I know, The Skopeo Project has been dormant for a very long time. Was it silenced by one of the worst winters in New York City history? Was my attention fully diverted by a drawn out and stressful move? Did I simply give in to the challenge of finding new images when my routines are essentially the same? Is my new camera too complex to take the kind of spontaneous pictures I love? Probably a little bit of all that.
As it turns out, reigniting a routine can prove crushingly difficult. Even one I find as fun as the Skopeo Project. The truth is I’ve had new images ready to post for well over a month now. But after such a long absence, I felt it had to be the perfect re-inaugarual post. But, as I’ve learned before, looking for a particular image is not what the blog is about.
So for the next few weeks I’m going to let the blog go into a kind of stream of consciousness catch up mode. It’s going to be like bloggers rehab. It will ramble a little – in time, in season, and in locale. But the Skopeo Project will live again!
This sort of thematically appropriate image is the ascent from the F Train stop on Roosevelt Island, a narrow island in the East River under the Queensboro Bridge. The station is about 100 feet deep, making it one the deepest in the system. It takes a brave soul to climb out without the aid of the escalators.
