...is what I'm researching for my PhD. This album has some photos in it that speak to me of that theme. If any of the photographers want to chat about it - why they photographed what they did, what moves them about it, etc., please do! This won't officially go into my research. I just love the subject.
I love the chime of imperfect things,
together they pipe the symphony
of broken dreams.
Desires expressed in solitude
become tomes & zeppelins
in our mind's play.
Some friends & I bought an abandoned house in Detroit and we gutted & rebuilt it. We found a newspaper in the wall (among many other things). It was very crumbly, but I tried to save it - a copy of the Detroit Abend Post, a German-language paper. Apparently there used to be a network of [Your city here] Abend Posts, but now I think the only one is in Chicago or somewhere. Last I heard. I never got around to scanning or otherwise preserving the paper before I just tossed it. It was literally crumbling at the touch. But I saved a couple crumbs. You can see a bit of the little frame I keep it in; I like to think of it as the rim of a magnifying glass for the purposes of this photo.
I love concrete and rusty metal, so I was taking lots of pictures of this rusty chain and the pillars it was attached to with equally rusy fixures. You never know what folks here can use, so I thought I'd toss one of the pics up here.
This may be too small to be useful. I might be able to find another version if anyone wants it. I took it in 2001 on a trip to Ireland & Scotland. I think it's from Clanmachnois, but it might be from Iona.
When I was younger my grandfather and I would pick fruits off of this tree...
To you it may seem dull and dead but to me it represents fond memories of my childhood.
In time our loved ones lives will be taken away... but I think that's why God gave us memories.
I liked this worn door knob. It seems to say, No matter how ordinary you are, it's your tiny stories that make you unique.
This doorknob isn't interesting by design, it's become interesting by use. All this doorknob's scars and scratches, dents, worn spots, and stains are part of its hisotry and make it attractive.
Age is simply the process of becoming more beautiful by gathering more and more tiny stories in a combination that only you can incarnate.
I have just moved countries and my heart is still not sure how it feels. I saw a castle tonight right in the middle of the city. It was truly amazing nothing compared to what I would see at home, though it’s not home…
As part of my ongoing commitment to photograph more dandelions - except this isn't really a dandelion, but some flower that looks a lot like it in this stage of its life! (Anyone know what it is? The size alone makes it definitely not a dandelion.)
Here we see the circle of life (literally, a circle of life, right?) as the flower has faded into seeds that will bring new life.
Having been going to Eastern State Penitentiary for years to shoot, this is the first time I have ever gotten a shot of this mirror without anyone in it.
Hey all!! Been a while since I jumped in the record pool. Sorry who knows where the time goes.
This is something I shot with a buddy when we found this abandon school. I have more footage but just wanted to throw this together to see what ya thought. We're gonna go back and do something a little more thought out soon. Would love for someone to write and story, or give any ideas where to take a narritave.
I love this charcter!
Miss all of you Recorders!!
Much love from the Clown world.
P.s for some reason when I uploaded it. It cut the frame. It should be wider!
This si one of the most beautiful churches in Granada, The church and convent of the Franciscanos monks, have a lot of history in Granada and it's been witness of a lot of things like a war, earthquakes and even a volcanic eruption!
Las palomas anidan en el campanario
Sitting up straight and more saturated. And cropped. I also burned in the street a bit, well, a lot. Making the Warhol comment on the last version made me think this needed to be done: more geometric, more symmetrical, more colorful.
