Jobless Rate

Hundreds of people walking down the sidewalk during the evening commute

Everyday you commute to work. “Another day, another dollar,” you may think. The Sun Times managers definitely think so.

On May 30, 2013 the Sun Times News Group let go all their photographers as “business” move toward creating more video content in their news pieces. They are going to immediately train their writers in “iPhone photography basics” and depend on freelancers to cover the hundred of years of combined experience of their former staff photographers. John H. White, Pulitzer prize winning photographer, and former Sun Times staff put it best, “It was as if they pushed a button and deleted a whole culture of photojournalism.”

Sun Times,

You’re going to need more than good luck to get you out of this storm. A few good photographers might do the trick, just maybe.

Joyous Life

Today especially, I feel the joy as this child fills life with laughter. Most awesome.

Baby Technology

New Born Child being held by mom minutes after birth

One week ago, my second child was born. It amazes me to think this person wasn’t here not too long ago, but now magically, miraculously is among us. This photograph was taken just moments after he was born. It is so amazing!

Coming in at a very distance second, the technology to assist us in welcoming the next generations of people is constantly advancing and changing. It includes everything from the glasses my wife wore, to the camera I used, to the machines and monitors that measured every heartbeat and chemical level between my son and wife.

I wonder what new technologies my children will have to help me with when we get older, but one thing is for sure, the next generations won’t get tired of amazing life begins and moves forward.

From Above


The events in Connecticut last week had brought me to uncontrollable tears. This photograph is of a Ceres Statue. Ceres is the goddess of agriculture and also motherly relationships. We all can use a little motherly love these days. Don’t take for granted your families.
“Love always. Cherish your family. Love for those who have lost love today.”

Musical Lights

I walked into Willis Sears Tower and was welcomed with heavenly music. It was a great way to start the week.

Glass Sky


I recently got a job downtown. I hope to get more pictures here for everyone to enjoy, but first things first: I need to enjoy them.

Just Another Day at the Office


I was just minding my own business until a brat danced in front of me happily commuting to work. It was just another day at the office.

Jungle Out There


The cricket was lucky that day. Not so lucky in the grand scheme of things though.


It was quite a sight to see the wolves active. It was amazing how they moved together. I’m sure seeing a pack of these without glass between me and them would be a very different experience.


I wonder constantly what a child is thinking. I want to see what they see and hear their thoughts.

Flying High

I can barely get on roller coasters.
