Interurban – Sense of Place and Time

I live in a vibrant neighborhood nestled against the mountains in Boulder, Colorado. Thirteen years ago, my family moved into a predominate 1950‘s era neighborhood. We were the new kids on the block, buying an old house and renovated it to today’s standards. Since that time, all the elders on our block have died and almost all the homes have either been demolished/restored/renovated and modernized. We have a completely new history evolving as the whole neighborhood undergoes a rapid change. Thus I began thinking of all the house/family/individual histories that linger as only faded memories; children playing hide and go seek in the magic garden; dad’s old tool shed/man cave; lawn care, home maintenance and June Cleaver hanging the laundry. This project is about a sense of place and time in the Interurban/Floral Park neighborhood. In this series only times stands still on the Rittenhouse Clock.

Crested Butte, Colorado – Sense of Place Series

tagalong_cbCrested Butte is a quaint, historic mining town turned tourist/recreation town, located in SW Colorado north of Gunnison and west of Aspen. It is situated at the end of a high mountain valley that drains the East, Slate and Coal Creek rivers into the Upper Gunnison watershed. It is surrounded by the West Elk, Ragged, Snowmass-Maroon Bell and Fossil Ridge Wilderness Areas. The alpine beauty is unrivaled! The locals are fun-loving, community oriented and protective of open space and native habitats. Creative community events abound! The Chainless Race, 4th of July, Vinotok, Red Lady Ball, Big Air on Elk, Al Johnson Race and Flauschink are a few events that bring out local color, costumes and Joie de Vive in Paradise!
