A feast of colors is what the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is.
The Sundays of August are for free, and a lot of children add to the colors and vibrance of the garden.
Today, let´s do something different: send the colors away of the photographs, and bring out with desaturation the key shapes, lines, and a sense of mystery, something more symbolic and evocative.

Historically, New York is the mecca of architectural photography in the United States.
Many great photographers shot its skyline, its streets, its plazas: Berenice Abbott, Margaret Bourke-White, André Kertész, Paul Strand, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, to name just a few.
Chicago has the wonderful work of John Szarkowski.
It is about time to give some attention to the Magic City. Somebody has to do something.
Let´s get started.
