I found myself at PLUSH, a new hip watering hole on Madison Street in Chicago, Thursday night.

The reason for my visit was to photograph a fashion show of clothes from thrift shops put on by Classy Closet in Evanston.

It was a joy to shoot in such a visually friendly environment. The decor was beautiful, the lighting was beautiful and the people were beautiful.

As usual, I arrived 45 minutes early, looking to get some non-fashion show images.

When I eyed Josilyn McDonald outside, I assumed that she was one of the models so I made several images of her through the entry way.

After getting her name, I found out that she wasn’t part of the show.

Bad for the paper but good for my blog because everything I have shot lately is for future use so I have had a hard time coming up with stuff to share here.

Once tonight’s pix hit the paper, I will post a shot or two.

  2. Ah, the ol’ “I thought you were a model” line. Well played.
