Biography

I started in photography in 1969 when my father gave me his old Kodak Retina II. The next year I bought my first SLR, a Pentax Spotmatic and, from then on, I was hooked. I shoot a variety of different subjects with my favorites being nature, trains and anything that documents our culture. I also like using editing software to play with some of my images.

        Goblins on my mind... again :-) That's nice, Mark, I like the simplicity of color tones, only blue's and brown's.

            A lot of places give them discounts which is good. Except for a handful of bad ones, they are really decent guys.

          That's amazing. There aren't many businesses still in business since 1933. Especially small business. This must be part of your collection of old bldgs. It's great. They're interesting and nostalgic.

            Thanks, Mark. Yes it is. I posted the photo on some Chicago-oriented groups on Facebook and, apparently, the food there is pretty good. I'll have to go back and try it some day.
