Ramshackle Ruralty

With the lack of much to say, I’m just going to post two photos from my archives that I enjoy. They are subjects that I found while driving around on rural roads a couple of years back. From a creative standpoint they are surely lacking, but when I look at the prints I made of them I just find them…

One week later and it’s a different scene

The photos I took in my last post were taken in a nearby park. One week after I took those photos, the scene totally changed – we had snow! Though the idea of snow in December in Pennsylvania doesn’t sound unusual, it has been a rarity the last few years. An inch or two or a dusting here or there…

The Faces of Randyland

I know it has been a long time since I’ve posted here and for that, if anyone noticed, I apologize. Though I haven’t been very creative for some time now, I have still been taking photographs throughout the time gone. Good or bad, interesting or not. Few things drive my photographic creativity in my daily life. I work in predominately…

Cubism

In my last post that I titled a whirlwind of activity I found that I failed to mention any activity. Since the post before that one, my old computer died and I had to get a new one and start all over with installing programs, getting used to Windows 10, reinstalling programs, getting aggravated with windows 10, finding workarounds to…

A whirlwind of activity

I know it’s been over a month since my last post and honestly I never realized how fast time was flying by. I surprised I still have a few visitors every day because it would appear that I abandoned this site. But I’m still here! Well, for the time being at least. I have an idea for another site more…

A quick checkup on the creepy factor

I had this post in draft for almost a week and couldn’t think of anything to say to add to the photo, so I just let it linger there for a while until I came up with something. Anything. Since it’s been a week and I had no creative writing juices flowing, I’ll just have to put up something. I took this photo…

Fat man in the bathtub

And I’m sure he would have the blues if he was in this tub. Just another one of the many old bathtubs found throughout rural areas. This particular one has a spring emptying into it, most likely used for cattle at some point. I can’t show this photo without some Little Feat

Not a poet and I know it

Enough haiku silliness, time to get back to normal photography. I’m starting off spring with a nice texturally image of old wood and black rubber. I was drawn to this scene because of the old tire that the tree grew around. Although you can’t see it in this photo that is a real 15′ tree, with branches and everything, that the…

People who need people

I have been looking at a lot of photography lately. And I mean a LOT!  It is my season to enter competitions and, in turn, reviewing the results of past competitions. The one thing I noticed is that judges really like photos with a human element. That’s really great considering I rarely have any people in my photographs. Probably because…
