Like mining for images…

The choice of background can make or break a photograph. And when I’ve had multiple assignments in the same office building the search for something new becomes ever more important.

Thanks to Adrian DeLucca and Amber Sexton at Barron’s and to Jeff Rottinghaus for bringing his great grin and easy manner.
