as the last entry
in my 2015 project that I called my “360” project (a play on the evergreen 365 project in which a photographer commits to creating one photograph every single day for a year – I committed more leniently to simply open my eyes to the full 360 degrees of vision, to see and shoot more) I have a little bit of nothing. Literally, we’d visited a museum, and my friend needed to move her car before we went to our next location. I watched the kids as they played in the courtyard area created where Pennsylvania Avenue is now barricaded from traffic, until my friend came back.
Del and Vi have been friends since they were little babies. Watching them grow up together is so stinking much fun.
There’s no such thing as “killing time” with a camera in my hand. The opposite is true: I’m giving time eternal life. Moments that would have gone overlooked and lost entirely are mine – those expressions on their faces are forever. I will look at these when these kids are cranky teens, and when they’re adults, and when they have children of their own. I’ll show their kids. Unposed, undirected, unvarnished.
