I shot these at a street corner, where I waited for a friend, thinking about how much I m.f. love the midwest. A lot of my friends have moved to more temperate climates. They "can't do these winters anymore." It's worth it to me. Here, it does on the outside what I do on the inside. I like when leaves fall like tiny pieces of paper from a tall building or when I see someone scraping a ice off their windshield with a CD case. Sometimes it's so cold, it's rude but it makes spring sweeter. And, our trees. They change in that way I can't say because it's too good that you know what I mean and I don't have to. I'd miss it.
