The day was already pretty hot, and it was uncomfortable outside. But I swear – if I didn’t have to go in to work, I would have stayed out here and watched. And probably tried to talk to the workers, to ask a bunch of annoying questions.
We never really talked about anything in detail. Our conversations were always in passing, but when I saw her (she worked the first part of the day), we said hello to each other. There may have been some small talk about the building, about some maintenance projects, and things of that nature. But nothing really personal. The most I ever learned is that she has a fiance, but no other specifics beyond that.
Spotted this on the Metra platform, as I was waiting for the train in to work. Something about the recent storms and finding this single leaf made me pull out my camera.
Spotted this guy at 55th and South Lake Park Avenue, touching up the mural along the north side of the street.
What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
On my way in to work this morning, I spotted a fun thing. At Millennium Station near the Randolph/Michigan exit, I spotted two vendors who had set up shop. On the left are some guys selling fresh fruit; on the right, there’s a guy selling Krispy Kreme donuts.
Not sure why fog makes things so interesting. I guess a large part of it is that it prevents you from looking too far away, and forces you to focus on things that are closer and more immediate.
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.
Though he’s too small, I imagined him clinging to the tip of a tree branch – having made it through the worst of our winter, only to finally succumb today, after having persevered through this year’s blizzard.
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.
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.
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.
At a distance, it looked like it might have been embroidery. But getting closer, it appeared to be a lot of markers. I was really quite baffled as to what this could be or mean.
Spotted this door on my walk to work this morning. The temporary wooden door (with stuffing where the handle should be) is what caught my eye initially. But as I looked more, I started seeing a whole host of squares and rectangles surrounding the entrance.
