28 October 2014: The Falling of the Year

This tree at an undisclosed location in Rogers Park is a favorite of mine
 at any season. The lower part of its trunk grows almost horizontally.
I am always afraid that one day it will be chopped down as a nuisance,
but i really hope not.

16 October 2014: Chicago Fashion Week

It's Chicago Fashion Week, and if you walk from the Red Line to the Blue through the Block 37 concourse, you are bound to encounter something far different from the usual array of business suits, Bulls caps, and Blackhawks jerseys. 

Pictured here is a design by Alexander Knox of Columbia College Chicago, 
who was a contestant on this season of Project Runway
To be perfectly honest, i'm not the most fashion-conscious person out there, 
but this was definitely a lovely, whimsical design 
(I only wish i'd been able to get a better picture on my phone).

13 October 2014: Welcome to Rush Hour

As much as i love Rogers Park, occasionally i have to leave in order to earn
my daily bread. Being packed into the L at rush hour is no fun at all. 

But fortunately, our many excellent buskers always help to lighten the mood.
These guys were among the best i've heard.
