Black and white Fridays

Grill and bar at Wrigley Field in the 1930s (image)
With baseball in full swing by now, I stumbled across this photo of Wrigley Field from 1938, in honor of 100 years of Wrigley Field.

Black and white Fridays

Last week I posted an old photo of my gram, and this week I have another. This time with my grandpa on their wedding day. I can’t help but think how rad it would have been there on that day (the fact that I didn’t yet exist notwithstanding).

One of my most favorite photos. Ever. My grandma lounging at the pool. Black and white photos just make everything look so much more glamorous.

Black and white Fridays

Last week I introduced the first black and white photo in my new series. I’ve had so much fun scouring the Internet looking for such vintage photos and I hope you’re just as excited to take a peek:) Happy Friday!

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.

Where I’ve been. Part 2.

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.

We also traveled back to Madison for a weekend for a college graduation and despite the traffic, Chick was loving the joy ride.

And can you believe that just one week ago, Chick celebrated one year with us? Time sure does fly.

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.

And one more photo of Chick because she looks like a model. Well, a model pup. :)
