Piece description from the artist
The was shot on top of a parking garage on the East Side of Milwaukee. I wanted to do something to emphasize the word "Elevator" in the shot, and thought, what better way than to make it very tall. Processed originally as a horizontal 32-bit HDR pano, I felt vertical was the way to go so I cropped it and added much of the sky in Photoshop.

Emotion. Mood. Feelings. This is what I capture through my photographs. Whether it is landscapes, architectural elements, still life, or macros – it is a very personal journey as my own fears, triumphs, beliefs, and shortcomings are exposed with each photo.
Much of what I shoot is done spontaneously without preconceived thought or plan. I let what is around me dictate what is photographed.
And the shooting is only the first step – a jumping off point. I take the raw images and create what I see in my mind’s eye. Coaxing out textures present in the shot – sometimes adding them. Enhancing the contrast of light and dark to create the mood and emotions I felt and feel. In the end, it’s all about listening to my heart and mind and creating a visual representation of what I feel the moment the shutter is released.
