Paused to do a bit of window shopping on Michigan Avenue, and take a few photographs, too. This store is across the street from the Art Institute of Chicago.

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you.

  1. Such a wonderful collection of musical instruments. Almost as if they’re playing to us on the other side of the glass.

  2. That’s an attractive photo, though I’m not totally sure why. Obviously, interesting window contents “artfully” arranged. Having the window reflection seems to enhance it somehow, perhaps its the extra texture or since the subjects are partially obscured there is a bit of mystery thrown in.

  3. I live the composition of the story display, but I think it’s the reflections in the window that makes this image interesting. It’s one of those images that “the more I look, the more I see.”

  4. This one is really neat, reminds me of an old shop or something to that effect.
