What I Must Look Like to Others

While sitting in Pamela’s with Erika’s family I saw someone out of the corner of my eye. I was waiting for two eggs over easy- but pulled out the phone.
When I looked out the window I saw this guy shooting in the alley.
Wondered what he saw.
I have shot the same alley at night.
He was intent. Took his time. Shot quite a few. He seemed to stay in the same spot and did not kneel or step to either side- but I thought to myself that this must be what I look like to others around me.

Have a good week.


Do You Even Think About What You See in the Trash?

Due to Penn Avenue closure, I ended up in a Bloomfield Alley and caught this trash scene with the iPhone as I waited to get out into the main road.

Do you think people get tired of looking at what’s on their wall?

What I Found Across from School

If you have followed me in the winter you might have seen the pink toilet in the snow.  I saw that one on the way to school.  This one not quite as dramatic and a different season but the view is directly from the school parking lot and the art room. You know how people’s garbage fascinates me!


Painted Brick and Autumn Vine

Don’t understand why people paint brick.  But the peeling paint I found in the back alley was a great background for the autumn vine.

Like an artist's palatte, just waiting for me to find it.


Urban Communication

Gangwish Street in Bloomfield.

Wish I could have entered this shot in the Communication show.

I have 3 photos in Communication  show/1650 Gallery, 1650 Echo Park Avenue in Los Angeles until August 29th. You can see the Croatian sign outside a church in Porec(the 8th photo down) and the rest can be seen here.)Hiriing Now- Ritter’s sign and No Cardboard Dumpster. Today’s post would  have been a great addition to the show.  Took it yesterday on way home from school.
