A Note We Weren’t Meant to See

On the way to work Friday morning, I happend by a sign in the door of a building. This was one of those full-glass doors, with a solid black bar across the middle.

Critical Mass Bikers, Logan Square

On my way home, I got stopped right at Logan Boulevard. A sea of bicycles went by, stopping traffic from all directions. Luckily I got my camera out, and shot a few minutes of everyone biking by. There were a lot of folks yelling out “Happy Friday” to everyone, and lots of smiling and waving. This was a fun end…

On seeing it this morning, I was reminded of a black balloon I saw back in Wicker Park (and a photograph I intended to take)…

I don’t think the snowfall amount was a record breaker, but it was definitely the most we’ve had so far this year. Outside my front door, the bushes were…

Ted Leo @ Logan Square Auditorium

Chris mentioned this show to me a few days back, but I waffled and wasn’t intending on going. Today, I got a last-minute invite (turns out he had an extra ticket, thanks to Leslie), and I was debating all morning whether or not to go. I went against my usual, homebody nature… and went with to the show. Partly because…
