Cross-Gartered Traffic Cones and Friends


January 12, 2019

On the same day I harvested the dumpster photographs for the previous post, I came across a few batches of traffic cones to add to my collection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


If You Go to Boston . . .


December 10, 2018

Because of the kindness of three people, I am privileged (along with 61 other photographers) to be exhibiting a photograph in the Passageway of the Lafayette City Center in Boston. The Passageway links Macy’s with the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The show, Abstraction Attraction, is up now through May 5, 2019. Note that you can see all the photographs online. If you happen to be in the Passageway during this time and see my photo, please let me know! The photographs were selected by Paula Tognarelli, executive director and curator of the Griffin Museum of Photography. Here’s the chosen photo, The Fish Bins of Cortez 38, and a link to other fish-bin photos. Big thanks to Stephen Tomasko, who sent me the entry information, and to my friends Katie Brown and Robert Taylor, who prompted Stephen by telling him that I “was a photographer, too.”


A Crowd of Cones


October 14, 2018

How I ever got started with traffic cones, I don’t know. But I’ve been photographing them for many years. The first photo, below, just happens to have been taken last year outside the Wisconsin State Capitol, whose interior recently made an appearance on this blog.

The Farmhouse 1


August 19, 2018

Some of you will remember the photographs of the Pennsylvania farmhouse windows taken last year. (See here and here and here.) Last year my best intentions to take many photographs inside the house were thwarted by my wish instead to socialize and play at other things. This year I was a bit more disciplined but, I think, not to the real detriment of playing games and schmoozing. Here’s the beginning of this year’s harvest of Pennsylvania farmhouse photographs.

As I’ve said before: ah, what you learn putting together a blog post. Click on this image to see it larger, and you will notice more detail on these squiggly lines. Guessing these could be the tracks of snails that feed on algae, that’s what I Googled. Here’s what I found: http://www.flickriver.com/groups/radula_tracks/pool/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radula. The Wikipedia page says that the squiggly lines are made by the snail’s radula, “an anatomical structure that is used by mollusks for feeding, sometimes compared to a tongue.” The tracks are visible in the two previous posts, too, but not as clearly.
