  1. I enjoyed this sight. Being a Canon Explorer of Light I know many of the photographers that you have listed (Vicent, John Paul all fellow EOL). If you ever need anything let me know. Keep up the good work.

  2. Hey there,

    Great blog! I noticed you’ve covered David DuChemin’s photography quite a bit here. I work for Peachpit Press and I wanted to let you know that a sample chapter from his forthcoming book, “Within the Frame: A Journey in Photographic Vision,” is now available to download for free on our site. Enjoy!

  3. Kara – I/We love the Peachpit family of photographic authors. DuChemin is alright ya know – for a Canon-shooting Canuck. Someday he might grow up and turn into a McNally. I actually downloaded my this morning so good timing. I’m going to actually pull this comment out and write a little Peachpit love entry and will point people to it. Thanks for dropping by – and keep up the good work. DBV

  4. I noticed you offer a photo class to homeschooled children during the year. Do you offer a similar class during the summer to those children who attend a traditional school? My 12 year old is interested in photography but I am having a hard time finding a class for him to take. Thanks for your help.

  5. We are having a local workshop given by Steve and Shelly Harrington. Normally, these are not in our area … so the advantage of a Midwest Workshop by a major Senior photographer is such a great opportunity. The workshop is limited to 30 people its three day hands on workshop. You can find the details at this weblink.

  7. Hi

    Found your website while googling for bridges Mackinaw, Il.

    You must be not far from me although I am not that familiar with the area you mention in your Mackinaw river blog.

    The reason I am writing is to find some more abandon bridges in the Mackinaw, Il area. I found one that is really strange. There is basically no road access, well what you could really call a road. You go south on Schmigdall Rd (gravel) just west of of Mackinaw, off of Rt 9. This peters out and you find yourself riding on top of a narrow levee (grass). Follow along that and you find an old iron bridge. There is no road leading to or from it.

    From what I could find out it was built about 1910 for $2200 (google: 1910 contracts let in Il). There must have originally been a road connected, perhaps an Old Rt 9, but there is nothing there now except cornfields on both sides and the levee.

    I took some nice photos of it with the sun just rising and shining through the bridge. Unfortunately, the sun was not positioned in the opening of the bridge, just to the side of it obscured by trees. Maybe at the right time of the year the sun will be positioned so that is is centered in the bridge opening.

    Anyway, I would like to find similar odd scenes in the area and I am not too familiar with the area. You might like to check it out.
