A Map a Day

Now having a go at moving this over to twitter @reddlemap

A new page, a new resolution!  This is just a way to get myself to notice the maps I encounter, think about them as objects, images and my consumption of them as use-values.  I am very interested in google maps and streetview etc but my aim here is more to get myself to take photographs of maps where I’m encountering them.  Initially I’ve looked through all the images I’ve put on this site to date and pulled out the ‘maps’ (which itself challenges my definitional ideas) and will add more as I go along.
