This is the floor in my home office. If you like it you should check out the Reuse Depot in Maywood, Illinois (just west of Chicago) http://reusedepot.org . They have tons of old lumber and reclaimed items from homes. As you can tell a particular favorite of mine is old hardwood flooring. Here's a recent look at what they have and info on where it's from.

My was Douglas fir from the attic room of a home in Elmhurst that was built around the beginning of the twentieth century.

Roll #17, Frame 14

Twenty years ago I set off driving around Illinois photographing old barns I thought had just out grown their usefulness. Little did I know I was capturing the result of a changing rural landscape that was starting to see the massive, but slow, effects of population decline.

Someone once told me to stop talking about controversial things on social media, like politics & race, and "just post cute photos of your kids." I'd like to point out that person also didn't know the primary election was two weeks away at the time, but I digress.

However, in light of the fact that way too many people I know personally have no idea that I photograph weddings & portraits as well as the news & corporate work. I thought it might be a good idea to start posting more photos in 2017.

Thank you to all my friends for the birthday wishes (43 years in case you were wondering) and thank you to all who kind took me up on my virtual birthday wish.

So every year I ask my friends who wish me a happy birthday for a virtual favor.

Please check out my documentary project www.LostAmericana.com (the blog link is worth clicking on) If you dig it, follow it on social media, or sign up for email updates. I send out like 4-6 a year and as a bonus I give away a free 8x10 print every 50 signups.

In the meantime you can enjoy this pictures which was taken when I was 22 and first started photographing what would turn in to a 20+ year long project.
