In the springtime, I find it easy to have images flowing into social media. We are in contact with a lot of sites during a time when everything in the garden is emerging and their is day to day changes and transformations in the landscape. But then...we get to, what I call, "Construction Season." We go through production phases during the year; spring maintenance till Memorial Day weekend, then smaller installs and constructions for a month or two, then by mid-July we start "Construction Season" where we build two or three larger landscape projects (It happens this way because of the time it takes to plan out larger projects). By the end of September we finish up a few smaller works as we start the fall maintenance season up until final leaf removals in early December.
But the images during construction season are slow. There is less change to document. In the real, most images in the Buff Hort project are of the changing seasons, the landscapes movement through human time, and the rhythm that we can move from place to place around the city. But when it comes time to document our changing of the landscape itself, well - those are slow photos.
