    Still The Autos


    2012 - 05.29

    I have no idea how a car might end up when I initially take the photo. Its like picking out an ice-cream flavor. Mood, color, and shape all seem to play a part, if only I knew which part and how. I might find a recipe one day but for the moment… playing occupies my idle time. Here’s to the Hudson.

    Road Trip


    2012 - 05.28

    Today took me to Mt. Victory Ohio, a quaint little town with tons of personality! Classic cars lined the center of town and adjacent side streets, while folks exchanged stories of earlier times and the vehicles they once had. Tonight you should be able to see Mars in the southwestern sky after sunset. I thought this vehicle might be a good transporter to the red planet.

    In Memory


    2012 - 05.26

    As time slides through this Memorial Day weekend I think of yesterday, of the way things were before troops were sent, the economy bottomed out, before tough times. But you know… it just goes back to the last cycle of tough times. Children should not have to worry, lives should not be lost over disagreements, and no one should be hungry that wants to contribute. A place that embodies this lack of suffering shouldn’t be called paradise, it should be called Earth. Perhaps the warmth that radiates from everything that has been touched by life will someday be strong enough to show courage to the weak, and strength to the fearful, without lethal measures. The bricks in this image were created one at a time, laid one at a time. And no matter how broken the overall structure appears, the bricks still absorb and reflect the same amount of heat as they did the day they were laid. Maybe broken can be saved. A salute to our troops, a warm moment of reflection to all of those who have touched our lives.

    Perhaps a door will open…

    Faith Deserted


    2012 - 05.24

    I came across this church last weekend in the middle of an unplowed cornfield. It was as if time had just passed over the area, leaving both the field and the church isolated and deserted. When I approached the structure, a turkey vulture startled the pageeebers out of me and flew out the side window. Very appropriate I guess.

    Perhaps he felt as though faith was dead and was just checking to see. He was perched in a nearby tree as I got in the car to leave.

    Spring Beauty

    I have one yellow iris that bloomed in one of my beds this week. I can never come up with a favorite one though as all the colors are spectacular.
