At the Japanese Garden

At the Japanese Garden, a part of the larger Garden of the Phoenix at Chicago’s Jackson Park with photowalk buddies Mark, Nenad and Lucy, June 11, 2018.

We planned to have a sunset shoot, but the sun was nowhere to be found. We stayed anyway just because.


From the Garden of the Phoenix website:

“The new Garden of the Phoenix symbolizes Japan and US’s 160-year story of friendship, turmoil and prosperity. This park, home to Skylanding by Yoko Ono, a revitalized landscape and future pavilion, is a public space to reflect on our history and watch the future rise.”

Nenad in infrared (he was taking infrared shots so I thought I would render this in infrared).

The women of Jerusalem

Photographer photographing the women of Pilsen playing as the women of Jerusalem in the community’s passion play reenacting the Via Crucis (Stations of the Cross) on the Via Dolorosa in the streets of Pilsen, a predominant Latino community in Chicago’s southwest side.

The Via Dolorosa is a street within the Old City of Jerusalem, believed to be the path that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion.
