There was something about this tree that really struck me. Maybe it's the vines, or maybe the full canopy of leaves, or the maze of branches. Some have said that it reminds them of Jack and the Beanstalk. To me it symbolizes age, strength and maturity.

Back in the late 90's and early 2000's I did a lot of recruiting for my former law firm. One of the places I visited regularly was Chicago. My annual visit to the Windy City usually coincided with Chicago Carifete, where I could soak up some Caribbean culture and food.

Awww. Photoshop. Love it or hate it, you've got to acknowledge the power of this photo editing giant. This photo, which was created several years ago, consists of the following elements: the face on the side of the building, water and people all from Chicago, the sky from a sunset in Atlanta, the stairs and wall on the left from the Carter Center in Atlanta (look familiar?), the tulips from the Georgia Capitol, and the mountains in the foreground from North Carolina. The inspiration for this photo came around midnight. I got out of bed and stayed up all night to finish it.

When you've got the photography bug, you can find a good photo anywhere. This photo was taken at an outdoor concert at Chastain Park in Atlanta, GA. I was sitting with a group of people when this bottle caught my eye. The folks around me didn't even know that I was shooting.

It's getting close to midnight and I haven't posted for the day. I just reached for my cell phone on the nightstand to search for a photo that would provoke enough thought for a blog entry. Ah, some unlit candles sitting on the counter. When I think about it, unlit candles have so much potential. With the stroke of a match, they can produce light, heat, and energy. They can create a warm mood, or come through for us in an emergency. They can also cause destruction if used improperly. Yet if they remain unlit, they do nothing but take up space. Sounds a little like people. Good night world.
