If I Was a Car Thief

For me though, every time I see the same leaflets on every car… I think about how that’s exactly the sort of thing I’d do, if I were a professional car thief.

Locked Keys

I’ve done enough apartment hunting to know that typically, some realtors will leave keys to an apartment unit in locks in this manner. In an interesting twist: these locks contain keys. I find that really silly, the more I think about it.

I was kind of surprised by this, and got a slightly better photo. It made me think that the two of us, though separated by our species, have our little patterns and routines.

A Pair of Parakeets

I took a few photos, but stood still for fear I’d scare them away. And it’s a good thing I did, because the moment I took one step closer towards them… they immediately flew off.

That’s a Serious Chainsaw

Spotted this while standing on the Metra platform. My first reaction was “cool!” My second was to grab my camera and snap a picture of this thing as it was barreling down the gravel along the Metra tracks.

What’s the Story Here?

Spotted this on the way to work, and I have to say… I’m stumped. I assume the same person placed these items here, and I’m trying to figure out any kind of narrative that connects them.

Shades of Blue

Got lost in thought for a few minutes, last week, while waiting for the Metra to arrive. I was looking up, and enjoying the outline of the wires against the sky.

Close Enough

Spotted this while walking to work. At first I thought the car on the far right was being a jerk, and crept up on the car in the middle.
