Put a Plant on it!

I inherited this old Kodak and it is completely broken. Makes a sweet jingle sound when you shake it, lovely.

It's been sitting on my bookshelf for years as a kind of decoration. A signal to people about what I'm about and a tribute to the evolution of the camera.

After a few weeks of quarantine, things in my home started to feel different.

Sort of like a 'what's the point?' feeling. If nobody is coming over, then why do I care about this busted crap sitting all around me? Almost like I was seeing the things I normally stare at in a different way.

So, I jammed dirt all up in that lens and took these shots. It was a good afternoon of creativity. I found another spot for my moss.

AND I realized two things:

1) I love plants just as much as I love cameras

2) The pandemic has changed absolutely everything.

This is the first chapter of a larger story about connecting with nature and my community, the global pandemic, and how I am dealing with everything. Click here for the background on the Moss Library and why I started this project.
