You wouldn’t know it, but I took these shots in a church: Saint Paul’s basement in Oakland. I was shooting more church-like photos for another project, and caught sight of that checkered-tile floor as I leaned over the bannister of a staircase. I haven’t shot digital for months, so it felt strange to click off a bunch of frames instead of economizing them like I do with instant film. I’ve been more cautious with photography this year; I’m hesitant to take risks. I’ve been more protective of my grief, and talking about my mother’s life, and I wonder if this is affecting my creative life as well. Also, Jeff and I haven’t traveled much lately — a typical impetus for picture projects — but we planned a few road trips for fall which I’m excited about visiting through my lens.
