I spent yesterday evening photographing people's curtains. This opens up some uncomfortable situations. I felt very suspicious-looking as I snapped people's lacy whites. 
I'm really liking how people are putting up these curtains to shield themselves from prying eyes, then I come along and photograph the curtains, but others (people on the street or who are inside) think that I am trying to see past the curtains to what is inside. 
These curtains only hang in certain houses, where it is obviously an older person living there. Moving between neighbourhoods, you can tell where there are younger, hippier people living by the absence of the lace curtains.  
You can spot my reflection in some of the shots if you look closely. I like this added dimension, peering back out of the photo.
