Creepy Barn

This is an awesome yet somewhat creepy barn. I found it in the outskirts of Sterling IL. tons of great farms and many abandoned ones too. Look for a minute you will see a face at least I do!

I love the arboretum

With fall coming up quickly I had to run out to the arboretum and capture some summer shots! Soon we will have lost all our summer colors and moved on to yellows and oranges! I love this nice shade of purple, and lovely shape of the tree!

Flower Power

I don't often do photos of flowers, but these were gorgeous. I had to shoot this picture. Such vibrant colors. And I printed this picture out on bamboo paper (gives it a warm tone) and it looks fab! I am all about trying new paper types. I have been having a great time with textured papers and this Bamboo paper.

Well see you all tomorrow!

Before Picture

I didn't want to skip Friday but I am home late and figured I would at least post something! Here is a before picture for the Forgotten photo I posted earlier! Kinda kewl in color too right?

Bonus Picture!

a bonus for today! I was looking at some old files and redid this one I usually have in B/W in color. It has awesome red to it and lots of neat lines etc. I just love this abandoned building. This is near my cottage in a small town called ROCK FALLS, IL

It's "downtown" area is quite abandoned and I spend alot of time out there shooting! You will see a lot more of this town! I promise!

Hope you like!

Newest Print needs a TITLE

Well as promised I have been out shooting and finding unusual things! This is my newest! I already submitted it for publishing to a local mag. but the name is not the best. I called it Pig Face. How dull. I need some help here so any suggestions would be a plus. I think it is a neat picture. I can't tell if its a real boars head or if this is wood? I was quite far from it and used a telephoto lens to shoot, but the texture was very odd!

This is exactly the thing you find out in the middle of nowhere on a Farm! LOL

Well shoot me some suggestions!
See u all tomorrow!

Here is my first photo I want to share and show you all

This is a lovely shot of a local cemetery in Lombard, IL. I titled it Forgotten since the stone has since faded and you can no longer see who is there.

It's a simple composition and somewhat contrasty. This photo was published last year in the Prairie Light Review!


Ok here is my new idea! I want to posting here daily so I am going to start showing a picture a day! Talk about how and why I took the shot and share it with you all! any comments or ideas on what you want to see? shoot me some comments!


one of many shots to come!
