Oh, how we love this photo by ten-nine. Great black and white tones, interesting textures, a nice dose of urban grit, and an interesting angle make for an alluring photograph. It also reminds us of one of the downsides of city life — the rather frequent need to find a decent apartment.

We're always a bit intrigued to know where people live, and why they chose to live there. So, dear readers, spill the beans. What 'hood do you call home, and why? If money weren't an issue, would you live elsewhere?

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".
