Sign of the times

Wandering in Chicago

Old water tower.
This was a crazy tea bag art installation at Robin Richman.
The Chicago Theatre
Many different eras and building types are represented downtown.

Pictures from Chicago

Mary looking at Robin Richman's store on Damen Avenue.

I was in Chicago visiting my friend Mary who is a great photographer. We went to Robin Richman's store on Damen Avenue which is always inspiring. The salesgirl was helpful and fashion forward and had outstanding tattoos. Saw another interesting show in the former Carson Pirie Scott Building. An entire floor was filled with old display cases...different artists took over some of them and filled them with everything from old vintage fabrics to test tubes and post-it notes... It was very cool. I love Chicago.
