Photographer Paul Octavious has captured the life and times of one Chicago hill in his photo series 'Same Hill, Different Day.' Over the course of three years, Octavious has taken hundreds of photographs of the same hill, each one capturing a very different moment in time.
It is almost unreal to see how one hill can get so much different action. Everything from a kite-flying festival to 4th of July fireworks has occurred on this hill and will probably continue to occur for many years to come. 'Same Hill, Different Day' is great because it makes you feel like you are a part of a community, even if you live thousands of miles away.
If you have ever wondered what the secret life of the American hill holds, then you should definitely check out 'Same Hill, Different Day' from Paul Octavious.
