The evolution of back pain

The evolution of back pain

A small poster advertises a survey on back pain. It’s a 3 year programme and since this was taken in 2007 it’s nearing completion now!

Taken somewhere in San Francisco.

Growing Wild in the Biosphere

Growing Wild in the Biosphere

Inside Biosphere 2, Arizona is a complete ecosystem meant to keep a group of people alive for months on end. That project ended years ago but the building remains and it’s worth a visit if you’re in the area!

Just in case you didn’t see yesterday’s post, 3 hotel rooms going for free on the 25th of September if you’re going to the photowalk the following day! Just leave a comment if you can definitely go and want to be in with a chance to win.

I thought there might be a rush on this but, boy is it proving hard to give away such a good prize! I’ll just have to claim one of the rooms for myself! 🙂

Emma, a small alley somewhere in San Francisco. Shot three years ago while on a photowalk around the city.

Only 9 places left for the photowalk tomorrow. I emailed everyone today. Did you get your email?

Burning Embers

Burning Embers

The burning embers of a bonfire glow brightly in the chill Arizona night.

Taken in January 2008 when Automattic visited Arizona. Here’s another shot of that fire!

The Chicago Theatre

The Chicago Theatre on State Street in the city of the same name. The sign in front is hard to miss but I’ve never been in there. Maybe next time I visit Chicago. More info on the theatre’s history page. Love that Netscape favicon!

This was shot in 2005 but I know I have shot the same scene a number of times.

Moving from Chicago to Washington

Moving from Chicago to Washington

Barack Obama’s family probably had some help from America’s Secret Service when they moved from Chicago to Washington but for the rest of us, that journey would be a lot more mundane and would involve the services of a company like Hollander.

Photographed somewhere in Chicago in May 2005.

PS. Thank you if you nominated this blog for the Irish Blog Awards!

Look up at Marina City

Look up at Marina City

Marina City, the round shaped buildings in Chicago that sit on the river make an imposing sight when viewed up close. Good thing there’s valet parking, you certainly wouldn’t want to be scared of heights driving around inside them!
