Kaleidoscope #565

To want nothing. Just to wait, until there is nothing left to wait for. Just to wander, and to sleep. To let yourself be carried along by the crowds, and the streets. To follow the gutters, the fences, the water’s edge. To walk the length of the embankments, to hug the walls. To waste your time. To have no projects, to feel no impatience. To be without desire, or resentment, or revolt.
― Georges Perec, Things: A Story of the Sixties; A Man Asleep

 

 

Below is the original photo used to create this image. The alley behind my building is a treasure trove of of interesting images, if you like drains and gutters… No special lighting or retouching, just a snap from my smart phone.
