Sit down with your morning libation and enter Max’s world – brought to you by my favorite story-teller, Lisa Ahn. You are in for a treat – one with sprinkles!
There were at least fifty coffee shops inside the city, and Max knew every one. If he heard about a new café, read the advert in the paper, he couldn’t rest until he’d tried it. He’d grab his Suze’s hand and they’d be off, a fedora and a pillbox hat, old folks on adventures.

It hasn’t happened yet – I haven’t had my fill of photographing the Cleveland Museum of Art atrium. Read the rest of this entry
When I began this photographic journey, making images was an almost daily occurrence. I committed to multiple 365 projects – although I never completely succeeded in that quest. But the point was that photography was an integral part of my daily life.
Somewhere along the way, photography has transformed into a special occasion activity. Now I tend to shoot only on weekends, usually as part of a planned “photography road trip” to nearby points of interest. Some of my favorite images have resulted from these explorations and I plan to continue these photographic sojourns.
But as I look ahead to 2015, I am also launching a Project 52 – a weekly photography challenge. The rules? One photograph per week of a Canton icon – the Stark County Courthouse. I am intrigued to work within these self-imposed limitations – finding 52 different ways to present this historic building and celebrate its beauty within the downtown landscape.
I am also a little scared to commit once again to a regular photography practice – here in public where I will be held accountable for my action or inaction. It is so much easier to stay inside during these winter days – am I willing to make the effort?
But I hope to bring some balance back to my photography – explorations of both the brand new and a deep study of the familiar.
What do you have on tap for the new year?
It’s no secret that I love shiny – shiny buildings, shiny windows, shiny reflections.
It’s the light and color. The lines and reflections. The sheer joy of experimentation.
