Wandering is a continuing meditation on urbanity.
I walk the city. It’s my preferred way to get around. I find other transportation too quick and it doesn’t allow me to observe the way I want to. Sometimes I may see something while riding the bus, bike or driving the car–but I rarely stop to take a photograph. More often than not I’ll see something on those trips and make my way back to the spot at a later date so I can wander around on foot.
Wandering is also about discovery. For twenty years I’ve walked and re-walked these streets, but even after all that time I can still find things that interest me. This is because the city is always changing. There are definite constants, but most of the city is in perpetual flux. I can look back over the years and I can see places I’ve photographed and most of those no longer exist the way I originally saw them.
