15. Earth Measuring

Black Friday, November 27, 2020

Ten years ago, Tender Loving Stuff was launched with a YouTube channel. The Coordinates of Home blog extended from projects about Stuff to Land and has begun travelling. The first stop was the Greenwich Prime Meridian in 2018. More posts about that and other trips will follow in 2021.


14. Car Footprints Full Circle

December 7, 2018 – December 6, 2019 a full year of Car Footprint in the Snow images

Posts began with silhouettes left in snow when vehicles moved from parking spots. I started this series on January 11, 2019 but recently I found this photograph (above) from December 7, 2018 that I had forgotten. While people complained about the winter, my lenses shifted toward the mess made in pristine snow when cars drive away. I began to see it as human aggression. As I experimented with camera settings and apps, the photographs showed relationships among the bay window, a maple tree and snow. The cars and this street have been here for little over 100 years. The snow has been making an annual return for millennia.

A big tree survives and thrives in a small yard. Camera apps have transcended their navigation function to examine the care and neglect of my responsibilities to the Land.
