The University of Chicago from atop the  Logan Center for the Arts - panorama

University of Chicago Instameet

I spent a lot of time at the University of Chicago Medical Center the past few years visiting my parents as they both went through cancer treatments. And every time I snaked through campus to get to the hospital, I told myself one day I’d go out and explore the wealth of architecture packed within the university’s property.

So when I saw the University of Chicago was hosting an Instameet as a part of Instagram’s World Wide Instameet 13 (#WWIM13) I finally took advantage and spent some time exploring the campus. I feel like I just scratched the surface, and there’s so much more to shoot. Instead of a bunch of words, here are a bunch of photos…
