On April 4th & 5th I went on a class field trip with Eastern Michigan University. We went to the Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Contemporary Art, and visited galleries in the West Loop neighborhood. During these times I hung out with some very cool people and made some new friends.
I brought my camera, of course, and took pictures. Chicago gave me new inspiration for still images and timelapse photography as well.
When we boarded the bus with everyone (50 or so students and four teachers) I noticed that I could see drivers passing us very clearly. The bus sat so high up and offered me a new perspective. Below are a few selections for a new series called “Drivers.”
Moving right along through Gary, Indiana I shot some beautiful cityscapes of their factories and power facilities.
The entire journey only took about 4 hours.
It was an overcast say driving to Chicago but I still found it beautiful and took the opportunity to get some moody shots while getting into the area.
After getting off the bus we went to our first stop, the Art Institute of Chicago. The best part about this trip for me was that this was all new. The artwork was spectacular and it grounded me and got my creative juices going. We spent a good three hours walking around the museum and I spent most of that with my friends from class Breanne and Kathy and some new people from the bus Jarred and Megan.
Leaving the museum earlier than I needed to I decided to do some timelapse shots, much of what can be seen below.
The next day was much sunnier outside, leaving me to take much more cheerful images and explore! We also spent a good portion of the day exploring the Museum of Contemporary Art.
