As I was walking through the Nelson-Atkins museum,I noticed a beautiful woman being photographed outside. The small doorway provided some great negative space to frame her in. Nothing like being ready with camera for once.
Nothing says fun like like whacking a pinata with a bat. Could we pick a more dangerous activity for child to do? Maybe carving pumpkins with a chainsaw? Hunting for Easter eggs in poison ivy? I'm sure we can come up with something.....

I just happened to see this setting in a vacant restaurant in Union Station,the light and position was perfect. After I took my shot,I look up to see a security guard motioning for me to leave. All the best photos have some element of risk,danger or trouble. Coincidentally,these are my favorite themes. I tend to view a "No Trespassing" sign as "Come on in,Carlo".
There are mirrored table tops at Succotash restaurant,they make for interesting photographs. Great light,great setting and a great place to eat.
The shining electric pagoda set against the dreary sky after sunset is a great visual. I just love LA's Chinatown, so glad I got to visit there during December of 2009. It was refreshing to walk around in the drizzle,enveloped in the warm glow of neon light.

I just love this lone lantern lighting the way,standing out among the others. It kind of reminds me to keep on shining no matter what happens in life.
One morning,I awoke to this scene outside my window in Radda in Chianti,Italy. Was I dreaming? Could anything be this beautiful? Would I be able to grab my camera in time before the fog cleared? These are the moments that you live for......

The tones in this photograph remind me of the old Autochrome films of long ago. I spend more time trying to get that muted analog film feel. Here under the muted foggy sky,it just happened naturally.
