Like looking through glass

I think I owe you an apology; the other day I posted a link to a song that wasn’t even by Bruce Cockburn. That must have been very confusing, as it went against everything that you expect from us here at One Day | One Image, musically.

So here’s Bruce.

And that funny-looking instrument he’s playing? It’s a charango.

From the looks of things, it took that chair three years to move four feet to the left.

I made a return visit to this little trailer, which (if you’ve been around here long enough) you may recall from 2013.

Go on over and look at that other photo; I’ll wait.

So, see how it doesn’t look like anything’s changed? My theory is that the hot, dry air has mummified it.

The whole reason I went to Prada Marfa was to see what the back of it looked like; I was distracted by this fine scene at first.

Then I saw this fence and graffiti.

And I sort of never did get the back-of-the-place shot that I intended. Some days are just like that.

You’ve probably seen photos of Prada Marfa (and here’s an explanation of it). I’ve been to the site a couple of times, but never stopped. The other day, though, I went out there for the express purpose of shooting an image of the back of it, because I couldn’t stand to think of making yet another image of the front.

The Photography Gods smiled on me, and I was able to get a non-normal image of the place.
