In 2007 I started a photo + essay series called Where I Stand Sunday. I took pictures of my feet somewhere and wrote about what I was thinking and posted it every Sunday. The blog series lasted into 2013 and I’ve long wanted to shine a little light on it.
Of course not all of it is good. Sometimes life was status quo normal and if I didn’t go anywhere interesting the photo and text were pretty mundane. But some of them I truly love and I do miss having a regular series of this nature. I’m trying to figure out what I’d like to do but in the meantime I thought it might be nice to revisit some of the Where I Stand posts.
This photo and essay is from May 12, 2013.
My addiction to patterning fabric forces my eye towards considering the mundane everyday surface alterations that we are all accustomed to passing by. Lime yellow on a deep charcoal grey, the shine from the rain pushing the base color to different tones depending on where I stand. Random marks of circles and thin lines creating a secret message. It will be gone soon, removed by the wear of nature, as temporary as this spring season.
