Galena is always a great place to get away from it all. In 2020 Galena has been affected the same way as many other communities. Shut-downs, reduction of capacity, temporary outdoor dining, laying off employees, owners risking it all to remain open and try to break even. I too own a small business and wanted to do anything I could to help our small businesses.
Galena’s spirit is still intact. Where else can you go where time stands still; this past weekend especially. Every year Galena hosts its Living Windows and Luminaria. This is certainly been one of my favorite weekends as a photographer. Each window holds a story and it’s your job to enjoy it! People walk the sidewalks window shopping.
Everyone has photographed Galena in their own way. I started out my journey to capture the businesses differently. Photographing through the glass is difficult and most of us shy away from it. This evening I saw something different in the windows of Galena.
I hope you enjoy my images titled “Galena Holiday Reflections”. What do you see in the windows?
