The photographs of the Pilsen neighborhood are scenes a native of the area may come across everyday. The black and white images are of the shapes and simplicity that this part of town possesses. Enjoy the photographs now, even better go out and appreciate the way things are now, take photographs of Pilsen, paint it , or draw it, Things will be different in the years to come.

My beach photographs were made with a pinhole camera. Pinhole photography is probably the simplest way to take a picture. This helps me relax and have fun at the lakefront, combing the beaches finding interesting objects to capture on film.
