Photography – Week 126
There is something strange about geckos. This is my oldest son’s new pet. We’ve gone without pets for some time. Harder to see in this smaller size but I liked the shadows here. Hopefully I say this in a way that is different from the way people convince themselves they taste nuances in wine. I simply like the shadows. I would not pay extra money for them and would be happy if they came from light I bought at a gas station. There were a long series of these ads in large and small sizes. They felt a bit like folk art. It was pretty much the middle of nowhere yet the need for wigs must have been great. It is hard to take pictures of dunes that don’t feel boringly repetitive. I’m not sure I succeeded here but I though the way the light hit the single dune like a spot light was worth capturing. I try to take pictures of this building often- usually from the highway. It’s a pretty cool building and this was taken at the end of a 12 hour car ride. The light at that time of night mixed with the street light and rain created an interesting effect.

A super weak photography week. I almost opted not to post anything but figured this might motivate me to elevate my game this week.

I liked how the window bar works almost like one of those black bars to hide someone’s identity. He initially posed with his eyes rolled back in his head. The sign said NEED BEER so I think I needed to better explain the purpose of the photo. It bothers me to think he might have seen this as something meant to ridicule him. Trees and the old brick of the buildings here continue to interest me. I’m also still interested in your lonely pets.
