There has been a lot of fires in Chicago this week. As the weather turns cold, people start using small electric space heaters, homeless start setting small fires inside abandoned buildings to stay warm. If extreme caution is not used, this practice can turn deadly. The following photo’s are of a large warhouse fire that started on Chicago’s south side in the Bridgeport area on South Ashland Ave. The fire started on Tuesday night (1-22-13), these shots were taken the next day nearly 18 hours after the fire started. I’m happy to report that only one fire fighter suffered very minor injuries, could have been much worse. Nearly 200 fire fighters responed to this 5 alarm fire. These guys are simply amazing!

The winter of 2012 didn’t start out too cold but as you can see, still not a good day for shopping.
Spring has arrived!! Flowers blooming, water flowing, yay!
Summer fun in the city!
This past August I had the honor of being the ‘official photographer’ for the Northern Illinois Food Bank’s volunteer appreciation event.
My new camera arrived just in time for my trip to the northwest this past October.
Well, that brings us up to date for 2012. Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner!
