How to Leave


I love some nice signage.

This is straightforward, and graceful with the way the bold strokes of the letters are enhanced by the narrow lines behind them. And also – the meaning is clear, and nothing is misspelled.

The broken-cornered piece of plexiglass made a ground-high greenhouse for buffalo grass.

The more I see the less I understand


I’ve seen this old gate before. A lot of times. But it wasn’t until I made this image that I noticed that the window seems to be at the bottom of the gate. That doesn’t seem exactly right.

Nor, of course, does a gate-window seem quite right.

There was no explanation


I just really don’t have any idea what this was all about. There’s not one thing there that makes the least bit of sense to me.

(UPDATE: the chairs, lamp, and table are gone. Only the curtains remain.)

(UPDATE, updated: My friend Ron is Facebook friends with an woman named Terry Gilmore Fritz, who did the installation as part of a photography class. According to Ron, she set it up so passsersby could “shoot people while in the scene.” So it totally makes sense that I saw it, stopped, and made photos without people. That’s comforting, somehow.)

Buy 1 Get 1


For various reasons, I’ve been in a bit of a shooting slump lately.

But I feel like I might be coming back. On Thursday morning, I noticed the way the sunlight played across this roadside fireworks stand. And on Friday, I brought my camera, pulled off the road, and made a few images. It felt right.

(Also, for you fireworks shoppers out there, it’s Buy 1 Get 1 every day.)
