Last year I was able to crawl through a barbed wire fence providing the spacing was not too narrow. It’s not a wise move really because I have had my hair caught or my shirt snagged by a barb and I am there positioned between two rows of wire bent over trying to get my hair or fabric out of the mess and pull myself to the otherside without getting a scratch.
Right now I am lucky to get through a narrow doorway. Six more weeks and the baby is born. Not only can I not crawl through narrow spaces, it is becoming more difficult to pick up items off the floor, climb a ladder, and get up out of the bathtub after a hot bath. But there are things in this world that must be photographed. My taking a bath is not one of them.
In a Journalspace post way back when, two years ago perhaps, I shared this quote by Dorothea Lang: “One should really use the camera as though tomorrow you’d be stricken blind.”
