Fantastic as always. I especially love the one with the Edgewater and 1800 Lake buildings.

I lived immediately adjacent to Grumpy's in the '90's - A Great Bar!! During the day it was a typical blue-collar place. By early evening it was dominated by arty/intellectual types.

The Crack Stacks look a little better with the new bold colors on them, not quite so dreary as the pastel shades it used to have.

I agree skiumah Cedar Riverside does look a bit better withthe colors restored. I gotta say you photograph some of the ugliest (most most likely realistic) people. That first picture of houses, was that on Aldrich south of 32nd? or wait maybe Colfax south of 31st? I think I once knew someone that lived in that yellow house on the far right.

It is in Whittier, I don't remember the exact location but it is in the vicinity of 28th and Grand.
