Raystown Lake

I was reading Henry David Thoreu's Walden in the summer of 2012. The same time I went on a vacation with my husband's family on a houseboat traversing Raystown Lake, a twisty-turny region tucked in the middle of Pennsylvania. I photographed with the Holga camera and created a book of my experience. The interleaving paper is filled with selected paragraphs from Walden in my handwriting. I felt this pairing best discussed my feelings at the time. What I've provided here is a selection of the 44 page book.
