This is another series I’m working on, Codes. I like the way the landscape is inscribed—by nature and people—in ways we tend to overlook in our daily comings and goings. At least I often do. Taking pictures of these patterns is, for me, about paying closer attention—or a different kind of attention—to my surroundings. Historian and photographer John Stilgoe explores and celebrates this mindfulness of the everyday in his wonderful book Outside Lies Magic, which I strongly recommend for anyone who likes taking pictures.
