I woke up thinking about luchadores? Yes I did. I thought I might find some masks to post. While it was cool to see the photos of the real Nacho Libre, I still liked Jack Blacks version better. Sorry Fr. Nacho. And there were way too many images of Santo, Lucha Libre, and Mistico to choose from. I decided to scrap the idea. And then like an unexpected flying leap from the ropes, I stumbled upon a black and white photo of ” Santo con helado(ice-cream)” and oneof L’ange blanc playing pinball, and Hurricane Ramirez, ” the prince of silk” smoking a pipe- all with their colorful masks on. Awwwwww-the human side of these macho mad men! So many touching moments to choose from. But in the end, I kept revisitingthis photo of the Blue Demon. I imagined it was for his high- school yearbook. Crazy I know. Any chance I wondered if he was voted most likely to body slam an opponent?
As I was walking West on Roosevelt Road, I spotted this unusual perspective on the Willis Towers. Had no idea how much the dinasours enjoyed it!
I love to look at faces. I am particularly drawn to misshapen features, wrinkles, and intensity. I like faces that elicit a reaction. Hopefully I will discover more faces like this one, so I may share them.
I love this!

old picture, new look, new reprocessing. Beautiful location and photo-op, perhaps beaten to death. Being to beautiful and full of abstract possibilities makes it seem very easy to photograph, but on hind-sight it also makes it very challenging to get something working well, IMO
