I know someone was working here, and needed the manhole cover to remain exposed. I like how this didn’t need a sign, and still conveyed the message “I’m going to fix it tomorrow.”
After a few steps, it dawned on me – well of course they don’t have handcuffs. These aren’t cops, they’re guarding money. And so they care very little about arresting someone. They’re more concerned with keeping the money (and themselves) safe, and I guess that means shooting the other guy.
Spotted this small, singular mini-stonehenge as I was walking to work. It looked to me like there was some yardwork happening, and someone decided to get a little fancy with the leftover materials.
Spotted this on my walk to work, and found it lovely, self-referential, and symmetrical. And incredibly satisfying.
A week or so back, I walked in to work and saw Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was playing! A great movie, of course. But it felt a little mean to have this playing, while everyone had to walk past and head in to work.
I flipped the heart over, thinking that maybe it was from a dog or cat collar, with either an inscription or some information on the back. I was surprised to find this.
As we were walking to work, she joked to me that of the various things she had on… the top was the
only thing that she actually purchased, and didn’t make. When I realized the extent to which her ensemble was all hand-made, I insisted on a photo.
Spotted this on the way to work yesterday. It was disturbing to see what appeared to be a car accident, 10+ feet from the actual street/intersection and very clearly in an area designed for pedestrians (and bicyclists).
Since the parking garage itself is a series of inclines, it makes sense that a door at any point would look a little wonky. But it was just an odd thing to encounter, as I was walking to the elevator.
Spotted this on the way to work, yesterday as well. I guess I should have grouped it with the found balloon heart, but this moment deserved a post of its very own.
Spotted this balloon heart the day after Valentine’s day, stuck in a tree near our house.
Liz and I spotted this, at our Metra stop this morning. We were trying to figure out the direction of travel, and what might have prompted someone to traverse the tracks with all that snow on the ground.
It’s nice when the world tries to add in a little symmetry. Though, after watching Stranger Things, it’s hard not to be just a teensy bit worried about the Upside-Down.
