These photos often act as type of 'sketches' for later work. They normally arise during daily wanderings and outings. Frequently, the images are intentionally captured to document, investigate, or clarify particular compositions for work in progress.
The photographs are also taken from sheer aesthetic interest, or an unconscious appeal that cannot be understood until studied later. They become important then through the connections they reveal regarding ideas, significances, and fascinations that might otherwise not be considered.
