Take Time To Look Back

Here's another negative from the 2001 box that I never utilized. Before digital, I would walk around a space with a small 35mm camera (Rollei 35, Olympus XA or ??) and kinda survey a scene before I broke out the big camera to make photographs. Not that the images I was making weren't photographs, but I used the act of scanning as a sketching tool which allowed me to get a real feel for the space and scene.

Looking back, now, with different eyes I have an appreciation for the compositions long after the fact. I dare say that these vaulted images are gonna give me a new body of work that I have been holding for far too long.
