Shouldn't he be walking on the water?

Like I said in a previous post, watching the people on the lakefront trail in Chicago is entertainment in and of itself. I wasn't there long enough to see Elvis go by, but I did get to see Jesus. I never realized that he had such a small, uh, cross.

Jesus schlepped.

I also noticed his stylish work boots and Jesus jeans. This was a hot summer day. Christ, he must have been suffering under all that. But hey, that's his shtick, isn't it? Lordy.

This is the seventh in a brief series of photos that I took while visiting Chicago in June 1996. They're 35mm color slides that I've scanned and digitized.

  1. It's not the size of the cross, it's how you use it! Don't be such a size-queen.

    It's not the size of the boat but the motion of the ocean.............

  6. Hysterical post. From the picture to the jesus jeans to the schlepping.

    And to add to all the other comments "It's not the size of the wand, it's its magic."

  7. Walt, I think you really nailed it. Boots, jeans? It must be Elvis disguised as Jesus.

  9. That cross doesn't look too much of a burden to carry!

  10. Is he wearing glasses?
    He had other options if the heat was unbearable - with the long robe ...............................
