Living in Berkeley, I see something new every day. Literally. Even after two decades living here, I almost always see something new every time I leave the house. For better or for worse!
As a photographer, I have frequently thought that I should be one of those guys who caries a camera everywhere, armed and ready for whatever decisive moment leaps out in front of me. Last Fall I made my best effort at being an every day documentarian, when I spent a few months intensely photographing the people and textures of my neighborhood in a project that I called Portrait of Berkeley.
In order to inspire myself to shoot and share more daily photography like this, I’m introducing the Serendipity column on my blog. This column will be a showcase for found moments, photographed in my hometown and beyond. Stay tuned!
