Connor Gravelle  Mostly architecture and skies… blurry skies. Sometimes just blurry, and sometimes just sky. Massachusetts to Los Angeles for the cloudy weather.

A few of my thoughts, for those who won’t mind a bit of reading. It’s safe to say that we have all been troubled a lot lately with the sorrowful reluctance of this country to reconcile its past. There are no fewer than 1,503 publicly sponsored spaces in the United States honoring the Confederacy, all of which stand to perpetuate racial subjugation and White Supremacy. This is not about “history”, “heritage” or “honoring the war dead”. Remind yourself what the Confederacy fought for. This 152-year assault of historical revisionism on the finality of the Civil War must end. As a country (and as a community around architecture) we cannot continue to condone public spaces which endorse racism, White Supremacism and, as of this most recent resurgence of heinous behavior, Neo-Nazism. / Do check out the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Report “Whose Heritage: Public Symbols of the Confederacy”

Light like thick, voluminous substance, pouring around skyscrapers and drowning the city in a heavy Californian haze

Standing in a field seven years ago on some anonymous day: the smell of New England afternoons in early Spring with all their phosphorescently yellow flower buds and burnt chartreuse brush
