Old Photography: It's a Chicago thing....

I moved to Chicago in 1998 to attend school for fashion design. I attended Columbia College my first semester because I had heard so many great things about that school. Don't get me wrong, it was a great school, but I didn't think their fashion program was all that great. If you want to go to school for film or photography, Columbia would be an amazing school to go to. Fashion Design was a different story.

Columbia's fashion curriculum required you to take a photography class. I'm still pretty clueless on that one, but I took that class despite my questions. Over the course of the past few weeks, I've been going through all my old photographs. I picked up some relatively inexpensive frames with prebuilt mat boards inside. I became inspired and purchased nine of these frames and added my pics to them this evening:
As you can tell, I like to take photo's of subjects such as things in nature or people. I had to develop all of these photo's in the darkroom at school and that was one thing I always struggled with. I also took this class in the fall/winter and sometimes it was difficult to get out to take pics because of the weather. I hope you enjoyed them. I hung them on my wall. Just a little momento of my life in Chicago.
