Guy in traffic

I sat there ten seconds. He likely stood there twenty. It seemed like he’d been there forever.

Trump between

Stuck for words today. I’ve been feeling the need to produce photographs of late, but I’m months backed up on editing and have very little in-camera to work on. It’s like being caught between lines without a natural composition. Claustrophobic.

True for a while

I’d been mulling over the idea that time might not exist as we think we experience it and finally looked it up. I see it’s been a topic for a few years in quantum physics. Kind of makes me wonder if I actually dreamed up the idea in my head or if I’d seen it somewhere and remembered it as a memory.

That became the background for this photo – shot on Halloween of last year but left alone for a while. I knew I liked the photo, but editing immediately would be too fresh; I’d have a memory of what it was like to be there. Going back to it months later I potentially saw different things unnoticed if I remembered exactly what it was I was going for in frame. It’s kind of a sad photograph now, I think. Something about life going on as it does irregardless of anything taking place.

McDonald’s reflecting pool

This is my first post in well over a month. I had a really busy December, but I’m shocked it took me this long to get back into routinely making photographs. The hardest thing, which sounds silly, is to know how to pick up again and find momentum.

I had no idea McDonald’s could produce anything other than red-and-yellow plastic until I visited the company’s campus in Chicago’s western suburbs for a wedding. I’m not sure it’s my kind of place – it’s an oasis in the suburbs – and I can’t imagine staying there for any reason of my own, but it was nice. This is the back side of the lodge-like hotel, which overlooks this pond.
