Seen and Noted

I've driven past this so many times that I've forgotten how bizarre it is. I guess even sheet metal manufacturers feel the need to be creative.

Stereoscope - Part Two

East Facade, Looking West

My friend, the Painter +, made a comment about one of my photos looking like a stereoscope and that idea stuck in my head.
     Earlier this year I posted a photo titled Camper under the headline of Stereoscope - Part One. I liked the concept that it had the qualities of a symmetrical mirror image. Homes in that area have few identifying details that set them apart.
     Today's image, East Facade, Looking West, is another example of my Simplify mantra and the stereoscopic notion. You can enlarge the image to see patterns of bricks and mortar but I prefer the flat, geometric approach to this photo.

Documentary - Part One

In 2005, my wife and I spent a week in Grand Canyon National Park. I've already posted some of the big landscape images on this blog, and now wanted to show some of our journey to the Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the Canyon.



The white dot in the center of the photo is actually the lead mule in the team ahead of us.
