Same Hill, Different Day

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine was spent packing and and shopping strategizing for making room for the little miss who will be arriving in June. I also took some time to catch up on some blogs and came across the work of Paul Octavious on one of my favorite blogs, A Cup of Joe.

Photographer Paul Octavious visited the same hill for two years and recorded each of his visits with his camera for his Same Hill, Different Day project. On his website he says: "For the past 2 years I have visited a beautiful mound of earth that I have come to call "the hill." Each time I have come to the hill a new story is told to me as if the hill is my stage and the locals are the actors in this daily play." How awesome is that?
