Chicago, February 6th, 2009. Drew is the brother of a former friend/acquaintance of mine. I forget the details of how we ended up hanging out for a day in Chicago, but we had started out downtown in the late afternoon and eventually made our way up to North Avenue beach before we headed back south and parted ways. I never saw him again. Looking back I wished in those days I was less obsessed with oddball lenses (I was tilt-shift and fisheye OBSESSED), and more just actually nailing focus and understanding exposure. I still enjoy these images though, and I recently re-edited them with a bit more of film-ish treatment to make them match the nostalgia that I feel for them looking back.
