where i stand sunday

The spring thunderstorm growled firmly through the night. My sleep drunk mind vaguely touched on the tents of the fair waiting for me the next morning, wondering how they could possibly be strong enough to withstand the winds slapping against everything. Two steps out of the alley the following morning found a victim. Scattered flowers clung to the wet pavement and I paused, wondering at the transformation that can occur in the blink of a storm.

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.)
