These (mostly) were John's entries to the "Horizonless" post, and I liked looking at them as a set. John is a 49-year-old database developer in Oak Park, Illinois. He says he's still trying to figure out what kind of photographs he really wants to make.
P.S. "Environs of Chicago" is the title of a famous Harry Callahan photograph.

Dogman: "I love the sailfish (or marlin, or whatever). But all five photos are outstanding. My favorite photographs are photographs that look like photographs."
Tom Kwas: "I miss those Chicago newsstands. That's how you can tell you're in a 'real' city...extra gold star if they start to recognize you and grab your papers when you pull up or walk by...."
Christian: "....Oh, and the bike is SMASHINGLY good. As are the rest."
