Lack of posts explained...

City of Chicago water main construction on the 1900 block of North Damen Avenue from September - Christmas not only destroys business but also has a negative impact on *clicks* and posts on POPTPOMD.

Not the dark, nor cold, nor snow, nor Damen Avenue street construction slowed down this iphone-photog from *clicking* away at Homer.

After a day of jackhammering and heavy equipment outside, Homer was not in the mood to pose.
If you are responsible for the photo (I think you saw the flash of my camera go off); please send it to us here. We would love to see how your *clicks* developed.

Photos of People Taking Photos of My Dog has been even known to draw some crowds...
We have a feeling this fan of Homer's will be submitting her photos to the blog.
We look forward to receiving them and adding them to the post. You can send them by clicking here.

I have missed dozens of *clicks* at 360SEE in the last few weeks as the result of a desk location not conducive to POPTPOMD.
Three weeks of street construction didn't help either...
Now with the opening of "Doorbusters" and "Big Time" large paintings by Chris Crites on, Black Friday, 11.26.10 -- my desk is once again located in a prime spot. Look for more photos to come before it gets too cold.

360SEE has been known to be a tourist destination - especially for those interested in art and sustainable design. People have come from near and far to see our premier sustainably curated media choice gallery. The gallery even has its own page on the City of Chicago's 'Explore Chicago' website.

However, we do not receive many tourists just seeking out Homer and the home of Photos Of People Taking Photos of My Dog.
I think Kelly is our second POPTPOMD tourist to date...

Kelly hails from NY where she has her own french bulldog. She told us she had to stop and meet Homer on her trip to visit a friend in Chicago.

Thanks for stopping by and taking part in the POPTPOMD experience. We look forward to you sending us your *clicks* of Homer.
You can email us here.
Thanks for submitting your photo. Great shots Kelly.
Kelly also submitted a photo of her Frenchie Otis.

Just seconds too late but we did catch her covering up her phone post *click*
We're going to count it #0130.

They saw me photographing them so maybe they will checkout the blog and email us their photos of Homer.

Don't let street construction slow *clicks* down

The sidewalks are open, side street parking is ample, and in honor of the construction 360SEE is celebrating 'Bucktown Clean Water Appreciation Event' with big savings of 15%+...

Translation of Russian Article in F5 Magazine

Since May I have been looking for someone to help me with a translation of the article in Russian Magazine, F5, about our blog, PhotosOfPeopleTakingPhotosOfMyDog, and 360SEE.

I was introduced to Gary by friends of mine and admirers of Homer.
He is fluent in Russian and was kind enough to translate the article for me.
You can read the translation here underneath the original post.

After reading the translation the piece turned out to be more fiction than fact... but was pretty fun nonetheless.
Thanks Gary!

Why is the guy in the Phillies cap carrying pots and pans down the street?
Regardless... I was impressed that he was able to carry that large culinary load and tap on the glass to get Homer's attention for the photo. (I guess we need a larger "Please Don't Tap on the Glass Sign")
Hey Phillies fan and friend: if you are aware of the blog and send us your pictures of Homer let us know what the pots and pans were for too.

#0127 - 09.25.10

I thought I had missed yet another photo of someone taking photos of my dog when a young woman (out of frame) *clicked* a photo of Homer.
But when her friends pulled out their cameras too I was able to catch the elusive *double click*...
If you send us your photos ladies we will be sure to add them to your post.

#0125 - 09.19.10 - PHOTO SUBMISSION

These friends stopped in 360SEE this morning to see Homer and wander through the gallery's new show.

On their way out Homer's photo was *clicked*
I think the friends noticed the sign for the blog and I hope they will submit their photos of Homer.

Adrea sent the photos she *clicked* of Homer. Thanks for taking part.

A day of missed opportunities - at least 3 missed *clicks*
Sometimes 360SEE gets in the way of the blog.

Not the best lit photo -- but at least we got it!

#0123 - 09.13.10

The man in the hat seemed to *click* the blog's sign and our Spuds lamp before Homer came out to great him at the window...
I hope he checks the blog, sees his post, and submits his pics of Homer to PicsOfHomer@360SEEgallery.com.

Even before most other businesses on Damen Avenue are open for the morning we start off the Labor Day Weekend with a *click*...

A beautiful day in Bucktown...
We hope this strapping gentleman submits his photos to be added to the post!

Ryan emailed us with a number of photos and even got artsy with some black and white shots.

Thanks for your photos Ryan.

I caught this woman and her friends checking out Homer and about to *click* his portrait.
I reached for my camera and turned it on to find that it prompting me to recharge the battery.

So just like many of our subjects I reached for my Blackberry.

Find below our first PoPTPoMD post captured via smartphone.

The woman's friend also snapped a photo with his iPhone but the shutter speed and screen reload time was not sufficient for his capture.

Katelyn emailed us her and David's photo of Homer.
Thanks for your submission.

Even the PAWS, animal rescue volunteers, couldn't resist the charms of Homer while setting up for today's Angels with Tails Bucktown event.

I had the opportunity to chat up these young ladies after their iPhone photo shoot with Homer and look forward to adding their *clicks* to this post.

Cathyrn, the iPhone photog, sent us her *clicks* featuring Homer hanging out in our front door next to the PAWS "Angels with Tails Bucktown" animal rescue event flyer.
Thanks for your photos Cathryn

Digital SLR, ice cream on a stick, a large ice tea & PoPTPoMD... a nice little Saturday.

Not just *CLICKS* - Homer inspired portrait

Jean has visited 360SEE a few times but instead of photographing Homer through the window created a portrait of him using this online sketch program. Check out other digital portraits and illustrations by Jean here.

Thanks for the portrait Jean.

#0114 - 08.20.10 - PHOTO CAPTURE & SUBMISSION

It makes me happy to hear (and see through the wonders of google analytics) that Photos of People Taking Photos Of My Dog has fans, 'readers', and even press interest, beyond the borders of our Bucktown neighborhood, the city of Chicago, and even the country.

While the photos of Homer on PoPTPoMD are usually taken through the storefront window of 360SEE gallery -- we received what we thought was a really creative attempt to take part in the experience while far from Chicago...

I thought it was so clever that not only did I want to share the image but thought the post was worthy of its own # and not just a commentary post.
The fascination with photographing Homer continues to reach new heights.

This morning we received the following email from Singapore along with the above photo:
Hi there Owner of Homer,

I am Zeri from Singapore. I've never been to Chicago and I don't know if I ever will. I've been following the blog and hoping in the future I can come visit your shop and take a picture of Homer. But for now, I took this. Cheers! Best of luck in your endeavor!
Thanks for your creativity and interest Zeri. We hope to have you in Chicago one day.
-Homer & Jordan

This passerby couple came upon Homer and as the woman took out her iPhone the man pointed out the sign announcing the blog.
They didn't seem to look up at me so I am not sure that they realized they were being photographed.
I hope they logon to the blog and send us their *CLICKS*

We got an email today attached with the below photo from Diana identifying herself and Jared (a dog walker) as the subjects of this post.

Well not exactly... Diana submitted her photo of Homer but did not say which post was hers.

I sleuthed it... the combination of the female photog with a male onlooker, the reflection of the shirt in the window matching that of the photographer in my above photos, and the fact that her email was "Sent from my iPhone" makes me pretty confident.

Diana let me know if this post isn't yours. Otherwise thanks for the photo - courtesy of Diana. (confirmed)
