What you photograph, what you see

I’ve been trying to answer the tough question of “what do you do when you’re on vacation?” given that I’m starting to think about an upcoming trip, and giving my hosts ideas of what I’d want to see. It occurred to me that what I find interesting might overlap with what I tend to photograph while traveling, so I made a list of things that seem representative.

Gourmand: a story of fabric stores

One of the things I love most about working with fabric: the infinite number of designs that can be put on it! Every designer has their own take; every culture has their own style. I’ve vented a few times before about the differences between “modern design” as a movement versus “modern design” as an aesthetic. The movement is one I love, but the design aesthetic is only one of several that I adore.

Slowly, though Vermont

I’m about to head out on the road again, and thanks to a quirk of airlines, I’ll be flying into Vermont and out through Boston. I’m doing it purely so I can roadtrip through Vermont, and see what there is to see.

I have no idea what I’ll see, but I’m taking my new camera rig.

Any suggestions?

Wondering why Vermont? See this map, and it’ll make sense:

Transit

When I put yesterday’s fresh rounds of travel into TripIt, I saw a line that summed up my year:

You’ve traveled 43,660 mi to 44 locations.

I nodded, thinking to myself about the places I’ve been, the people I’ve met – or reconnected with – and felt profoundly grateful. I’ve been welcome in a lot of places over the past year, slept on a few new couches, met delightfully new recombinations of humanity. All unique, none replaceable.

This morning, while working to finish Invariant, I found myelf reflecting on the travel schedule I’ve been maintaining over the past year and the conflicting effects it’s had on my creative time. My stash has picked up fabric from Denmark, Oregon, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Colorado, Holland, and England.
