I walked to work listening to musicOddly enough I forgot to take photos of all the interesting or photogenic things, yesterday, for the Day in the Life project. I didn’t photograph hitting the alarm clock, dragging myself out of bed, showing the guy who came to assess the worth of my apartment around, working, buying the Playstation 2 (yay! It’s from “Santa” to me and my daughter!) or the deep emotional conversation with a girlfriend, you know, the real stuff. It was interesting seeing how many photos I didn’t take. I had imagined the photos would make a narrative of my day, but it turned out pretty cryptic.

The photos I actually took are in my Winter Solstice photoset. I really like skimming through everyone else’s thumbnail photos and narratives of their days. All these people. Everywhere.

I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
