It looks like someone had a little fun with their water meters... I just realized when resizing the photo that the other three meters have faces drawn on them!

Through the Keyhole

I came across these amazing doors while wandering down an alley in my neighborhood today. I loved the colours they were painted but was sad to see that all the hardware had already been stripped away.

Owl Mania?

I'm really wondering what the story is behind these owl 'sculptures'... I've seen them in a myriad of locations, from a Venice Beach house to a gas station in South Los Angeles. This one was glimpsed through a fence by my classmate Tricia when we were taking photos in her neighborhood (Bucktown).

My conjecture is that these were really big in the '70s and they're just left over from that time? Perhaps they're the more mysterious cousin of the lawn gnome?

Autumn has arrived in Chicago...

Well it's actually still hovering around 70 degrees here but the crunchy leaves are slowing emerging...
