Contact Sheet: Walking North Avenue

In a city where people define themselves as “east side” or “west side,” North Avenue is a thoroughfare that bridges the divide. I have driven the road hundreds of times, but last week I decided to slow down, get out of my car, and walk its length. I walked west at dawn and east at sunset, the sun to my back, and watched our city rouse itself in the morning and slow down as dusk approached. North Avenue begins with a massive rooted tree on the west and dead ends, literally, with a graveyard on the east, and the images in between are glimpse of life at the edges of the day. (J.M.
