Detritus

Detritus-color correct

I was walking to class, already late of course, when I passed this scene on Euclid ave. Maybe it was because I'm stressed from work and school, maybe it was Bob Dylan playing on my iPod, but as I walked by I felt a deep regret that I didn't photograph it. Two blocks later, my photographic resolve got the better of my judgment and I turned around, got out my camera and walked back away from campus to shoot.

Sometimes I feel like the reason I find it hard to do my other schoolwork is because I'm just meant to take photos all day. Of course, my professors don't like hearing that, and I'm not eager to tell them.

At the same time I'm immensely happy that there is something I care about so much, something that can literally make me feel better about myself by pushing a button.
