Christmas Before Thanksgiving?

Welcome Back George!

Rogers Park
You may recognize this man as George the Pumpkin Man, but Halloweens over ...

And George is back with Christmas Trees.

First Snow, Thanksgiving morning.

Happy Thanksgiving.


First of all, I'm thankful for my family and close friends.

I'm thankful for my small apartment in one of the nicest vintage buildings in Rogers Park.

I'm thankful for my job, which is a constant project, that I get paid to do ... and I like projects.

I'm thankful for my opportunities and adventures: Adelphi, CGHG, Chicago Special Events Management, IAJE, Kate Smith Promotions, Quest ... and many, many more.

Let's hope that there are more positive sights to photograph this Winter.

Apartment Decay Continues

Rogers Park
Rogers Park Rogers Park
Rogers Park slumlord continues to insist that it will fix itself when it dries.

The Toxicity of Lead Paint:

Although lead improves paint performance, it is a dangerous substance. It is especially damaging to children under age six whose bodies are still developing.

Lead causes nervous system damage, hearing loss, stunted growth, reduced IQ, and delayed development. It can cause kidney damage and affects every organ system of the body. It also is dangerous to adults, and can cause reproductive problems in adult men.

One myth related to lead-based paint is that the most common cause of poisoning was eating leaded paint chips. In fact, the most common pathway of childhood lead exposure is through ingestion of lead dust through normal hand-to-mouth contact during which children swallow lead dust dislodged from deteriorated paint or leaded dust generated during remodeling or painting. Lead dust from remodeling or deteriorated paint lands on the floor near where children play and can ingest it. -Wikipedia
