  • oh this is east coast – it has a very west coast light and fog feeling.

    i really like the three different spaces here – the road and traffic, the slice of stairwell and then this alternate place at the bottom of the stairs. this reminds me of some old George Tice images i was looking at today – he went to great effort to find places where you could see fields and city highways from the same vantage point – there is a similar feeling here.
