holding it all together

Here’s this fence detail, for those of you who have ever wondered how a chain link fence is repaired. I mean, I realize that’s probably a very small demographic, but here at One Day | One Image, we strive to (occasionally) offer Actual Advice. And how lucky that today is one of those days!

Is faded glory still glory?

Here’s another image from my spur-of-the-moment project to document the seedier side of the Graceland neighborhood. This empty shopping center is directly across the street from the mansion.

Ten minutes away

A pizza joint, two billboards, a threatening sky, and approaching darkness seem to be an apt metaphor for what happens to most people who come here seeking fame. Not to be too heavy-handed about it or anything…

Bethel, coming and going

Here’s a two-way sign for a little country church on top of a hill.

Also: it did require a u-turn to get back to it. And also: it took me about five miles of driving to decide that I didn’t want to pass up a chance to photograph the church (and sign). Sometimes I make a u-turn decision right away, and other times it takes a few minutes to decide. And also, one more time: I can’t recall a time that I’ve ever made a u-turn, gotten back to the place, and decided that it wasn’t worth a photograph after all.

Swept Away

This was a nice sight: a broom, an industrial-size dustpan, and one footprint.
