 p., paper, octavo (8 1/2" x 11"). The author, a journalist and once editor of Landscape Architecture, takes up the matter of "fleeting glimpses," arguing that "ephemeral events and places contain the makings of many futures. Learning to accustom our eyes to futures aborning is a way of coming to grips with what comes next." His thoughtful ruminations are eye-opening. Black-and-white photos depict such things and places as the view through your windshield; an abandoned one-room schoolhouse on the side of the road; views of things in the sky or merely above eye-level; disaster scenes; campsites; construction areas, etc. Fine.
