Looking Out, Looking In


I teach art in Los Angeles and have been living in San Luis Obispo since July. Once a week I commute to each way by train on the Amtrak Surfliner.  This project is an attempt to capture and document my journey with photographs, mental wanderings and train trivia.  

I enjoy the 'snap-shot' like quality that happens as when I use my point and shoot Cannon camera (for example, the reflections and blurring of the foreground, etc.).  Taking photos on every ride functions not only as a travel log, but an observation of the changing landscape over a nine month period of time.  This spatial-temporal study is a montage of a year of my life looking out of a train window.
