Where I Stand Sunday

She reaches out to me, pushing against the pages of the book, searching for a view of her own hand. Each day that passes by she becomes more real, a friend that is always with me. I can feel the wind against her face as she lingers at the end of her dock, contemplating the things in the river. The only obstacles standing between her and the world are my fingers against the keyboard, searching for the right way to give her voice.

Where I Stand is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places I spend my life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. The ground we tread on has its own stories to tell. (The project is now in Year Three. Year Three will feature artwork inspired by that week's Where I Stand photo as well as the photo that inspired it. Year One and Year Two can be found here.)
