It’s great fun to walk around and take pictures. I love to capture pictures that brighten your mood. You never know when something will fire your imagination. It could be peoples’ legs, colors, flowers, a lit Christmas tree or twinkling stars. If it looks good, I’ll snap it.Percy G.
I love the sky and the buildings and bridges and the art deco elements that are Chicago. The bird soaring over the city in an endless sky, says to me, “this is the land of the free and the home of the brave.”Calvin G.
I’m very interested in history, especially Chicago history. After a trip to the Chicago Cultural Center, I got very interested in skyscrapers because Chicago had the earliest hi-rise buildings. All my photos are of Chicago skyscrapers.Thomas W.
I’m always on the go, looking for action and excitement, experimenting and trying new things; that’s who I am- an adventurer in Chicago. The excitement of the streets, what is revealed in the dusk and the dawn, the wonder and brilliance of the smallest insects fascinate me. Many of my pictures are shot in the rain. These rainy photos produce such a good feeling, it’s almost like time has been suspended and the moment is frozen forever.Mike B.
When I took these pictures, it was like I was looking at an angel walking on the lake. When light and water come together, it is peaceful and calm. They create a moment when I feel “real.” I feel free.Robert L.
I love fashion and preserving images that allow everyone to see and share the beautiful moments in life. I take a lot of shadow pictures; me casting my movie with dream people, me saying, ‘look at me, see me, look at him, and see him.’ My many shadow pictures are about the hidden wounds that you can’t always see because they’re on the inside.Lynn W.
ASV got me in touch with my musical and photographic past. I especially love this statue of Jesus sleeping. It is very important to me. I’ve been there. I have slept on beaches in the cold and the wet and it isn’t easy. Most people think this figure is of a homeless person, but it’s Jesus. You can see the nail holes in his hands and feet. When you understand that it is Jesus, you understand that there is hope. I was baptized at Willowcreek Community Church, Chicago Campus.Tony R.
I have been with ASV for a long time, so now I am always ready to shoot pictures when that big moment is within sight. I think that is a perfect image of Jesus. It contains all the elements of his story and it depicts his serenity and wisdom. I snapped White Sox rookie #79 Jose Abreau, because I think he will lead the Sox to victory. I love the clouds all lit up. It was as if I was receiving a postcard, it was so perfect.Kenny S.
This year I tried to do something different. I went to Michigan to tell my stories through nature. After a lifetime of hard work, my mother was finally able to leave Detroit and live in a house with the views I photographed. To me these views are a symbol of my family’s hard work and ultimate success. I also like to think about the beauty of this place and all the families tucked into her hills and valleys.Robert R.
I really like taking pictures of flowers, abstracts and water. All these things are constantly changing. That’s why I like the night sky. It’s a sign of what’s coming next; rain, nightfall, and eventually the stars will come out.Chester P.
