Day 363 — Level One

Countdown to the end of 25' RADIUS. It's been a fun exercise that has taught me a lot. In the final three days of 2013 I shall show you an overview of the apartment space in which I shot all the images. The first level, the living room, begins on the third floor of the building which exists in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. In other people's apartments they have made this room their master bedroom. Behind me is a closet and full bath. There are only the two vertical windows which let light into the room. The other end of the apartment is a closed wall. The small balcony has been the subject of a number of photos such as Days 4, 13, 25, 37,  54 and 92. In mid summer the sun rises directly in front of these windows flooding the apartment with light. The balcony looks out over San Francisco Bay toward Oakland, but I resisted any landscape shots excepting the few shots of the sky on Days 76, 136 (the only full view from the balcony) and 203. The white curved chairs on the left played a role on Days 9 and 32. The Alessi bowl on the coffee table hosted Days 11, 18, 19, 48, 75, 82 and 273. I stood on the spiral staircase for today's shot and pointed the camera lens through the stairs to get this high view. The staircase played a role on Days 1, 47, 68, 79, 218 and 221. The African sculpture to the left was a player on Days 98, 275 and 346. The African mask plant (Days 276, 283, 308, 310 and 361) is at the back of the room on the low table with the holiday cards and next to the lamp on that same table is the other little African sculpture from Days 193, 211, 344, 346.
