This city in the summer is a fickle beast. My levels of motivation and inspiration have been ebbing and flowing with the passing of the days and the fluctuations of the temperature. With what free time I’ve had this summer, I’ve taken to walking. Crisscrossing my way through neighborhoods I had never visited before, I find it remarkable how much I can see in a day, how much things can influence me without even realizing it. This season has left me perplexed in so many ways, and a lot of that has to do with a sort of sensory overload. The many hours I’ve had to kill I’ve spent taking in the city and trying to make sense of everything. Running into familiar faces and wandering in and out of random places constantly shifts my perspective. It’s all left me simultaneously inspired and thoroughly confused, so I decided a couple weeks ago that it was high time I started taking photos. I’ve always known that writing has been what I’m most interested in, but in a day I see so much that it’s became necessary to record these snapshots. These are a series of photographs from the past few weeks of my life, brief moments in time of who and what I see in a day.
