There is another reason this project exists. I am hopelessly sentimental, so when I know I will miss something, I photograph it. It’s how I deal with change.. and change is not my favorite. It’s why I chose to start photographing this bench several months ago. I knew that change was upon us and here it is, peaking at me now from just around the corner. My husband and I have decided to move away from Los Angeles to West Michigan at the end of next month. We know it’s the right move to make, but it is just never a good time to say goodbye to the people and places you have grown to love. So, here is the next installment of my bench series and one of my last. I decided to see the bench in color again. I love the soft focus, dreamy quality of photographs made with my plastic Diana film camera. They feel like memories from another time.
