THE LAST TIME I TOOK A PICTURE OF THIS INKING ON A SIDEWALK I was using the old Motorola RAZR phone. That was back in May 2007, this pic I took within the past week close to five years later. It's faded but amazingly still there.

In that old blog post where I published that old picture there was a comment with a website (! Well it was for t-shirts that are no longer being produced however and there's very little there although you can use the e-mail addresses posted there.

WHEN I GO TO A CUBS GAME, hopefully this Goose Island brewpub will be one of my stops after the game. Before the game who knows!

SO I TOOK A PIC FROM AN L PLATFORM NEAR STATE & ROOSEVELT ON SATURDAY. Today is a picture touched up via Instagram of that L platform from the intersection of State & Roosevelt. Groovy eh?
A NIGHT TIME SHOT OF THE CHICAGO SKYLINE and in black and white. Used the setting for inkwell on instagram!
I TOOK THIS PIC OF THE BRIDGE OVER 18TH STREET on my way towards downtown one morning. Not sure why I blurred out the rest of the pic and placed the focus on the bridge.

[VIDEO] FOR SOME REASON I HAD THE RHYTHM OF THIS COMMERCIAL IN MY HEAD. This was a commercial for Good Humor ice cream that was seen in 1996. Imagine a "Good Humor man" in what I think of 1950s attire dancing to a modern dance club mix. The idea of that is iconic in my mind!

A WET DREARY DAY IN CHICAGO'S SOUTH LOOP. Snapped this shot at an L Platform overlooking State & Roosevelt and then tweaked it with Instagram. Look at all that traffic on this day!

AROUND ST. PATRICK'S DAY I TOOK THIS SHOT OF THE PICASSO in front of Daley Plaza in Chicago. Made an Instagram of it and the focus is on its face. There is a lot of debate as to what this sculpture represents.

AN INSTAGRAM OF THE FORMER CARSON, PIRIE SCOTT FLAGSHIP STORE located at State & Madison in Chicago. I took this picture at night as well.
[VIDEO] I WANT TO GET THE NEW MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE FILM SOON! It wasn't a bad movie and most movies seem to have a good score. The one thing I don't like about this movie is the beautiful Paula Patton. Her acting leaves a lot to be desired.

AN INSTAGRAM OF A FOGGY DAY ALONG THE CHICAGO RIVER! This was a week or so back and I like the look of this as everything appears to be weathered and ancient!
ANOTHER PIC TWEAKED WITH INSTAGRAM. This style is called the "Nashville" and it looks like it was developed at a photo lab doesn't it. This app is noted for its ability to tweak photos in the style of either Kodak or Polaroid.

USED INSTAGRAM FOR THE FIRST TIME TODAY. There were many settings to give images a certain visual effect. In this case I zoomed in a bit and gave it a "lo-fi" setting. The various visual settings either make this Doritos Locos Taco Supreme look either more appetizing or bland. This pic makes me want to play with Instagram some more just to see what it can do!
