Day 2 in Chicago was the first day where I actually had to work. Kim was setting up things at the convention center in the morning and let us know when to head over to do our thing. Tony, Lowell, and I got breakfast at the hotel and then walked around the neighborhood a little bit. We scouted out the location of Garrett’s Popcorn and then looked for a mailbox that was closer than the one I had found the night before.
I wish more things in Iowa were covered with stickers.
There was supposed to be a mailbox in this building but it was closed.
I’ll do my best sidewalk sticker.
Here’s the best part. In the convention center there was a mailbox. Problem solved.
The Computer Mine Booth. Kim got a guy fired for smoking a joint while putting our booth together. Narc.
And that made us popular with the rest of the union guys.

Hooking the HDMI cables up to these monitors and then getting these monitors mounted, what dreams are made of… I meant nightmares.
The closet. Where union guys go to change pants and miners go to hide from customers.
The snack selection. Tony, Lowell, and I crushed those Slim Jims. Not sure anybody else got any.
Only slightly smelled like pot.
After we were done, we headed outside to catch an Uber.
It took us about 15 minutes to get to the convention center on the shuttle in the morning.
It took over 30 minutes to get back to the hotel.
Which sucked because we were going to a Cubs game that night and we were in a time crunch.
Our Uber ride back to the hotel.
The ride from the hotel to Wrigley Field was about 45 minutes. We got there 30 minutes after the game was supposed to start.
Which ended up being okay, because the game started an hour late.
Still plenty more pictures from Day 2 to share. Most of them from Wrigley Field.
This is your reminder that this week’s THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme is TEXTURE:
TEXTURE! What a great theme for Year 10 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE! Also, this theme was suggested by Sarah Toot.
But what in Wes Wallace is a TEXTURE image? Well, let’s start with the definition of TEXTURE: the structure, feel, and appearance of something (as a fabric) the smooth texture of silk. wood with a rough texture. In photography that means: the visual depiction of variations in the color, shape, and depth of an object’s surface. What you are trying to do here is to convey the feel of the surface of an object through photography.
This is not the first time that TEXTURE has been a theme. Here are some past submissions for TEXTURE that might get your creative juices going:
