Friday tends to be a slower day — you're counting down till you get to leave, unless you're on summer hours that is. To pass the time, we've got some photos for you to look at, today's theme is graffiti/stencils. Rachelle of Chicagoist has a neat little section on her site called Street Writing. Craig shoots graf and stencils pretty often and here's a few from August. While the photo isn't in Chicago but the photographer is, Nick has a nice shot. One of our faves, Chris has a series of shots from a boxcar.
