Chouteau Bottoms

Mid-December, Brad and I headed to where the road and the river collide.  After a shot of espresso we didn't even feel the cold.  These are the photos that documented that morning.

Photo Friday || Kuma's Corner

Kuma's Corner was the meeting place when I returned to Chicago a week and a half ago.  It could have been the metal blasting over the speakers that seemed to have gotten louder as the night went on; or the multiple brews that were consumed; or the great hamburgers–named after various death metal groups–that they serve up; or maybe, it was just the great friends that I was there with, but which ever the case, it was one of my more memorable nights that I have had in Chicago.  These are some of the photos from the evening.

Josh and I arrived about 6:30 and there was already an hour and a half wait–minimum.  The door girl jotted our names down and we settled in at the bar.  The place was packed already, but we were able to be inside.  A couple of 3 Floyds later, we were talking to others that were waiting.  Our party started to arrive, the music got louder and another round was ordered.

We were seated around 8 and began to peruse the menu.  The burgers were called names like "Iron Maiden," "Black Sabbath" and "Slayer".  I ordered the "mastadon" which came with cheddar, bacon, frizzled onions and BBQ sauce.  And another round.

Our food came out.  The waitress brought us a free beer because we seemed like "a fun group."  And as the music increased in volume once again, so did we.

A couple of weeks ago, Micall and I headed out west to Seattle. I met her family and we had a great time tasting wine, watching the Mariners, going to Mars Hill and getting overwhelmed at the Market. A great time.

The second shot is out my window in the evening while I was reading. The light was really nice in the evening. The weather here in Chicago is great right now.

As many of you probably know, I went to Disney World a couple weeks ago. It was a great time to hang out with my family and my girlfriend. I took well over 1000 pictures, but cut about half of them. Here are two of them.

Many more are on Flickr and Facebook.

Last week the weather was beautiful and I walked from my apartment up to the Map Room. I took about 30 photos and kept about half of them. Pretty good for me lately.

The first is a shot of the tree that is budding outside my apartment; signs that Spring is somewhat upon us, despite the 30 degree temps. The second is from a mural at Division and Hoyne.

This past weekend I was in Disney world and shot off about 10ish gigs of photos. Somewhere around 1000+. It'll take a while to get through them all. But I'll be sure to let you know when they're done!
