Photography is a lifelong passion for Douglas Black, and while not capturing enthusiastic smiles at Wrigley Field and other sports venues around Chicago, he captures moments in the built environment.
And in his spare time, he works on getting that Captains License, expecting to retire on the water one day, taking photos.
