Metal Restorer-People at Work

Meet John.  He restores metal downtown. Lots of metal.  

I spoke with him when I was downtown for lunch on jury duty selection day. 

 John used to teach shop but it was difficult to land a full time teaching position. 

How about these doors that have been restored? 

Here’s the BEFORE.  Check out left top corner 
I have to return to photograph some elevator doors he has restored. I should have asked him if he redtored the ones in the City County Building?Bronze elevator doors post, my guess? yes.

A Thoughtful and Creative Retirement Gift

Thanks,  Sylvia. These are so creative. Perfect for the photographer’s  home. A nice focus as you enter the living room.  Thank you for the unexpected present!

  I will put them at either end of the couch but they look great front and center for the pic!  Terrific update for the room, too. Now you have to come over for tea.

My June Plans Revealed at School Friday Afternoon 

During seventh period my door got decorated as a surprise, courtesy of Ms. McCann and a team of The Future Is Mine students.

I got some lovely words from some sweet teenagers as they read the door.

In January. I’d put in my letter of intent to retire at the end of this school year and told the adults but hadn’t shared with the students.  Now they can help me celebrate.

 

Today it feels real. 🎓🎉🎏😃

 

    

 

 

Thanks Ms. McCann

New Route, New Sign

Here’s the message board I saw on my way home from my new job at high school as I waited to get onto Saw Mill Run.   A quick snap with the iPhone-

JOY IS NOT IN THINGS

IT IS IN US

Thought it was a good one to think about as I drove.   In photo class, we’ve been talking  about the Art Element of LINE and there sure a lot of lines in the pic, too.  Not that these lines help the composition of the shot or add interest or draw the eye to a subject- just lots of power lines and wires on the bridge.

Attended first class at Silver Eye Center for Photography on Carson St with Wedding Photographer John Craig.

Must answer fifteen questions for homework!

Who is my audience for this blog?

Brevity seems key.

Why blog?  Get the word out about my work, what’s new and “use time wisely” during time off from school.

Thinking about entering possible shows. One about all things mechanical and the other about childhood.  Submitted for the G20 exhibition.

Doing something with purpose seems essential.  OR why bother?

Are readers “blogged out”?
