10 - Sonia Lala Photography

Meet Sonia Lala, a Chicago photographer whose work you've probably seen in a coffee shop near you. In this exciting 10th episode, Scott and Arden celebrate hitting the double digits by chatting with one of the fabulous artists who brighten the walls of your local cafe and getting her to share the details on urban decay, silos in the city, f-stops and Chicago exploration meetups. And as if that weren't enough, we also solve the dog waste problem (hint: it involves vigilantes, tazers and DNA testing) and get the details on two gems of the city: Udupi Palace and Lincoln Karaoke.
