07.12.11 number six

07.11.11 bunny captive

-Rachel held onto this reluctant bunny for quite some time.  I guess being cute doesn't always work in your favor.

12.31.10 monadnock block

-This Chicago landmark is the tallest load bearing masonry building ever constructed.  
The main reason why they stopped building high rises out of brick is because this
