After the flood in Lyons Colorado in 2013 the water had reshaped the landscape of the town. What had been roads, and homes, and land organized by people, was now a series of conduits carved by the water. There was no obvious respect for doorways, windows, or even sidewalks for that matter. The water had shown even the earth and concrete a new way to go. I spent a day tracing those new pathways with my camera. Flood waters don’t have mercy, but they do require respect.
