On Monday morning I woke up with the sun.
Inspired by the latest Chevy commercial on tv, I decided to get dressed, make some coffee and head out with my camera and a small photo album.
I drove all over Montauk for 2 hours capturing past memories in the form of old photographs, against an expansion of their original backdrops. It was such a nice feeling to stand in the places I know I've been and recapture bits of those memories. We're constantly passing places we've been, or places our loved ones once stood, but we don't often give it much thought. I was very comforted by the thought that, although I was standing in these spots quite alone, I was once there with my family.
This will definitely be an on going project.
I'm looking forward to any future travels that bring me to places I've been. (and of course places that I haven't been so that I can make new memories to photograph and remember in the future.)
(in case you're thinking "she was inspired by a car commercial??" you must watch it. Please. It really is quite beautiful and full of American pride.)
