Chicago Spring Fog

For the first half of yesterday I ran around the city for a few meetings. Thinking ahead I brought my camera with me, not realizing it was foggy outside. When everything was done, I decided to walk around downtown and around Foster Beach taking photos of the environment around me.

Etsy Store Now Open

Years of saying “Hey, I should sell prints” coupled with years of friends saying “Hey, you should sell prints” have finally led to this fine moment…

My Etsy store is officially open.

There are currently nine images up for sale as 7×5 ($20) and 14×11 ($75) prints. If you want a custom size, let me know and that can happen. If you’ve seen something on my site before that you really loved and want to buy, let me know and I can added it to the store.

The snow is finally melting and I’m back to walking a slower pace between locations. All of this means I can take my time and use the puddles to create reflective photographs of the city.

These puddlegrams, named as such by their use on Instagram, are one of my favorite ways to look at the city from a different perspective. These are a few of my favorite shots I’ve made with my mobile phone over the past few months.
