Roll: Back-Alley Suburbia

So after writing my blog post on the Rollei 35, I got excited about the camera, and decided to take it out with me on a walk two days ago, since it was fairly nice out (for December standards).

Wilmette, the town I currently reside in, is a very nice, quiet, and safe suburb of Chicago. Everything is pretty much perfect if you're married with kids. Needless to say, it's also extremely boring. I like to photograph old, decrepit things, so there's not a lot for me to shoot here. Nevertheless, I went to explore some of the alleyways of Wilmette.  In these alleys, things are not kept flawless like they are from street view.
