Tag Archives: black and white
I’ve said over and over (and over) how much I love old black and white photos. I just can’t get enough. Even though we live in an information age, the fact that I work in a digital field and am dependent on my iPhone, and not to mention this here blog (a product of the so-called digital age), I still sometimes think I was meant to live in a different era. So in that vein, every Friday I’d love to share some of my favorite black and white photos I’ve found.
Over the past few weeks, my mom was out of town several times, which meant Chick and my childhood pup, Ginger, got to spend some time together. Oh, and I learned what’s it like to commute into the city from the suburbs via the train every day. It is tiring, let me tell you. I also learned that Metra, unlike the CTA, runs on time, and once you miss one train, the next one won’t come riding up in a few short minutes.
I also celebrated Mother’s Day with my mom with an outing to Birchwood Kitchen, a great neighborhood joint, and to the Chicago History Museum where I completely fell for Vivian Maier’s black and white photos of Chicago during the 1960s.
