Inspiration: I am back. Back into my camera, that is. Well, kind of. Because even I can't judge for how long this feeling will last anymore. We've been best friends for years, my camera and me . . . but friends fall out sometimes. One develops other interests while the other lies on the couch in the back room waiting to be charged and taken out on the town. Then one of us has to beg for forgiveness for severely neglecting the other. Thank goodness my camera is the forgiving sort. So we went out together a couple of weeks ago and came upon this piece of prose by Joan Didion drawn in chalk on the concrete grounds of Washington Square Park. And then another familiar feeling came back. One that reminded me of why I love this city how it always inspires a photograph. And of how cool it is to capture ephemeral moments like this one before they disappear with the next rainfall.
