Visual Diary #1

As mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been keeping a kind of visual diary of different things that have happened along the way on my US trip. I’ve collected conversations, cultural oddities, random thoughts, strange happenings and characters from the streets of New York, trying in some way to capture a collage of the day to day of my travels.

I began with the above array of pens, moleskin diary (never leave home without one!) and glue stick. Here are some of the pages so far…

I’ll post more oddities as I capture them…
