Apex, 2018

The metadata says this picture is from August 2018.

I might have been trying to catch some of the House Martins in flight over the rooftop. August 2018 is a little over two years ago. Two years passes in the blink of an eye, or so it seems to me now.

In a recent YouTube interview, Nan Goldin said that she no longer takes photographs of people. She prefers instead to make pictures of landscapes, the sky and interiors — areas that interest me too.

This photo is one of many I’ve taken of the house I live in. Perhaps the reason for my focus on it is that, as a home-worker with a narrow social life, I spend a lot of time here.

I haven’t yet become bored with this house as a photographic subject — to quote Seneca,  “Just as one of small stature can be a perfect man, so a life of small compass can be a perfect life.”
