Photographer Paul Octavious is having a love affair… with a hill. Returning to the same spot in a Chicago park to capture kite festivals, outdoor movies, sledding, and the Ghana World Cup team practicing on a foggy day. The video at the end may even be sweet enough to make you nostalgic for winter.
Joyland, The Abandoned Amusement Park
