all who wander are not lost

Highland Park

A once upon a time beautiful wood paneled lobby.

Down to the basement where we hear gushing water

Eeeeew – and the ALMOST soaker of a lifetime – I almost plunked my sneaker over that step, which has water right up to its edge as to be invisible at first glance. I saw the milk crates and sussed out the water level before stepping right into that. It was cold that day too.

Elsewhere throughout the building we found a plethora of “humans nests”.

Cozy.

Mostly fisheye though this post (not going to be this way forever..lol) – Mac had asked me in earlier comments about whether or not I changed lenses while exploring, and how I kept dust out etc. Well I try not to change lenses indoors if possible because the air quality is zero. If I do it, I try to be quick which is hard with gloves etc. New camera has the “dog shake” sensor that shivers and puffs air on shut down. This has been working great. In the past I destroyed my D70 by getting debris in the shutter box.

We call this “Seagram’s Room”…..

Aha – Some rare nail polishes for Di’s collection….
They smell funky, but I saved them for you !

lmao

To be fair; a nice peely paint picture for Barb.

Courtyard between the two apartment buildings.

In the distance, the “Golden Tower of the Fisher Building”.

Why do my shoes smell funny ?
