37th Street Freeze-Out











3737 West Ashland. After a fire that took a day and a million gallons of water to put out. The building owner has been in jail since bribing an alderman.

Those Cock-Knocking Birds









On my front lawn, in the trees facing my yard, in the tree branches hanging over my garage. Why? Why?

GHOST LOVE REDUX

Back in January of 2010, I posted about the Insane Unknowns. All I really had to offer was that, as a decades-old gang on the northside, they coined a very unique name. Today I received three emails that I put in my spam folder (based on the user profile bein new and without information). Here's the contents:

More of Main Street, Shelbyville









More photos from my trip to Kentucky last month. Ivy and wreaths on houses, broken down railroad trestles.

Shelbyvilly, Kentucky





I have more photos that I need to shrink down in size, but these are a start. The day of my Auntie Emma's wake, I walked along Main Street, downhill from Shannon's Funeral Home. You know me and my train tracks. I'll post more photos soon.

The Kate Bolduan Experiment







Aside from the last two, these are photos I took with my old Walgreens digital off of CNN. Out of curiosity, I want to see if this link shows up on Google soon and also, if it pops up when I type my name in. I've had the strangest blog entries pop up in Google Images.
