By now, I am sure that everyone knows that I think alleys are just a great place to look for photographic opportunities.
When I was in Chicago, walking up (I think it was “up”) Michigan Avenue (unless it was another street), I saw this fantastic scene: an alley that was below street level, that curved away from me, but toward the light.
I wanted to follow it.
It’s a shame, really, that someone’s family spent a lot of money getting a nice, big iron urn for the cemetery, and now that urn’s disintegrating – ashes to ashes and all that.
It’s just a matter of time now, until the whole thing gives way. I wonder if anyone cares….

You know that rule I have? The one about walking around back, to see what’s there?
Yeah, so I didn’t. It was cold. And windy. It was so windy that it was hard to hold the camera still enough to take a picture. But mostly it was cold.
Anyway: rules were meant to be broken.
Especially when it’s cold. And windy.
I thought this was the funniest store I’d ever seen. But I didn’t go in to see what their deal was.
It wasn’t until I was working on this post that I thought about trying to find out about it. Turns out, it’s way cool. Robot Supply & Repair supports 826Michigan, an organization that helps students learn how to be better writers. I’ll give you a minute to head over to their website to check it out.
Interesting, wasn’t it?
Anyway, now I wish I’d gone inside and bought a book or a hoodie or some coffee.
