It is hard to say that any one image is typical of what made The Hidden World of the Nearby. However, Monet's Meadow still seems to me, after 30 years to be remarkable.
I passed this corner every day for 18 years going to and from work. In the late summer of 1981 it looked unusually green and I stopped, parked across the street and happened to catch a glimmer of the setting sun. As is true for virtually all my images, this was the only time in my years of passing it that it looked like this.
