while this is a captivating scene to see at night, with red lights blinking seemingly mid-air in sync, i find it moving and somewhat majestic during daylight. drive from indy to chicago sometime and check it out.
every year, it seems like february teases us with a week of warm weather. and though i know it will snow again, it still gives me hope for spring. during the 40 degree warmth last week, michelle and i went wandering and shooting. it’s always nice to explore with another photographer. and it’s intriguing to see our unique point of views. check out her’s here.
two summers ago i participated in this gypsy wagon parade. ’twas a splendid event. do you recognize the spirit of freedom, love, and simplicity from this post i made in september? yep, same lovely people. and again i fall in love with grand rapidians who are claiming that such beauty and hope is possible in the world.
when i lived in france i started an art piece where i created polaroid looking images and taped them around the city. when i moved back it continued… becoming a part of my thesis work and daily life. the work revolves around hope and finding it in our everyday life. what gives you hope?
unfortunately i lost momentum and the project fell by the wayside. alas, i am in a terrible winter funk and i need something hopeful and adventurous. it only makes sense to start again!
check out the project at polaroidcommunity.blogspot.com/ and hopefully it will be in full swing soon!
