Freedom and Obligation

Greg Herringer

In 1975 freedom was a multi-speed bike and a two tone bulb horn. In 2008, obligation is the operation and maintenance of a 13 year old car that I just can't part with.

For the "Past and Present" project, I have paired my wheels from the '70s to my current ride. I have emulated the distinctive cropping and colour cast of the past to provide some continuity of...umm... style?

The past pic was snapped with a drug store compact camera that took 110 cartridge film. The setting was the backyard of my grandparent's home in Ontario.

The present pic was snapped with my D80 in Golden Ears Provincial Park near Vancouver BC. Unfortunately, neither redwood patio furniture nor colourful patio tiles were available at the park for this recreation.
