    If it ever does get redeveloped, I will offer the owner $500 for the Giesche sign.
    According to this article, the current photos were done by a COD student who is a young woman named Zlatka Burtis.

    So are you worried that a different crop of photos by your unnamed nemesis photographer will replace these? Or are you trying to criticize the work of this student?

    The photos that are currently on display in the former Giesche are pretty awesome.

    Yes, quite good. Talented. Unlike the photos in another store front. Someday, I will rat that guy out to all to show how dishonest he was. But for now, keep guessing.

    Not a Nemesis. Just a very dishonest person that went out of his way to steal and misdirect people.

    I would never criticize a student. In this digital age, I am seeing a ton of wonderful work from Middle school on up to High school work. The school my son attends has a camera class starting in 5th grade and using film and digital. They develop their own film in a darkroom and display the work in the hallways. Some of it is just amazing how good it is.

    The idea to display work in empty store fronts was presented to the village and property owners back in 2006 by someone. It did not fly back then. I am glad they are doing it now. Brilliant idea. Would love to see a lot more and it changed up more often.

    I talked to Al Lewek about the dishonest photographer before he passed, he just brushed it off. There were 4 other photographers that were getting ripped, they felt differently. Why target Al? He probably took photos of 50% of the people in this town the last 30+ years and was a village treasure. He was always nice and did fine work. RIP Al.

    Save Main Street Glen Ellyn—Stop Apex400 Development petition (link)

    The Village of Glen Ellyn is considering a mixed-use development...so we urge the Village Board to reject the proposal for Apex400 brought forth by GSP Development and 400 Main, LLC.

    Thanks! The editing on that shot was quick and dirty and not real great. I can do lots better. You want the real sign? Cool. I just want one of the hands from the millennium clock to make a sundial out of for my backyard.

    Either way, I can get you a print of that, given some lead time (I don't print my own stuff). The "a downtown to treasure" banner was an extra bonus in the background.

    I have it. Between 12 and 1 before I head off to work is about my only window to call you.
