We quite enjoyed sneaking in places on campus for our Editorial Demo with AlienBees.

What we learned most that day was how to be extra careful with the equipment and our surroundings.

Editorial Assignment 3 – Travel

The city of wind and cold. Of history in chaos and charm. Of beauty in busy streets.

These are the streets of Chicago.

Chicago Street Scene

Note – Chicago is not just black and white. It does in fact have color. However, when I picture the city during the Progressive Era or Century of Progress (think World’s Fair), my mind chooses to imagine the city as a colorless display of architecture and character. I chose to present this series in that same manner.
