Friday we went to the Chicago Cultural Center to see the Vivian Maier exhibit. Her photographs blew me away! Plus the whole story is quite incredible. If you ever haunt flea markets, antique stores or scan auction flyers, you probably have the heartbeat of a treasure hunter. This story pulses with the rapid thump of discovery. When the scope of this treasure become apparent to John Maloof, his heart must have been trip hammering. I’m sure too, that as he had each new roll of film developed it was like a treasure hunt within a treasure hunt.
After that we met Rachel for lunch and conversation. So fun to get GIRL time (no offense male species of my household)! Then on to the Bean for photos. Got some great technical camera coaching from Rachel as well. It had to do with the viewfinder and the little scrolly dial – now that is true tech talk – scrolly dial.
