Peripatetic

Another walk with Kodak, Bryan, and Tucker. Less of an outing that’s part of the project, and more of a walk which just happens to fit, so the camera went along for the ride.

I think in the end this may be a book of photos which seem like an accurate depiction to me, and to Kodak, but perhaps not to anyone else. I’ve been editing, but the images I’m choosing are not the ones which are knockout winners but instead the ones which seem to capture some very difficult to articulate sense of how Kodak and I take walks. Writing text may be quite frustrating experience.

    Have you tried alternate landscapes to walk in, like gravel pits, or dense forests, or something different like that?

    I don’t have a gravel pit at hand, so we haven’t tried taking a walk in one. Actually, there are gravel pits nearby, but since they have big, heavy power equipment moving gravel around in them they’re not really suitable for a pleasant walk.

    I do have dense forests, however. A truly dense forest is a problematic place to take a walk, and even more challenging for photography. In the Pacific Northwest, almost all forest has a dense understory, so just wandering around is hard to do (the usual term for such wandering would be ‘bushwhacking’). We could follow trails, I suppose.
