I love making observations. I like to slow down and pay attention to the sound, sight, smell, and other sensescapes. Walking and photography help me engage with my senses, and attend to the surroundings in a more visceral way. Sensory awareness helps find the extraordinaryness in ordinary, mundane reality. I often look up while hiking or photographing to SENSE things differently. This image--from my recent hike on the neighborhood trail--was inspired by sensory methodology that I often draw on while hiking, walking, or observing.
