Down the subway

Down the subway

The subway is a fascinating place to me. You can see so many different types of people. And there can be quite a few different forms of entertainment, from violin players to tap dancers to one man bands. Some people who commute on the subway everyday might not find it as interesting. I guess because where I live we don’t have a subway it seems more interesting than it might actually be.

Napoleon sleeps

Napoleon sleeps

Continuing shots of people this week. I’m pretty sure this guy was sleeping. He’s on a bench just outside the Navy Pier in Chicago. I titled it Napoleon sleeps because he reminded me of the guy from Napoleon Dynamite, which is a very funny movie. The other great thing about it is it’s not your typical Hollywood big budget junk. Plus it’s a clean movie. I think the worst word in the movie is maybe “Idiot.” And to hear Napoleon say it is quite funny.

Cloud gate

Cloud gate

Pulling out another shot from my trip to Chicago. This is of an art object called Cloud Gate. It is a giant bean shaped object made from highly polished steel plates. You can’t see the seams at all where the plates meet except for when you go underneath where they left the seams on purpose. It was pretty neat. Brandon has a cool shot of it here. There was a orchestra playing in front of it entertaining what looked like a high brow dinner party.
