17 Dec Dawn to Dusk
It was 4 a.m. The alarm was ringing. The sky was dark and as I stumbled into semi-consciousness I pondered just why it was that I was being roused from my warm bed on a Saturday morning. Oh! That’s right… photographs. I’m going to go make photographs. Nice.
We were meeting Anne and Randy from Gary Lee Partners at the Sears Tower to start our day with a dawn shot, planning to shoot until dusk. The project was a refresh of a space they had done in the ’90’s, reusing a lot of the previous elements while reorganizing the space and updating the aesthetic. The design was classic Gary Lee, elegant but restrained, with thoughtful detailing. Sometimes finding beautiful compositions is a laborious chore, other times they just line up one behind the other waiting for you to point the camera in their direction. It was a good day.
