Chicago's Vietnam War Memorial

I'm not certain of the story, but the memorial is not cared for well. It is supposed to be a fountain (which is covered over), but one can pass by it and several plaques on the way down from Wacker Drive and then further down to the river, near the Wabash Avenue bridge. I took quite a few shots as I'm not sure when I'll be over that way again. The last photo I took from the 34th Floor of 35 East Wacker. Very easy to get around by holding an empty FedEx envelope...

Four Sticks

I didn't realize that yesterday's post was 1,111. So I'll rectify that. Look at the photo of Eliot Ness, which comes from a Max Collins novel. Eliot Ness in 1934. Look at his goddamn watch. Son of a bitch.

Waiting On My Bus

Some of these I took after getting off the Orange Line, knowing I had a 30 minute wait on my bus. It was warmer to climb up to where passengers started their trek to the terminals in a maze of hallways. I took a few shots using my 4x zoom and you can compare with the next two how crazy our weather is, totally clear the next day. The last shot matches with the first two, only the bus is stopped at the light on 63rd. The plane came out of the clouds and frankly scared the shit out of me.
