On the Way to Work: A Little Tramp

On the way in to work last week, I spotted this guy on a lamppost near the California Blue Line stop. The thing that caught my eye was that it was done on a Priority Mail sticker from the US Post Office. I’d seen a lot more of these, back when I used to live in Wicker Park. Digging around…

A Man and His Tiger: Jackson Blue Line Stop, Chicago

Several times a week, at the Jackson Blue Line stop downtown, there are performers singing or playing instruments, entertaining the crowds to and from their way to work. I’ve seen Morris (found out his name today) many times, and even mentioned him here once before. While I have heard him sing before, I’ve also heard him do many songs in…

On the Way to Work

Thought about titling this post “Maximum Ogre-Drive,” but then thought better of it. Spotted this guy on the way to work, near the California Blue Line stop.

Storm Damage, Logan Square

On the way to work, I stopped to check out a little bit of the damage from last night’s storm. There wasn’t a ton of stuff near us (I heard Wicker Park and North Ave got it bad). In talking with Liz, she recalled that huge storm from last year. Comparing the two, she said that this one “didn’t even…

Black (and Blue) Balloons

On the way to work this morning, I saw the blue balloon again. Today, it looks a bit worse for wear, after having survived a pretty heavy downfall of snow the past day or two. 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)…

On the Way to Work: Heavy Snowfall

We got hit with a ton of snow yesterday, which lasted through the entire night. This morning, on the way to work… I stopped to take a few photos en route. 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…

On the Way to Work: Six Heavily-Armed Asians

This morning, while walking to work, I stumbled across three asian tourists (the two women and the man on the right), standing at the corner of Jackson and Wabash. As I passed by, I noticed they were ARMED TO THE GILLS with cameras. And not just regular ‘ol cameras. Fancy ones. The ones with humongo lenses that I only tend…

On the Way to Work

At first, the thing that caught my eye was that this kid’s bike had is own U-lock. Shortly after that, I started wondering a bit more about the gigantic antlers on the front. I was running late for work, and had to fight the urge to look around for the owner (or parent), and ask a lot of questions. Sadly,…

On the Way to Work

Since moving to Logan Square, I haven’t really taken all that many photos on my morning walks to the train. Going down California, there’s not nearly as much to see (as opposed to walking down North Ave). Well, wait. I just typed that in, and it feels untrue. I think, perhaps, I’m just not looking hard enough, as there’s always…

On the Way to Work

Some mysteries can’t be explained. I wonder what doors these go to. In particular, that fancy looking key up top… does it open just one, or all of the Doors of Perception?

On the Way to Work

This is what it looks like from the outside. This is what it looks like from the inside. Ugh. I can’t imagine doing that. I’m not so good with heights.
