I was fortunate enough to go on a photo walk with a friend of ours, Zainab. When I worked at my previous job, I knew of Zainab only peripherally as our job functions didn't really overlap. However, my wife Karen followed Zainab's Facebook stream. One night Karen said, "you have to check out her work...she has a good way of seeing things."
Well, once I took a look I was happy with what I saw. Karen suggested that we go on a photo walk together, and this past weekend schedules finally meshed. We met up near her new place of work after a shift and meandered around the neighborhood (the Western Ave. & Clybourn Ave. area of Chicago).
It was one of those days when everything we looked at screamed, "photograph me!" I am thrilled with the amount of keepers that came from the walk. I know a few will make their way into the art fairs this summer.
Here is a gallery of just a few of my favs. I will be processing and posting the rest over the next week or so.
Thanks to Zainab for a great day. I have seen her shots from the walk, and she is deservedly happy with what she got as well!
