time traveling


That old buttermilk sky in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood this May. Once a predominately Polish village, Pilsen is now gentrified, including a large Hispanic population as well as hipsters. This tall church gave me the feeling of being in another century and place.

One’s destination is never a place,
but a new way of seeing things.

Love the Henry Miller quote, but then, I usually love all your guotes! Chicago is one of my favorite towns.

Gentrification makes humble homes desirable and out of the reach of poorer folk. Love the photograph and the information.
