My son loves to read the Harry Potter books. He’s also into reading any kind of graphic novel. We had a great time making this photo happen, from concept to delivery. It was also a great illustration in “movie magic” for him and a lesson in knowing that not everything you see can be believed.
This is a little bike path that rides behind our local elementary school and adjacent to a beautiful cemetery.

I am learning to find the peace in watching them live their own lives and make their own adult-sized decisions, even when they don’t match my vision.
This shot was taken in Chicago’s Chinatown in fall of 2017. It was an unusually cold day in the city, around 30 degrees, so this gentleman was soaking up some rays of sun just inside the entry of one of the public buildings.
