Open House Chicago

You really, really want to devote as much time as possible to visiting as many places as possible during Open House Chicago, October 15-16. Check out the roster of “200 cool places” at http://openhousechicago.org/sites/

Plan your days by location, history, architecture, culture, interior decor, exclusivity of access, or whatever. Our recommendation to many folks we know is Sedgwick Studio (“Enter through alley, use red door”). These are pictures from last year at that location (as ever, click on pix to enlarge ’em).

Hahahahahaha (Jajajajajajaja)!

“One of the arguments against digital is that you can shoot and shoot and shoot like crazy without being discerning. I agree with that—it is a problem. Do you know what I do to overcome that? I only use 4GB memory cards, because I don’t want to edit. Listen, editing is a pain in the ass. You don’t want to edit 3,000 images. On a 4GB card, you’ll get about 100 shots, which is the equivalent of three rolls of film. That’s a great way to make you more discerning.”

W. o’ W.: Walter Whitman

This translates so easily to photography!

“It is a good plan for every young man or woman having literary aspirations to carry a pencil and a piece of paper and constantly jot down striking events in daily life. They thus acquire a vast fund of information. One of the best things you know is habit. Again, the best of reading is not so much in the information it conveys as the thoughts it suggests. Remember this above all. There is no royal road to learning.”
