Welcome to Pilsen, one of the more colorful and random neighborhoods you’ll find in Chicago. Also, they have the coolest L stop in the whole city. These are details from Angel’s Tire Shop, open 24 hours. Sleep deprivation explains a lot…..
The Museum of Surgical Science is possibly one of the most interesting and little visited museums in town. It is also a great inspiration for nightmares and horror movies. Here I give a trepanning kit; for the drilling of holes into the skull, you know, to let out the evil spirits.
I am on vacation this week (whee!) and have finally found a chance to sit down a update my poor neglected blog. Sorry for the delay, it was really a case of having nothing new to post and preparing for a house guest.
This week is full of running around acting like a tourist and taking pictures everywhere, so I figured I’d try some candid street photography since as we all know I don’t think I have any great skill in photographing people. Here I offer you street chess, anyone can walk up and play a round of chess or checkers against anyone else who may want to play a game.
