A sort of storm drain


This photo is part homage to my good friend Ehpem, whose images of a storm drain in Victoria, British Columbia, have held my interest for the past three or four years, and part homage to my memories of living in New Orleans while I was in grad school. I lived near Lake Pontchartrain and often went to the lakefront to study or to look at that far horizon (because it was the only place to see the horizon!). Most of the city felt closed in (our kitchen window, for example, looked directly into the neighbor’s front doorway only a few feet away), a feeling that I didn’t like then and like even less these days.

It was nice to re-visit the lakefront when I was in New Orleans last week for a conference.
