(or, it's Christmastime in the city)
all photos taken Dec. 21, 2009, posted from earliest to latest.
in the heart of the Loop
near the Sedgwick Brown Line station, Old Town. taken two weeks after this photo on Flickr...
can't believe they're still there. I didn't notice the pumpkin (hidden on the left) last time...
taken from the #72 North bus, Lincoln Park. CB2 is a sort-of hipper version of Crate & Barrel
(but they didn't add the graffiti)
Wal-Mart, west side of Chicago
bus stop across from Wal-Mart. strawberries in the snow, similar to one of the all-time great cosmetics color names (I shouldn't have to tell you, but it's Cherries in the Snow)
parking lot graffiti, bakery, Humboldt Park. there for a week now.
the city's Graffiti Busters were supposed to come out
Humboldt Park sidewalk
Humboldt Park alley
another Humboldt Park alley.
I would have taken more photos, but it was getting dark really early for some reason.
why, these photos seem sort of cynical...
