"Raccoon Prints Under Moonlight"
TITLE - "Raccoon Prints Under Moonlight"
WHERE - Rain Culvert, San Diego, California (2015)
In a wild brush canyon behind a row of suburban backyards, I found a trickle of rainwater coursing down a cement runoff culvert, its eddies capturing sunlight and illuminating colorful sediments and pollutants of various kinds. Raccoon paw prints were also clearly visible, making a path up the culvert and reminding me of the neglected canyon's actual denizens, seldom observed. I returned to this location at different times of day to observe the trickle of water under differing light conditions.
