More photos! First, a rant:
ONCE AGAIN I CAN'T FIND A PHOTO SERVICE THAT ALLOWS ME TO POST A DAMN SLIDESHOW TO THIS BLOG! LAST TIME IT WAS SHUTTERFLY, NOW IT'S PHOTOBUCKET. WHY THE HELL DO THEY GIVE YOU HTML CODE TO PASTE IN, AND THEN WHEN YOU DO, IT DOESN'T WORK? I AM SO SICK OF THIS!
Or maybe I'm stupid and don't know what I'm doing. Anyway, here's a direct link since I can't post a stupid f---ing slideshow.
On a Sunday last month my friend Kurt and I checked out the newly renovated Sister Cities Park at Logan Square. They did a beautiful job with it. Then, a few days later, I went to look at the Porch at 30th Street Station, on Market Street adjacent to the train station. As it was really late in the afternoon nothing was going on, and the umbrellas at the tables were folded. But they reclaimed an area that was just a driveway and made it a pleasant place. There's a number of activities held there regularly, including live music and -- for the entire month of July -- free mini golf. I can't wait to see how they set that up!
And these pictures were taken with my new digital camera (the one I got for my birthday. Below is an example of its zoom prowess. In the first picture Kurt is circled (you can see it larger if you click on the image for the larger version). The other one is with the camera at maximum zoom.
