Back to the Garden

Uploaded: July 22, 2005


Isolation - f/4.5, 1/1000, 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5D 105mm, ISO 200 This is one of my favorite city escapes. It is a garden by the Chicago Art Institute. It is surrounded on 2 sides by 6 lanes streets in the heart of Chicago. Noisy to say the least until you step into this garden. I wanted to convey that this was a place to escape, relax, and contemplate. I tried isolating people for the garden shot but it didn't convey the same feeling as this one did.

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
