I took all of these photos on the same day, June 25th. The large woman was at the Taste of Chicago, in the 90+ degree sun. She was directly across from the souvenir stand, so I'm fairly sure she was OK, and there were plenty of cops checking in on folks. Later that day I walked back to the Wabash el station, and there was this guy in the alley next to the Cultural Center. I gave him a few dollars, I never spend much at the Taste, mostly because I no longer drink. I'll hunt down Connie's Pizza or a Gold Coast Dogs. The guy just wasn't up to talking, past to himself, and he reminded me of Sid Ceaser in an odd way. The guy in the middle I saw on the next corner, he likely was homeless, and he was a very angry dude, yelling at everything and everyone. And that was Friday, June 25th, 2010 in downtown Chicago.
