Thank you for publishing my photos in this wonderful essay about placemaking, by (now book) author Clara Cecil.
I love the meaning attached to something that I do every day without thinking about it:
Ted, an avid photographer, decided to start taking a picture every day on the way to work to capture a physical representation of his daily commute. When Ted started looking back at each of the commute photos, what initially had seemed to be a monotonous daily routine took on a new degree of meaning.
He no longer only noticed the same static concrete sidewalks and office buildings he passed by every day. While he had thought that the urban landscape itself was the central character of the city, he recognized that the city forms the backdrop while everything else occurring in and around the city composes the foreground.
In a nutshell, it’s true, I <3 DC. Enjoy the photos.
