So, I'm playing a little bit of catch-up here because of life's little uncertainties. I think though that I can finally get back into the blogging game.
These pics are from a week long electrical estimating class that I spent at Hamburger University in Oak Brook, IL. This is the campus and headquarters of the conglomeration known to us as McDonalds. It is a pretty surreal place. I kept tasting the water because someone told me that it was actually a river of ketchup... not true. I also kept looking for secret rooms with oompa-loompas and hamburglars, but to no avail.
Good times.

 Late once again.

Went to the Flight of the Conchords concert at, of all places 'the Arie Crown Theater' at McCormick Place. What a strange place for them to play. Whoever was doing their booking was way off. I think that may have effected their performance too. They seemed tired and drained.
I managed to snap a few pics before I was told I couldn't by security. To quote, "You can't take pictures here with that camera, it's too big"
Hmm... I think by big he meant "professional". Thats fine, let all these other f**kers shoot with their point 'n' shoots that have about the same MegaPixels as my Canon. Oh well, all in good fun.
I wonder what ever happened to Brit and Jemaine anyway...

A day late. My new home desktop with windows 7 has been a real pain in my ass. I've been having browser issues as well as Flash issues. This is why people hate PCs, I think.
Anyway, these locations are not to far from where I work. It was a patchy day with storm clouds rolling in and out. It made for some pretty great light and drama.
The last 6 were all around the same location around 167th and Harlem. I parked at the bank parking lot on the corner and ran in. I was surprised to see mowed trails all throughout because you couldn't see them from the road.
