Smallpools: Dreaming

smallpoolsDreaming

I kind of hate the video. But it’s the best version of the song online, so there you go. I’m not overly proud of the fact that I’m listening to these songs, because they’re just so damn exuberant and happy. And the type of music I gravitate towards is typically much more mellow and slower.

The Lonely Divvy Bike

Spotted this on my way to work. Funny thing is, there was some construction on the stairwell I normally take up – and as a result, I had to walk around near the front of this station.

The Slow Melt

leaningSnow

This bit of snow along our handrail has been leaning over more the past day or two. Each time I walk by, I’m careful not to disturb it – I genuinely want to see how far it will bend, before it totally crumbles under its own arc/weight.

Vents Along the Metra Tracks?

I can’t really zoom in, or walk over and peer down… so I figured the best I could do is post a photo and ask around on the Internet. Maybe there’s machinery located underneath the ground here, to control switches and such?

I’ve been dabbling around more with this Twitter bot, and actually got it to successfully post a status (text) and media (image) to a Twitter account. Pretty exciting stuff, actually! And amazingly straightforward, given both the tutorial I’m using and the availability of Node Modules.

Spotted this guy on the way to work. There was an assortment of items (a discarded suitcase, along with some books and newspapers) left near 54th street. On closer inspection, I realized that the book on top was a Bible (but had a swastika adorning the edge).

Found Robot

Spotted this guy on my walk to work, near the corner of Washington and Wabash. I don’t run across that much street art on my walks anymore, but this guy kind of caught my eye as I was waiting for the light.

Discarded Umbrellas

rainAngryUmbrella

Spotted a few discarded umbrellas, on the way in to work this morning. What stopped me in my tracks was the one umbrella, stuffed into the garbage – likely in a fit of frustration and anger. I would love to have seen the person who, very clearly, reached some kind of breaking point when their umbrella… also reached its breaking point.

If You’re Happy and You Know It…

On walking out to our car this morning, I spotted a smiley face in Bob and Julie’s car – a combination of early morning condensation and a little reflection. To me, it looked like the car was smiling – which in turn made me smile.
