Searching for inspirado

May 27, 2009

That’s what I’ve been doing.  Which in my world means that I’m waiting for a good idea to hit me. I took several pictures while in Chicago the last couple of weekends.  The question is whether any of these

almost-ideas will amount to anything.

These reminded me of the DC star.  Maybe a series someday?

Last weekend we were in the suburbs.  We toured Frank Lloyd Wright‘s home and studio.  We also wandered around Oak Park looking at some of Wright’s prairie inspired architecture.  The art glass is my current hope for inspirado.  I even purchased a book about it.

My apologies to Frank LLoyd Wright. My photography doesn’t do justice to his work.
