Layers and Obscurity


When wandering on the Pike/Pine corridor on Capitol Hill, I was drawn to the telephone poles where remnants of images and text are stapled one on top of the other.  The original message goes away but the bits and pieces suggest a history of words, of life going on, things for sale, performances being held, lost pets. Being a graphic designer, I have a passion for type and wanted to preserve these cultural layers in photographs.  The Pike/Pine corridor is a great place for “street” photography, going out and finding what you find and having no preconceived notion of what you will respond to or take a picture of. Also, it is a great place to observe people.
