Funky photography in Wicker Park
Technological advances aren't always everything they're cracked up to be (remember when they caused Marty McFly to make out with his own mom?), which could explain the popularity of Lomography, a global, digital-eschewing movement spawned by some students in Vienna who found an old Russian analog camera and started to make sweet photographic music with it, eventually growing big enough to warrant this shiny new retail shop in Chicago
Walk in past the giant photo installation composed entirely of analog shots taken around Chi, and you'll see shelf-upon-shelf of funky, specialized, film-friendly cameras, from 360-degree spinners that take panoramic shots via a ripcord, to hand-crank models capable of shooting artsy videos, to candy-colored numbers called Sprocket Rockets, which thankfully have nothing to do with Mike Myers' pen15. Much like your fish tank, they also produce their own film, including hard-to-find 110 that goes into a line of adorably tiny, easy-to-hide fisheye cameras
Speaking of film, they'll soon have their lab up-and-running to develop your pics, though if you start disappearing from them, be careful, as you may have accidentally gone back in time and drawn the eye of your surprisingly hot and morally casual mom.
