tiny dreams

It was easy to tell that this little girl was longing for one of those stuffed animals – kids at the fair always want one of those carnival-game prizes. And I am pretty sure her adult stayed there until he’d won one for her.

Ha! Ha! Remember back in the day* when my photos were real documentary, just sort of in the vein of “nothing to see here – please move along,” and not at all conceptual or blurry or any of that stuff.

*Like three weeks ago.

the waiting

Look at me, with the photos of people. I resisted this for a while. For a really long while.

Now I wonder why I waited so long…

always fresh

My friend and I decided to go to a gun show, mostly because we’d never been. And also we were on the heels of a successful trip to a bodybuilding competition and felt like trying new things was our new thing to try.

In addition to lots of gun/blade/misc. weapons options, you can get “concealed carry” purses decorated with fake turquoise stones AND a big cross, which answers the question “What would Jesus do (with His gun)?” Obvs, he’d carry it in a purse.

And you could also purchase some jelly from this vendor. We spotted her apple tequila jelly and stopped to have a chat. She told a long story about how she got tipsy – tipsy! – from repeated tastings of the in-process jelly. “And that was before I even GOT to the brandied peaches!” was the conclusion to her narrative.

Anyway, after much careful consideration, we’ve decided our official position on gun shows is that we never have to go to another one ever again. (However, if we change our mind, there seems to be one in town about every couple of weeks.) (But we won’t change our mind.)

The other evening, I went over to the industrial side of town and did some shooting with a new-to-me 135mm lens. I usually shoot a 28mm on this particular camera and you know what? There’s a BIG difference between the two lenses! Really, who could have even predicted that. Other than, like, you know, everyone?

Anyway, I found this parking lot that was full of what looked like FEMA trailers, all lined up and pointing toward the setting sun.
