Thank you Susan for being our hostess.


Once a Ford dealership existed on a vacant lot next to this building. I have passed by this empty space so many times walking, riding my bike, driving my car. I didn't see these windows at first. Me, the "woman of looking for details" missed this shot so often. Finally, I saw it. I thought okay I'll photograph it another day. One day went by. One month went by. One year went by. I can't remember how many years has passed since I procrastinated on documenting these windows. Finally, on this day I remembered and got in my car and drove to the spot and took these three images. I suppose I should have taken more photographs like maybe six, or eight or ten. At least I took more than one photograph. Why did I only take three shots? No clue.





I have been studying lines, shapes, textures. This photograph is replete with metal, wood, glass, shingles, shades, peeling paint, rectangles, squares, and triangles. In the future I am sure some new construction will hide this canvas perhaps even tear this building down. Change. It is what it is.

  5. I've done that...gone past the same thing for years and thought about what a great picture it would make but forgetting to take that picture. I know you only got 3 but I like the 3 you got and now, even if they do tear it down someday, they'll always be here in your photos :) Happy Outdoor Wednesday!
