It was really affirming to see my name displayed on a wall alongside a few of my photographs. Which.seemed.really.odd. I mean, whatever my son scribbles his name in crayon on his bedroom wall and that's probably affirming to him too.
I guess I needed to feel like it was worth it, like the money/energy/time-scraping and wagon-pulling mandated some kind of emotional reward. I had no idea how much work it is to pull together a small show!

These photographs represent a series I call Cloud Sidewalk that I shot in one day late in 2007 when my son was about 8 months old. As a new stay-at-home mom acclimating to the needs of my infant son, I found myself traversing the same streets of my Oakland neighborhood. While I was initially frustrated by this new pace, I eventually learned a fortuitous lesson about slowing down. These photographs were a way to remind myself to enjoy the details. By examining daily details on a granular level, my intent was to notice the minutiae of what we miss each day in our hurrying. All images were shot on on Fuji Provia 35mm slide film.
