Yin, Yang, and the New Yorker

June 13, 2017

The almost yin-yang quality of this soup spill might look like a setup, but I don’t think it is. Whoever was bringing home lunch for her dear spouse (the bottom of the other container is beyond the picture frame) was probably not so happy about spilling it on the street. But as a recent New Yorker cartoon reminds us, tragedy is material.

Old Bank Drive-Through 5

June 5, 2017

Sunday mornings are my favorite time to go out with the camera because people are usually not where I want to be. But this Sunday was forecast to be cloudy and maybe even rainy, so I grudgingly opted for Monday. Oh, but wait! That would be Memorial Day! People might not be milling about downtown Oberlin in the early morning. Bingo. I rather quickly made my way back to the old bank drive-through and, because it had rained heavily during the night, the cement had a distinctly different look from the one it had April 30, when I took my first photographs there. And no one was around to get in my way or question me. So the series continues.
