Same hill, different day

For two years, Chicago photographer Paul Octavious visited the same hill and took photos. "Each time, a new story is told, as if the hill is my stage and the locals are the actors in this daily play," he says. Awesome. (I'd want to go on the kite-flying day.)

What an amazing concept! It's so true, every street and every life tell different stories - depends on the seasons, where you're at and the time you're in it....

Turbo said...

Jocy said...

This is really lovely ... different seasons, different cycles in life. You see the passage of time very clearly in these shots.

really cool idea. i would also go for the kite-flying :)

Jen Pecorella said...

I play flag football next to this hill with my friends! How cool!

Reginasaurus said...

That's a really cool concept. It's kind of like Monet, who painted the same cathedral several times in different light. I especially like the middle photograph; the colors he achieved are lovely. xo

Melissa Blake said...

Ohhh, I love the fireworks!! So awesome!

Emom said...

Splendid! thank you! smiles.

love the purple fireworks!

craftysunday said...

i believe i know that hill! (laugh) there's something magical about the lighting in that park...i think it's because it's near the harbor and lake michigan makes it magical.

thanks for sharing this project. it really made me miss home (in a good way).

cheers,
mindi

I love it. What a great idea.

pkjb said...

So odd that you post about it on the same day I discovered Kristomatic!! ck :) x

Alison Fay said...

What a cool idea- kind of a modern take on Monet's painting the same scene at different times of the day to capture all the different elements you see depending on the light. I would have loved to go to that fireworks display:)

hip hip gin gin said...

Love it! Those fireworks make me think of summer.

Michelle said...

I know you are getting tons of mama-to-be tips. Here's mine: Keep a kite and a picnic blanket in your car (or your bike basket)at all times! You won't regret it!

I love the concept of photographing the same spot at different times! Fantastic!

Ashley Yazzie said...

Beautiful. Isn't that the truth? On any given day, one corner of the earth can tell any sort of story imaginable.

Jeannie said...

these pics are really sweet!

sorry to change the subject but i wanted to ask you if you noticed that the empty space at chelsea market is finally becoming something, ... an anthropologie store??
As beautiful as their stores are I was really disappointed. Personally I would love something 'real' for the neighborhood and to enhance the awesomeness that is chelsea market. perhaps a classic style diner, a stationary store, a large sit down cafe - anything that could bring personality to a neighborhood that now leans more towards mall than manhattan. unfortunately i'm sure the only company that could afford that space was something like the urban outfitters inc.
anyway - i was wondering about your thoughts on it..

Dancing Branflake said...

I love anthropologic photographers. This series speaks to me.

Mary Martha said...

Thanks for the link!

Growing up a friend lived very near that hill and as kids we always called that 'kite hill'. It was where we flew kites in the spring and fall, went sledding in the winter and lay and watched clouds roll by in the summer.

This photographer really captured the magic of that place.

ampersandity said...

this is amazing!!! only works in places where the seasons actually change though (ie. not southern california).

dani kreeft said...

ooh, i'd love to try this.
the kites look so whimsical...
thanks jo!

SammyJ said...

These are visually stunning. I have recently gotten very into photography and these are great inspiration!

swissmiss♥lotti said...

Made me think of the lovely Mary Poppins song, "Let's go fly a kite, up to the highest height, let's go fly a kite, and send it soaring..."

Dyche Designs said...

What a really neat idea, love the fireworks. It's like a record of time.

Choose a pattern for your agate earring.You can just grab random agate beads and have an entirely random pattern if you like, but most necklaces are made based on a predetermined pattern. Even if you use a random pattern, your agate pendant will look more professional and finished if you place small spacer or seed beads between the agate beads.One common and simple pattern is: three agate beads, one accent bead, three agate beads, repeated throughout the whole necklace, with small spacer beads between every agate and accent bead.
