Come On Is Such A Joy

Yup, nobody knows.  Nobody even suspects.  If they only knew, they’d be on me in a flash, but I’ve taken all of the precautions, covered all of my tracks, and have hidden myself in plain view.  They’ll never, ever know.  … Continue reading

Aaron had seen so many pictures.  They were pictures of buildings from everywhere, and they were colorful.  Nananny spoke in her gentle way, but Aaron did not know what she was saying.  Some of the buildings were very old and … Continue reading

Moving On

He couldn’t have been less subtle.  Of course, that must have been his intention, to end things in such a way that there would be no turning back.  She had felt it coming, but even so it seemed like part … Continue reading

The Conversation

It had been a long time – too long a time since they had seen one another.  Each had stories to tell, accomplishments to highlight and failures to gloss over.  Growing up they shared so many things, occasionally fighting over … Continue reading

Determined

It has been a while since I have posted, and once again being gainfully employed (at least through September) has taken away from my ability to offer images. No complaints. I have been working on a portfolio that I have … Continue reading

We were both waiting. I was waiting to see what she would do, and she was waiting for her cigarette to finish. Cars drove past, people walked by, and we both kept our positions, waiting. Had I known what she … Continue reading

Floating Past

It is not possible to notice the people who enter, and just as quickly, exit our lives, oftentimes without our knowledge. We may see them in out peripheral vision, or they might enter full view, but they do not register … Continue reading

This is the sister image to one I uploaded recently. I like the feeling in this image, as it takes me back many years. Comparing the two images one will see that one of them has been flipped, though I’m … Continue reading

This is the third of my three Bromoil street photography images. I am using this process to add an element of abstraction from the scene. Everywhere I’ve ever been, people make lines and force the cars to go within these … Continue reading
