Random thoughts and observations, including photographs, in the tradition of a flaneur*: a stroller, a loiterer, a dawdler on street corners, a hanger-about who rambles through a city without any apparent purpose but is highly attuned to the history of the place and is in a constant covert search of adventure, esthetic or the exotic and erotic.

* Baudelaire created the term.
Somehow the sign indicating the current interest rates for a home mortage loan are a contrast and a comment on a homeless person resting beneath the sign in the very expensive neighborhood of Lincoln Park in Chicago. This corner is a popular gathering spot for these folks, perhaps because of the ATM machine and a Walgreens and the KFC, offering low cost meals and a dumpster.
