Chicago’s architecture is AMAZING; we learned on today’s walking tour that Chicago is the epicenter of America’s architecture. Since most of the city’s buildings were destroyed by the Great Chicago Fire in 1871 (remember Mr’s Oleary’s cow?) the city’s buildings are noted for their originality and style rather than their antiquity. My wife and I are here for a few days visiting the city with some good friends.

We wrapped the food photo shoot for the upcoming Tucson Botanical Garden Mexican Cookbook “Nuestras Recetas” a week ago. The best part is we get to eat the “food props” once finished! From left clockwise posole, frijoles, salsa verde, calabasitas, and mole.

This is the last in my trilogy of images inspired by Tucson’s Etherton Gallery’s B&W exhibit “Masters of 20th Century American Photography”. This is the rear entrance to the Hotel Congress where John Dillinger, Public Enemy No.1″, was captured in January 1934.
