It was one of those mornings where, seemingly everywhere I looked, there was something amazing and interesting to see. Something most might overlook. Something waiting to be found.
Spotted a truck dropping off a dumpster on State Street, yesterday. I walked by at first, but then swung back with my phone to try to snap a photo. Luckily for me, a guy had hopped onto the truck to talk to the driver… and the dumpster was paused in this position.
I imagined that all three would be of the same shape/size/color, but… apparently not. Mr. Silver Thinpants on the right there seems a little out of place, but what do I know?
Saw this a few mornings ago, while waiting for the train in to work. Is it sawdust? Debris? It appears to have been left or placed here on purpose, but I’m at a loss for what this might actually be.
It reminded me of the work skydivers will do, packing up their parachutes. All that equipment, and so much faith that it will take care of you high up in the air.
It seems like the thing on the left is what should be on all three platforms, but in looking closer… the platform on the right is much smaller. I’m assuming the black thing is a kind transformer for the adjacent building. But on the right? The thing made out of wood? No idea.
Spotted this on the way in to work. The clouds in the sky made me think of patchwork, of a quilt covering the whole of downtown Chicago.
On arriving at Millennium Station this morning, I walked through the doors to see a huge crowd gathered. I was curious what was hapening, and went in for a closer look.
I don’t see any sign. Do you see any sign? No? Well then how about you shut up then?
Spotted this on my way in to work. It’s a small, thin beam of sunlight – a perfectly straight line that seemed to mark the time on the building across the street.
After doing a bit of searching, I found that the building is Windermere House.
I found all this fascinating and could have stayed out here for an hour, just watching. I’m curious why they had three welders at once, and whether it was necessary for them to be working in tandem… or if they were just rushing to meet a certain deadline.
While walking to work this morning, I spotted two welders working on a new bus shelter on Madison. I’ve seen the ongoing construction along both Madison and Washington this year, but didn’t really know much about the Loop Link until I looked it up this afternoon.
