I've been thinking about the practice of observing my surroundings over time. In Banff I've been doing this by documenting my regular walks around town: to work, to the studio, etc. When I was at Hollyhock this spring, one of the things I decided to do was take one picture a day out the window of my bedroom. I had an amazing view of the ocean and I spent a lot of time just looking out that window. In any case, I felt it was an interesting study to see how the landscape changed from day to day. I tried to set up roughly the same view each time I took a picture. I'm interested in the relationships built with places through the ritual of continued visitation. Meditations on place.
