London, 2010


Catching up with the past.  Reviewing photos from a trip I made almost five years ago, I found this nugget.

While walking through Hyde Park in London, there were many sights to behold.

-And then this scene

A young lady was feeding a patient and somewhat tame Canadian Goose.  The mother, sans shoes, was standing strongly behind the girl.  Her handbag and shoes hint as their social status.  The girl’s hat adds a bit of flair to her otherwise plain dress.

It could be any date, any year, and in any part of the world (almost).

Dare You. . .


I dare you.  I double-dog dare you to try this.

Was I alone?  It didn’t feel like it.  Was it dark?  Yes–and it was getting impossibly darker.

What time was it?  I didn’t check my watch.  But I did have to make it back to the hidden cemetery for one more photo shoot.  This time, I wanted to try something different.  Please let me know what you think.

This place has fascinated me for the past year.  And as unique as it is–and as much as I want to go there to get these photographs, I hate coming back to my apartment.  It feels like each time I go (and return), I bring back a little more of this place.

Forgotten Insanity


This playground is in a strange between-region.  Because of its location, nobody goes there.  Except I did, today.  I might be the first person to visit this playground in 10 years.  As I walked through it, I could find no trace of human presence.  It felt apocalyptic.  And then, I heard the voice:

Oh, there you are!  It’s been so long!  Come here and let me give you a squeeze.  Would you like to swing?  Oh. . . I can fix that.  Slide?  Now where did I put that slide?  Don’t mind the mess; I was just about to clean up.  Where did the children go?  Oh, there you are!  It’s been so long!  Come here and let me give you a squeeze.  Would you like to swing?  Oh. . . I can fix that.  Slide?  Now where did I put it?  I’m getting frustrated!  Don’t mind the mess; I was just about to clean up.  Where did all the children go? It’s been so terribly long!  Come here and let me give you a squeeze.  Would you like to swing?  Oh. . . I can fix that.  Slide?  Now where did I put that?  Don’t mind the mess; it’s been here so long–I was just about to clean up.  Where did the children go? 

No. . . Don’t walk away!  Come back and stay.  And stay.  And stay.

Found #15


Here’s a new side of my photography.  I like finding strange things in unusual places–and taking pictures of them.  Today’s find is a blue cube very reminiscent of the blue cube from the movie  Mulholland Dr.

Unfortunately, I did not have my Nikon–this is a Blackberry photo (my sincerest apologies).

I did not touch it.
