They are so strange and have been baffling me for years. I took them. But on what camera? They must be film. They have shimmery ghosts. They had ruffled edges. They frequently begged to be altered in some way or another. They were all kind of dim. Except the one that burst with red and yellow. I didn’t add that, it was just there. My own little movie. Both dull and scary. Devoid of meaning, yet somehow setting the stage.

Hi Catherine, these are beautiful!!! Thanks for posting. My favorite is the street corner at the top.
Hi, MP, and thank you so much, especially coming from someone like yourself who knows about taking photos! Funny thing … sometimes I try to trick a camera into doing something unusual (see Altered State: In Motion) but wasn’t trying anything with these, they were haunted of their own accord.
The corner pic (it’s the back of Hobson’s appliances) looks like something’s waiting to happen. That truck was the most beautiful color, and I loved looking at it. Alas, my mom didn’t agree and lobbied to have it removed. Then the family of groundhogs that were living under it migrated to her garden, where they happily (for them, at least) dined on fresh vegetables. The other locations I can’t remember! Though number seven looks like it might be the Hudson River.
Thank you, Anonymous!
I really like the fourth and sixth image
Hello, Samm, can’t believe I missed your comment but am very happy to read it. Now, let me see, the fourth and sixth are … inverts of each other. Intriguing choices. I find they project a bizarre sense of perspective, the black-and-white looking like twigs but the blue one bringing out more that it’s a whole big tree. Disorienting, a little. Tell me more about what you see, if you’re so inclined!
