Petrillo Music Shell – Chicago 2004
A few years ago I purchased a very unusual concave novelty lens. When I placed it in front of a Nikon 105 mm macro lens, it opened up a whole new way of seeing the world.
By the way, why has no one ever made a movie about James C. Petrillo?
“Chicago-born James Caesar Petrillo was arguably one of the most colorful, powerful and controversial labor leaders of the 20th century. Beloved by some, despised by many, Petrillo, as President of the American Federation of Musicians, ruled the nation’s professional musicians with an iron fist from 1940 to 1968. As President of the Chicago Federation of Musicians Local 10, he was boss of Windy City musicians from 1922 until dissidents unthroned him forty years later.”
Other people can’t make you see with their eyes. At best they can encourage you to use your own.
