Hello Chicago!   must tell you I LOVE Chicago and all it has to offer!

Born in Chicago just 2 miles from my current residence near UIC / Rush in the Medical District / Little Italy. I lived in the Western Burbs most of my life. As a child and as young as 5 years old, I would take buses and trains from the burbs into Chicago. First it was just getting from point A to point B, then it became exploration! Now that I'm back in the city I love, I am back to exploring and enjoying everything Chicago has to offer. I love to share my adventures that is why when I'm out exploring, I carry a camera or a I like to say "Packing a Canon"  One thing I truly enjoy while I photograph our city is I still see it with the same wonder as the young child that traveled the streets exploring many year ago. So this is my "Another Look at Chicago" to share with all!
