Considering none of the life without the APA pictures were planned - that is, pre-visualized - but, rather, came together as an afterthought, so to speak, I am very pleased with the results. In fact, I am of the opinion that the pictures would not be any better even if I had planned them.
That said, when life without the APA # 1, aka: Free parking, was accepted into the IMPACT Our Changing Environment exhibit, it was the only life without the APA picture existent. Part of the juried acceptance required me to create another 3-4 like minded pictures for the exhibit. While I was confident I could produce, the prospect of the doing was daunting, re: the aforementioned drudgery and tedium involved in making these pictures.
As it turned out, the actuality was not nearly as bad as the imagining, making wise. Yes, there was an element of drudgery and tedium, however, that reality was mollified by the fact that virtually all of my personal picture making is performed, across multiple formats / mediums and over decades of picturing, with what is essentially the same lens, focal length equivalency wise - slightly wide angle lenses.
Some of the images - the street scene in A KODAK moment and the parking lot in Free parking (yes, John, they are Rochester scenes) - used in the making of the life without the APA pictures were made as long ago as circa 1980. Those pictures were made on color negative film in my 8×10 view camera. Some others were made on color negative film in my Nikon 35mm cameras. And, of course, many of the recent (last 8 years) picture elements were made using a digital camera of one sort or another.
In any event, all of the pictures which were used in the making of the life without the APA work were made with slightly wide angle lenses (relative to the various formats) and, just as critically, they were also made from my eye level. Once again, virtually every picture I make is made from an (my) eye level POV. That's because, since I see the world, especially so when I am making pictures, from a standing POV, and, because I picture what I see, I make most of my personal pictures from my eye level perspective.
Consequently, same focal length lenses + same eye level POV = a much less daunting task of selecting and blending the large number of pictures / picture elements - up to 60+ pictures were used in the making of the 8 final life without the APA pictures - than it would be otherwise.
FYI, it's time to get on with the show - printing, mounting, etc.
