On The Way To Work

Today was the kind of cold Chicago day your mother warned you about. I woke up and shivered around the apartment a bit. After doing a quick spot-check of the windows (which seem to be holding up ok), I found that the door in the living room was leaking cold. I’m talking a stream of cold air like a hose….

Painters

On my way to work, I noticed two men painting part of the bridge on Wells. I stopped, and asked if I could take their pictures. At first, they were both a bit wary. But after assuring them of my good intentions, they relented. As I was setting up, the gentleman on the right started to try to spur his…

On The Way To Work

I could have gotten a better image, but I rushed myself. Instead of waiting around, I tried to snap a quick pic of this woman smoking. Had I stuck around another 2 minutes, I’m sure I would have gotten a better shot.

So It Begins

First snow of the year. This was a rather unsettling thing to see, but it was bound to happen. The past few winters have been remarkably tame (compared to the very first winter when I arrived in Chicago). For the longest time, I thought every winter here would involve mountains of snow and evil, evil wind. This morning, my hair…

Evidence Of A Storm

Saw this on my way to work this morning. The pine tree in the yard was draped with tons of leaves that obviously got blown from somewhere else. They looked less from a tree, and more like plant leaves that got ripped by, what must have been some seriously strong winds. I was dead to the world last night. I…

I’m Easily Distracted In The Mornings

On my way to work, I stopped in my front yard and took some pictures. The first one was some leaf that I noticed, which must have been blown here by the wind and come to rest on the pine tree. The second picture is of some berries, growing on a nearby bush. Though I haven’t tried to actually eat…

Oddly

I woke up feeling pretty great this morning. I kept hitting the snooze button, but instead of painfully clawing my way into consciousness… I slowly, comfortably made my way awake. I put on a shirt I haven’t worn in a long time, and… and… dare I say it? I thought I looked rather good today. Like I said, weird. I…

Found Note

Is your name… JASON? If the answer is yes, and you were at Subterranean the evening of Saturday, April 5th, and remember running into a bachelorette party and a girl named Janeen… I lost your phone number (long story), but would like to contact you… SO, if you are the Jason I am looking for, e-mail me, and tell me…

Preface

I came across this today, on my way to work. This made me feel SO damn good I was skipping the rest of the way. What a wonderful, magical thing to come across. I felt like the world was full of chance and possibility, and that we have a hand in shaping that chance. After seeing this, I felt like…

On My Way to Work…

Brought the camera with me today, to document the whole sensory deprivation tank experience. Walking to the train, I started snapping a few photos. And in the afternoon, I got a few more when going to the bank. Feels good to be using that camera again. Stopped to take this. It’s nothing more than some cable wire, but I got…
