  • A couple of weeks ago a big storm rolled through the area and I was tasked with making a picture or two. I made this picture of a pedestrian crossing the Main Street bridge in St. Charles from my driver seat in a parking space. While I deemed it kind of a success, I also felt like a bit of a slacker. I ended up getting out of the car and shooting something else across the street. This picture was published in the weekly Perspective column.
