"I was trying to daydream, but my mind kept wandering."

It was a cold November day. I think it was around 30 degrees. While I was walking I noticed a woman undressing and getting ready to go for a swim in the lake. When I asked her if she was OK? She responded in a thick Russian accent. This isn't cold. I take a swim every day, even in the heart of winter.

The Innocence of Childhood

I stopped by the beach to capture the waves on a cold and stormy day in Chicago. My thoughts were with a friend, who is struggling with some childhood abuse issues. As I was taking these pictures, a particular song from Fiddler on the Roof kept playing in my head. As I put this video together it all just seemed to fit together.

This is for my friends who are feeling traumatized after they vote today. It's so sad and scary the choices we have been given. Hope this helps to get you out of that voting funk.

It was a beautiful fall day when I went for a stroll in the bird sanctuary in Montrose Harbor in Chicago. It was so odd that I heard so many birds, but never saw any.
