Yesterday, I was a

Yesterday, I was a bit hesitant to whip out my camera to record the snowblower guy. Today, however, I shrugged off my self-consciousness, and snapped a photo of this bin. I’ve seen these big things around at the outdoor stops, but never really knew what was inside. I figured it was full of tools. Turns out it’s sand. Talking with…

Test Drive

Rachelle runs one of the few blogs that I actually frequent with any regularity. I like her images a great deal, and she’s one of the few out there who updates her blog daily. Recently, her camera broke down and she’s trying to figure out what her next camera will be. I recommended the G6 (which is what I got)……

On the way to work

Saw these in the street, right near the Damen Blue Line stop. What is it with me and old balloons? Shortly after this, I walked up to the platform at the Damen stop. There was a guy using a snowblower on the far West side, and I really should have tried to record him. Part of me felt a bit…
