Dedicated to Okunola
Happy Friday! I’m closing out the first week in February with lots of good things on the horizon. Spring is definitely not right around the corner in Chicago but we’re inching closer and closer and I swear I can taste the fresh warm air if I think on it hard enough.
The word of the weekend is: shoot!
I started a photography class at the Chicago Photography Academy this week and the first assignment is to shoot 36 pictures of a Chicago block and to tell a particular story with my photos. The rules of the assignment? No deleting!
Not only am I doing homework for the first time in years but it looks like I’ll be cheating, too.
I’m really excited because I love cities and this is a neat opportunity to see how other people in the class view Chicago. I’m planning on taking pics along Division St. in Humboldt Park.
If I was in Milwaukee, I’d shoot Center St. in the Riverwest neighborhood of my youth (pictured).
If I was in New Orleans this weekend, you know where I’d be:
Bourbon St., WHO DAT?
What block in your city would you head to? What story am I telling anyways? I guess I’ll figure it out when I get there. Have a beautiful weekend!
