Back to the drain
Today marks the last post in the current collaboration between Ehpem and me, and it seemed fitting to end with on the storm drain, because that’s where it all started.
If you follow Ehpem’s blog (and if you don’t, you really need to!), you’ll know that he has a strong attachment to a certain storm drain. There was one particular storm drain photo that he posted, in the fall of 2012, that I liked. I liked it a lot. I liked it so much that even a week or so after it had been published, I was still thinking about it. I put a comment on Ehpem’s blog, asking if he’d be willing to sell me a print. He replied right away, and soon a great email friendship developed.
We have many things in common, and enough differences to make it interesting. I’ve been lucky enough to have visited Ehpem and his family two times, and we have as much fun in person as we do in our emails. Who would have thought any of this could happen from a couple of photography blogs? Certainly not either of us.
And that photo I wanted to purchase? It’s on my wall, along with a couple of other prints of Ehpem’s. (Collecting art was also not anything I initially anticipated from writing a blog.)
Both of my visits to Victoria started with a stop at the storm drain; on my most recent visit, we went there at least one time every day. And I can see why it’s such a captivating subject: it looks different every time.
And, not only does the drain-to-ocean view warrant a photo, so does the drain-to-city view:
