Speaking of pretty pictures, I'm in love with this photo series by Chicago photographer, Paul Octavious – Same Hill, Different Day. For two years Paul visited "the hill" and took pictures of its happenings. Seems simple, and yet there's something so wonderful in finding the beauty in a hill and its community. Is it just me, or do you get the feeling that these people are happy? At least for that moment... especially on kite flying day.
Each time I have come to the hill a new story is told to me as if the hill is my stage and the locals are the actors in this daily play. -Paul
