just pics from work
    #1137209 - 12/13/02 01:47 AM (21 years, 4 months ago)

Hi.  I thought maybe it would be nice to post a few pics at random from my job.  I drive a cab in Chicago, illinois.  it's a big pinball game.  I get bounced around town by where my fares take me. 


I carry a camcorder so i can post these still frames.  I would put my fares up but that would fuck with their privacy.  This was a few frames from last night. :cool:

Food, liquors, cold beer and wine... munchie stop.

Pictures of ordinary things are sometimes the most interesting. I guess they're easier to relate to.

This camera pretty much sucks.  I suck at taking pictures too.  I just aim the camera out the window as I drive :grin:.  But yeah, mundane random stuff. :cool:

Hahaha.  Man that gives me an idea.  I'll go to the "real" ghetto and get some cool shots.  You'll be gigglin when you see the liquor stores down there.  Anyway, last night kinda sucked.  I wasn't feeling good and my attitude sucked and I only took a few pictures.  One of them is a drug deal.  :grin:  One of the pics won't upload for some reason.

I would like to but I don't know how cool it would be to put people's faces on the internet without explicit permission.  Doing a "drive-by" of people on the street is one thing.  I feel that's o.k. cuz you don't have a close up of someone who can be recognized.  I really do want to do what you suggest.  It would take more preparation --ie asking each individual to sign a waiver or something.  I'll consider that. :laugh:

You are correct pants.  It would be the bomb to put pics of customers up [with little stories tagged on]. I'm looking into it.  (just here taking a quick headache break)  (i am working tonight :grin:)  I really don't think it would be terrible to post pics of people's faces as long as they are aware they are being recorded.  A lot of people are exhibitionists anyway :grin:

Thanks Wharfrat.  I didn't get any cool ones last night --too busy making $$$.  But here's a few :


and this is cheating (from last week when we had a little snow and ice on the ground) :
 
I will try to get some more interesting ones. I wanna do my customers.  Maybe with a hidden camera.  I will put a sign up telling them what's going on.

I'm here in Wicker park @ Damen/Div.

WharfRat,
here's a view from the Central Ave. Bridge on the West Side.
It's mixed residential with industrial corridors along truck routes and train tracks
along this stretch for as far as the eye can see from downtown all the way into the suburbs.
Thanks for the compliment Morshum. :smile:  Just sharing a little bit of my daily routine with you.  I would like to get a good digital camera and take some serious pics.  There's so much to see!!!

to provide more of a sense of scale this is the basically the same view zoomed out a little more. That's an old General Mills cereal elevator in foreground and a guardrail and a billboard on the viaduct. It goes up maybe two or three stories (30 feet) above ground. Down below is train tracks and a police station. There's a huge lot the cops use for vehicular training exercises. edit- - Oh and Grand Avenue crosses beneath as well --thus the police area hdqtrs here was dubbed "Grand Central Station". It covers a police area which includes dozens of West Side open air drug markets (china white --more like animal tranquilizer--, and of course "rocks"--better known as crack). This would be where Smashing Pumpkin "D'arcy" was taken after she allegedly tried to cop rocks a few years ago.

What? I let my guard down cuz this kid put up a front --like he wanted to know how much to go somewhere. I rolled down the passenger window to talk to him and let him lean in a bit. He was just some punk hanging out (i should have seen it ). Then he grabs my backpack --sitting right there on the seat-- and starts jogging off. Upon refection i realized I should have killed the engine jumped out and beat his ass. He did have friends around but they probably wouldn't have jumped me --then again I am a white guy. By the way your sig is rad.

I wonder if that taco joint in that third picture (first posting) is any good; they have authentic mexicans in Chicago?

hehehehe, yeah man, i used to have more ducks, now we've got one male duck and 4 females, and one big mean bastard goose. i raised most of the ducks from babies, theyre so cute when theyre just little yellow fluffy guys :smile:



theres a pic of the goose and you can  see the female white duck in the backround, that pic is from a while ago. since then we've had to seperate the goose from the male white duck, cause the goose would try to get his love on with the female white duck, and the male white duck would attack the goose because thats his woman. and the goose would just beat the hell out of the duck, but the duck wouldnt stop comming at him. the goose completely fucked up the ducks leg, he can barely walk now :frown: he just sits in the hay or floats in one of his little pools, seems quite happy though. when we seperated them we though it would only be fair to keep the male white duck in with the female white duck, so i think hes happy.
its funny, he still tries to attack at the goose through the fence hehe.

Si, si.  I really need to learn Spanish.  Yes, you can get authentic anything (almost) here.  It's a great restaurant town.  We have a large Latino population. 
This was my favorite place for pork burritos for a long time. "El Charro" Their mole sauce was the best.  I'll put some pics up of taquerias. :cool: 
this is a homeless person's camp on a vacant lot.  They have to share with the skunks, raccoons, possums, and rats.  I saw some giant rats today.  No pics sorry.

I would prefer the country life too.  It is somewhat exciting in Chicago but it's far from healthy. I breathe exhaust fumes a lot --especially when I bike to work--but also while driving.  I'm always exposed to the public and whatever ailments they might have
--I could tell you stories. 
I haven't got any pics worth putting up lately.  I wanna capture some rats just for you Jimmy! :laugh:

Your camera DOES suck. You shold go for the nikon coolpix 990 or 995. It's the best p&s camera out there. A little killer on the batteries, but if you turn of the LCD viewfinder it's ok.
