I decided to start interjecting a new kind of post into my blog, hopefully on a fairly regular basis. Inspired by Brandon Stanton and his blog, Humans of New York, I decided to start walking around Chicago (I plan to do it anywhere else I may travel as well) and talk to some of the people I come across. If they are willing, I'll share a little about them and what they have to say. If they aren't I might just put their picture up...or not. The working title for these posts is "The People You Meet." The title may change down the road. On some of my walks around the city I bring our french bulldog Butterball with me. (You can follow Butterball on Instagram - Butterball_the_Frenchie - I know he would appreciate it!) He makes a great icebreaker. I've already met so many Chicagoans. It's pretty remarkable the little glimpses into peoples' lives you can get, however brief they might be, if you just stop, say hello and ask a question or two. Let me know what you think about these posts. As a photog I always like to hear feedback. Hope you enjoy.
"How long have you lived in Chicago?"
"For one year."
"Where did you live before Chicago?"
"I lived in New York, I was a Sushi Chef there too."
