OK, fine, I lied, that’s exactly what it is: another project. But it’s one of those nice ones, you know, where you have very little to do, except spend a quarter of a second checking out an Instagram picture of the exact same spot every day. And I mean — exact: I take those pictures from the very corner of the window to make sure the angle doesn’t change an inch (or less). That angle quite logically covers what we can see from our window: a bridge over troubled water. Well, not so troubled, it’s actually a lock, but who’s checking except me, right? Right?
Also, you can see a bit of the construction behind that bridge, part of an actual historical monument — used to be a gate, back when Paris was obviously a tad smaller — and a bunch of trees in front of all of that. In short, an absolutely breathtaking take on the daily life of the neighborhood. Including drug dealing, since this happens to be a spot where drug trafficking occasionally takes place (crack cocaine, in case you were wondering, and good too). OK, fine, I lied: it may be a somewhat boring sight at times (in case you are into crack cocaine), but at least you get the trees. And trees change every season, did you know that? I didn’t.
And then there’s the fact that I didn’t actually start this project for the pictures. Even though that’s what I’m asking of you to check out. No, they are essentially the raw material for what I’m really after: a nice little time-lapse video that will, indeed, show that trees change over time. If I last long enough at this, that is. In short, what you will — hopefully — get in a year will be a 30-second video of trees changing with the seasons. Aren’t you all happy I have a new project?
Please say yes.
