Blueberry Hill. August 2008. © Allison V. Smith

" See, I like forgetting. When I see a place for the first time I notice everything, the color of the paper, the sky, the way people walk, door knobs, every detail.
Then, after I've been there for a while, I don't notice them anymore. Only by forgetting can I remember what a place is really like... 
So maybe for me forgetting and remembering are the same thing. " 
David Byrne, True Stories
