In July, I was able to return home to Chicago.  It wasn’t to see family or friends (but I did manage to have dinner with a few girlfriends).  I traveled to the City of Big Shoulders to attend Clickaway.  The tag line for Clickaway is “a photography experience that changes everything”, and it lives up […]

Clickaway 2022 – A Visit Home

I really don’t listen to pop music.  Primarily, I listen to Christian music, but of late, my Spotify channel consists of the music from my youth.  I could not tell you who the most popular artists are, or what songs that they sing. However, I am familiar with the song “Easy on Me” by Adele.  I didn’t know […]

Forest Valkyrie

On August 28, 2020, we lost Chadwick Boseman, Prince T’Challa, from colon cancer.  He was 42 years of old.  Chadwick was diagnosed with Stage 3 in 2016.  What’s amazing and inspiring is that over the last 4 years, this man created memorable movies including his role as the Black Panther.  While he fought his battle, we enjoyed his roles.  This […]

Do It Scared

Last month, I put out a model call.  I had just switched to Sony, and I was anxious to get someone in front of my camera.  In all transparency, I did purchase a Sony A7ii last year, but I convinced myself that I didn’t like it.  The truth of the matter was that I had invested a great […]
