Lost in the crowd


At the Logan Square Halloween parade this little girl seemed a bit lost in the midst of more grown ups than kids.

Checking out the literature

I cannot tell if he was a security officer or just a visitor to the synagogue but he does look comfortable hunched over and reading the literature on the table.

Nose and gear of North American Sabreliner Series 40

There are two beautiful skeletons outside the City Museum that you can actually climb into. I love the long noses on these planes, but this is what I imagine it loved doing best: climbing, into the clouds.

The chat

A couple of people stand outside Union Station having a quick conversation, even having a cigarette.

Staged sink at Glessner

In the then-modern kitchen of the Glessner House on Prairie Avenue, a sampling of food they would have prepared sits in a marble sink ready to be washed. Granted this is petrified and wax likely, but made for a wonderful still life with the natural light coming in from the kitchen.

Closeup of a jet fan blade set

I have never seen jet fan blades before. I had no idea it’s like looking inside the mouth of a shark with multiple rows. It is elegant in its complexity.

Fuel inlet for Northrop F-5

I had never seen one of these up close and I imagined them to be massive. My dad was a in-flight refueler during Vietnam and I was impressed by how it was done. Until I saw the actual inlet and imagined them being 30k feet in the air AND traveling at multiple hundreds of hour at the time, I am in awe.
