This is a French made Pontiac Bloc Metal 41- they named it after the American car company to sound cool. It's a 6x9 120 or 620B film camera. Made between 1941 and 1950 you can read more about it here http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Bloc_M%C3%A9tal_41

There are a lot of things I didn;t like about Chicago (there were many things I did like) but one thing can be sure- Chicago sure is a photographable city. 
This is the Blue line just before it goes under ground to the Milwaukee and Division stop.

"So much America it' getting to me"

This guys name is Francis - he's a drummer in a band called White Mystery

This was at some crazy Warehouse show or another in Chicago- The undergrond scene used to be insanely awesome. Then, John yingling left and the scene had no one to preform for.

I'm like...way behind yo- does this even count then? 

I once set up this weird photobooth at an art show in an underground warehouse scene in Chicago. 
It was incredibly cool.
I don;t remember a lot- but I do know the back ground art was by SickFisher

My travels often take me to strange and unique places. 
This one is called the St. Mary's Honor Center. 
When we went it still had stairs and access to all levels but the 4th floor- which had been chained off at all stair wells with padlocks through the wall and around the metal door frame. very creepy. 
Since I know that the stairs have been removed by scrapers and access to up levels is only gained by climbing the fire escape outside the building - next to the interstate. 
- I have several amazing images from this visit. You'll see...
