Grant Park Conservancy

posted by tucker

Well, I got my wish regarding storminess and cloudiness and general light awesomeness. Rick Jones, a friend and talented architect, asked me to come take some shots of some areas in Grant Park that he has both worked on and is looking to improve upon. I showed up at 7:30, right as the light was getting great and shot for 2 hours, really getting a feel for the place. These, the longest days of the year, never cease to amaze me; it was 9:00 and we still had great light! The sun finally set around 9:45 and we had to call it quits. The storms of yesterday carried over to today in the form of, yes, awesome clouds. I shot tons and tons there, and have only processed a small amount, and only explored a tiny amount of the Civil War site…. but that just means there’s a lot more HDR to do! And that’s never a bad thing.

I am standing on a Civil War mound that soldiers used to support a canon.

Some of the work Rick has done, in a newer area of the park.

One of the entrances to the park, which needs work. Gotta love the sunburst ๐Ÿ™‚
