One of the few shops to have a photobooths inside in Chicago, the Silver Room has gone the extra mile to make theirs fit in. The black and white photobooth is surrounded on three sides by a light wood shell, matching the decor of the rest of the shop, which sells jewelry and clothing, and features a DJ booth in the opposite corner.

The photos come out with good contrast and clean borders, except for the right side of the image, which is mysteriously misshapen. Some chemical residue covered my face on a few of the images, as well. If anyone is curious, I'm attempting the opening drum riff from Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks," per the orders of my friend Brent, with whom I was on the phone at the time and who supplied me with inspiration for each of the four poses.

UPDATE 7/3/13: Ernesto reports that the Silver Room is under renovation and the booth has been removed.
