My neighborhood is boring. Well, maybe not, but for the purpose of this challenge it is. So I have instead chosen to use my adoptive neighborhood. The south side of Chicago, or more specifically, Beverly. Because today was Parade Day.
The South Side Irish Parade.
The parade runs south down Western Avenue, and even on an overcast day like today, it draws a good crowd.
But the best part of the crowd are the families. The people of the neighborhood.
And the kids.
The kids in the parade.
And the kids watching.
A true neighborhood parade.
Celebrating the south side Irish heritage.
Welcome to our neighborhood.
And to our parade.
All photos were taken with my hTC phone.

I wanted to test the phone app, and see how easy it is to post a picture from my phone. I tried posting something from Ireland with a Samsung Galaxy, but I didn’t have much success. So here is a test from my phone.
Yep, that’s Goober. For people who just can’t be bothered to take the time to spread both the peanut butter and the jelly. It is on sale at our local Food 4 Less. Two jars for $5.00. Ok, the test is officially over.
Yesterday I took a walk around downtown Chicago, and without even looking at what the weekly challenge was, I surprisingly took some photos that perfectly fit this weeks theme.
One of the most photographed spots in the city is the giant reflective sculpture located in Millenium Park. The official name of this enormous, oddly shaped mirror is Cloud Gate, but the press and the local citizens have dubbed it, The Bean.
But the “details” of The Bean have nothing to do with the sculpture at all. The details are in the city that surrounds it.
The details are Chicago.
