So there were these roses. Acres of roses lined up in a north and south direction. The sun was high and bleaching everything, including the fighter jets screaming by. I took my shot in between the rows. The space is where the magic is. It really is. This is how I got up to speed.
When I go after a new project I have to get up to speed on the context super fast. Gawd I know this is so deep. Winners get up to speed on a project's context so fast; it is like entering the interstate and pushing like hell on the gas so you can merge into traffic.
This is how I look to the left as I merge into a new project. I look at stuff quickly. I take photos of things most people don't even notice. In the architecture world it is called CONTEXT. Context is a word a professor just loves to throw around. If you are late to class don't worry, you will hear it a million more times. Context is found when you get lost in it. Drive, walk, ride a bike and talking with locals leads you right to it. It's not like the building design will have cherubs in loin cloths at the building entrance.
It is more of a Johnny Depp thing. Johnny Depp walked in Jack Kerouac's jacket and squeezed a used tissue in the crumby pocket. Depp gets up to speed with his screen roles by walking in their shoes.
This fence is a good mile from the site. You will never guess where my site is. Sage, gray, red and a dirty white makes my mind start thinking of building materials.
I have a short time to put our qualifications for this project together and lock in my cruise control speed.
