We're whores for typography. Somewhat embarrassingly, seeing Helvetica was a high point of the summer for us, causing much glee and wonderment. Naturally, Flickr user only-connect's latest project, an exploration of typography and fonts in signage in one of Chicago's more overlooked 'hoods, Albany Park, makes our heart go pitter-patter. Although letters are absent from the photo above, the great composition, natural geometry and the representation of the ol' 773 comes together to create a quality shot.

Focus, People, Focus is a weekly photography feature that features a photograph taken by a reader of the site. If you'd like a chance to have your photo featured on Friday as part of Focus, People, Focus, upload your photo to Flickr and tag it with "Chicagoist".
