    What an intersting way to document your neighborhood! These are the rough spots we tend to walk by in a rush. I'll have to slow down and attempt to notice the beauty of the different textures of my town! thanks.

    So nice, quite a collection of different textures and styles. I particularly love the second image, the vines creeping straight up against a brick wall…lovely.

    I've only passed through Chicago once on our gypsy journey from Vancouver, B.C. to Pageland, S.C. so we didn't get to enjoy. Really great surfaces! xo
