Found: one raft

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” ~ Elliott Erwitt

Found: a one-man inflatable raft abandoned in the woods near Shirk’s Bayou pedestrian bridge.

The space beneath the pedestrian bridge has long been known as a shelter for homeless individuals. Speculation is that one of these displaced indigents used the raft to travel by water to various sanctuary locations along the city’s shoreline in an attempt to avoid detection by the authorities.

Recently, a city work crew boarded up the bridge alcove, removing the attractive nuisance.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.
