*** Sidewalk Weekend! ***

Sidewalk Rating: Surrealist

-->
The interstate highway below disappeared and then sometimes reappeared at a spot Sylvanshine had to squash his cheek right up against the plastic inner window to see, then as the rain recommenced and he could tell they were beginning descent it reappeared in the window’s center, light traffic crawling with a futile pointless pathos you could never sense on the ground. What if it felt as slow to actually drive as it looked from this perspective? It would be like trying to run under water. The whole ball game was perspective, filtering, the choice of perception’s objects.

[David Foster Wallace, The Pale King]

“The plan, say the promoters, would enable residents of summer houses on the big lake to have their launches waiting at the town lake.”

2. CAMERA

For me, taking photos while on my travels is extremely important. So important, in fact, that I’ve listed the camera as the second most important item for bicycle touring. I use my camera not only to snap photos of people I meet and places I’ve been, but I use the photos I take on the road to share my bicycle touring experiences with other people. People like you! And on occasion, I actually use my camera as a sort of digital atlas – snapping photos of road signs and maps I see along my route, and then referring to them later on my digital camera, using the photos I’ve snapped to navigate and find my way as I ride. After years of traveling by bike, my camera is one of the few items I have a hard time imaginging life without.

My subject is Sharon Roseman of Denver, who gets lost every day — in the streets she’s lived in for 20 years, even in her own house. When she wakes, her walls seem to have moved overnight. Her world can be transformed in the blink of an eye.
