A Midwestern Photo Journey • By “Boris” Boden


On the weekends, I’m going to have contributing writers and photographers doing the posts here. It’ll give me a little break to get ready for next week and I feel it’ll give the blog a more varied voice. Today’s contributing writer/photographer is my good friend, “Boris” Boden, you can see his photo and bio here. “Boris” has contributed art to all my other blogs and recently he’s unleashed an inner passion for photography and he’ll be presenting a photo essay/journey every other week here at MBIP. Okay, lights, camera...”Boris!”

These photos were taken from LaSalle (the Train Club Car) all the way through Bloomington/Normal and headed West towards Peoria.

Not your “traditional” photos, I tend to look for 'the beauty in decay,” the slices of Americana and places, once gone and will be gone forever. I try to “see” things in ways that we normally pass by, a different light, angle, color or texture.

Enjoy the photo journey and we're glad you came along for the ride!
