Is Nowhere Somewhere?

All of these signs have something to say.

They offer us guidance or they serve as a blank canvass  for some impromptu self expression.

Most of the time I think they get in the way and that they talk too much.

Just like people.

Step Away From The Camera

Sometimes when I take a picture it’s because I see a story and want to preserve the moment.

Sometimes my dog grabs my phone and I save those pictures because my dog took them and I love him…duh.

And other times the pictures aren’t just plain wrong, but I like them anyway…for example:

Last Monday  the sky was full of smoke and the Sun looked ill so I took a picture of it because I lack empathy for nature.

I toss non recyclables into the recycle bin a lot of the time- that’s how bad I am to Nature.

I liked this picture better upside down.

Actually, it was a bad shot but I liked the colors and textures so I wanted to make it work.

I’m not sure who hung this picture of a cat( or maybe it ‘s a rabbit)  in the tree to save it from the sidewalk which was wet from rain but if they cared enough to do that I figured I should do my part to save it too.

So I took a picture of it.

My brother is a talented photographer, my nieces are gifted too. Me. I just sort of try to take good pictures and most of the time I fail.

But damn, they ARE interesting failures.

So in my own pathetic little way, I guess I’m not half bad

Just A Peek

This weeks photo Challenge at WordPress is called “Peek”

These pictures are a little peek at the stories I’m working on.

I think they’re a bit haunting, which is a good thing if you’re me.

Yesterday was Halloween, today is the Day of The Dead.

If I have taken anything away from Halloween, The Day of the Dead and All Souls Day it’s this- no matter how abandoned a house may look, how lifeless deadfall may look, how dried and on the road to full decay the leaves that are being pushed along the ground by the chilliest of winds is-

you are not seeing these things alone-

something is looking back at you, something is walking along side you, something is trying to whisper into your ear.

Today my B/W Photo Challenge Response was an attempt to express that feeling.

I’ve titled these pictures:

” I’m Still Here”
