flanerie in photos

sophia t. made this set of images and text as part of her flanerie project (a walk through downtown seattle). it is a large file, about 9mb, in pdf format, so don't click on it if you are browsing by dialup. but i think it is worth a look.

I loved the photos! It's interesting to see the photos from a "flanerie perspective" because they somehow make things that are known (such as the Owl N Thistle, a favorite place of mine) and turns it into something to be looked at or viewed instead of something to experience. I don't usually view the city with the eyes of a camera, and so doing so brings things I thought I "knew" into a new dimension. Also, it was funny to see the tourists "trapped". I always find it funny to see tourists in Seattle, so random to me. =) Cheers.

I really enjoyed these pictures. It was a great example of an artist flaneur. It has inspired me to go out and take more pictures in Toronto.

I was interested to see the photograph of free hugs in Seattle. I was sketching people giving free hugs just this week at U of T. I participated in the free hugs as a person being hugged, but I knew that the person doing the hugging was a fellow student. I don't know how I'd feel about hugging a totally random person.

These are some gorgeous pictures... They show the vibrancy of our city...

When I see these it does in fact show an artistic flaneur. It would be great if the photographer could have placed his/her perceptions additionally.. But then again, this is unnecessary for a flaneur with what we have learned..
