Out of Chicago. Splash.

I will start this post with a confession. These pictures were not shot in square, but in 3:2 format. Take a fixed 23mm lens (35mm), unadjustable distance (because of the water), narrow background wall and lots of people and 3:2 won’t work. Too wide to have an interesting frame. I think I will remember next time, in similar conditions, to shoot square from the camera, it is much easier to compose. I kept one of the sides in some of the photos as I feel it puts everything in a context and creates a kind of connection between the children and their splash game and the city and its people / adults. These were taken in Chicago at the Crown Fountain, during a photowalk with Thomas Leuthard, who spotted the potential of this location: water + interesting wall + people, in this case mostly children, as they are the only ones free enough to run through water without caring they get wet :).
