For the past month, I have been driving back and forth, and back and forth, from the country to the city for this office project I am working on.

And because I often work with MALT (the Marin Agricultural Land Trust,) and they love to have photos of green hills for their annual reports… I have been trying to take the back-roads home, which has been nice because not only do I get to avoid the traffic, but I also get to build my 2009 library of green hill photos.

Here is my next installation of parallels between the two worlds that are not so far apart.

  1. looks like a fun project…although commuting can be a nightmare.
    I’m sure ur wondering to yourself which you prefer, city or countryside!? I do all the time. Love the photos. T x


  2. I love it. You capture it perfectly of course!
    Your pics of the city are right on target.

    Are you in town on March 5?

    It should be a good moment for pictures. It will be a zoo with oral arguements.

    Love to you!


  3. Love the hanging laundry photo. I saw that in China all the time but never got a good photo. I think i would enjoy commuting more if i would take time to recognize the art in it…. great building shots, too. looks like stuff out of architectural magazines. and love the yellow car with the yellow window frames.


  4. I too go back and forth, but between Marin County and the town of Sonoma. It’s true that they are so close together yet worlds apart. Nice photos.


  5. hey you – you have been incredibly busy – your blog looks great. I don’t have much time today ti linger or read, but will have a proper look in the next couple of days maybe over the weekend – but my initial wow comes already.

    Speak soon, love claudia


  6. p, beautiful photos. All of the differences and similarities rolled into our world. Like your new blog look too! xxoo
