31 Days of A Sense of Place :: Day 17 ~ Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn

A sense of place(2)Welcome to Day 17 of 31 Days of A Sense of Place.

*

For a year, I took a photo from the same place every day (unless I was away from home), looking out my back door. It’s an interesting way to get to know a place and how it changes, seasonally, day to day (especially, here, in April!), throughout the day, as sun and shadows dance across, rain and snow fall. I’d love to do it on a pond or a waterway nearby, though once a day would be too demanding; perhaps once a week would work.

Here’s a small section of my backyard throughout that year, in chronological order from 7 Oct 2013 to 22 Oct 2014 about a photo a week; shadows change because although I tried to take the photos about the same time in the morning, sometimes I couldn’t or I forgot to. (mouse over photos for date caption)

I really encourage this exercise in continuity and awareness.

Thanks for checking in. Be sure to see what the other 31 Dayers are writing about.

a sense of place(1)This project is a bit like Wallace Stevens’ poem Thirteen Ways of Looking At A Blackbird, in that I’m writing about a sense of place from vantage points that may not obviously connect with each other. I’m not going to attempt to tie them together. In the end, these 31 days of looking at a sense of place may overlap, contradict, form a whole, or collapse like a flan in a cupboard, as Eddie Izzard would say. That remains to be seen. Thanks for stopping by.
