Willow Walk

By taking a picture in roughly the same spot every two months on the way to work, I’ve made a sequence of nature photos that I find interesting. I wonder whether they would be useable by children (and if so, at what age?) to identify the seasons?

And yes, the idea did come from the visual diaries project.

    I had this idea, when I was around 16 and a keen photographer, of taking a picture of the same tree for a whole year. Film and processing costs were prohibitive then, but now? More than possible. Perhaps a little depressing to in the sense that we live in a constantly changing universe in which imperceptibly all living things move towards their inexorable end.

    I think it’s still feasible. Look at the trees on our campus, for example. Maybe change is inevitable – seasonal, annual, over a lifetime – but it’s our desire for stability that deceives us into finding it depressing?
