My husband smiles and shakes his head when he sees me taking photos of the ground. He's become accustomed to it by now though and even realizes that sometimes I get some really cool images.

That said, I'm not quite sure what he would have thought had he been with me Saturday as I knelt in front of the Natick fire house to photograph the crosswalk. Thankfully, all was quiet as I knelt there, admiring the wonderfully graphic patterns created by Massachusetts weather, the weight of the fire trucks and maybe even by human feet.


  1. These are utterly beautiful... I'm often found taking photos of things considered 'odd' by others too! So I'm totally with you! They look great displayed as a grid x

  2. Kathryn - It's good to find a kindred spirit! There's just something about the wear and tear on painted crosswalks that fascinates me immensely...just like with steps that have been repainted time and again so that the various layers of color show through. Enjoy!

  3. I love looking down and seeing the beautiful things...such lovely patterns here and I love the grid of course!

  4. Fiona - One of the things that I found so interesting about the crosswalk patterns was that I'd visited Natick, Massachusetts for the purpose of meeting another blogging contact, Jeanne Williamson, whose work is created using construction fencing. It was one of those happy accidents that seemed so apropos. I did wonder if she'd ever noticed the crosswalk and seen the similarities in patterning that I did. Jeanne's blog is on my favorites list if you care to take a look.
