The Burned Wall 1 (From the Archives)

April 20, 2015

In August 2004 my friend Britt and I were returning to Oberlin from an outing in Cleveland when we drove past a used-car lot that had seen a recent fire. It looked like a great place to take photographs, so we returned a few days later, cameras in hand, hoping no one was too hasty with a clean-up. Good for us, they weren’t, although things seemed a bit more tidy. The next seven photographs are of the wall beside the car lot. The technical quality of some of these photos is not terribly good; I hope the quality of the wall sort of makes up for that.

  1. Well worth the return trip. Not that I’m looking for technical problems, but I don’t see any in this photo. It looks perfectly fine to me.

    • If it goes any bigger, it falls apart. The problem is more noticeable in some of the others in this series. In some ways the Nikon D70 (which is what I used here) didn’t produce photos as good for me as the old Sony Cybershot F707.

  4. I like this one, too – the sun produced a perfect shadow!

    • Thank you, Lynn. Sometimes the sun does just what you want it to.
