Welcome to a sample of the sort of raving gibberish that emanates from time to time on my Tumblr account. If you would like to visit me there, the address is http://negativefiles.tumblr.com/
Let me know if you enjoy it.
I drove past this spot a few days ago, and this mysterious frame has now disappeared - in fact the whole building is about to disappear.
Still, the picture remains. It’s good that way, photography is.
I have noticed an alarming personal trend of late, wherein I seem to be taking a lot of pictures in and around home. Not that that isn’t an admirable pursuit in its own way, but it means that I’m not taking pictures outside of the home, which is what I think I should be doing.
Anyway, this is one of them and I like it. I wanted to show the statue in a different and unique way. You can’t actually ever see it like this, with the really thin depth of field and in black and white (and formatted vertically!).

A wonderful series from a great photographer - wish I’d bought the book way back when.
To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”
