The world is a game

Kids in South Africa playing a weekend match on a bumpy pitch. Just like Brazil.

Re-tractor

This image was posted once previously in color, but I’d forgotten about the black & white version. At the time I couldn’t decide which I liked better but was more in a color mood. I’d say about a quarter of all the photographs I make go through a rather serious examination for color or B&W testing before I post them. Color normally wins. I felt the original posting looked more like a painting and this a drawing.

You’d never understand

I’m still obsessed with photographing the sky. It’s not a phase. Usually I control myself, but lately a few good ones have floated my way. A good sky isn’t good because it makes you feel something; it’s good because it’s got you feeling nothing. It leaves you sensing your irrelevance. That’s a good sky, one that flirts with total abandonment. A good sky literally grabs you and shakes you (a few times in the best-case scenario) and then stops at once to give you the Mona Lisa – a look of contented uninhabitence, to manufacture a word. It knows you’d never understand. It’s vast and full and empty and changing, and if there’s a miniature plane mutely numbing through it, all the better.

Light liquored

There’s something very gratifying about finding a good door, especially one with the name Double Door Liquors over it – slammed shut. I think I took this on a Sunday. That might make sense.

Left for days

The first time I saw her I laughed, but after passing the shop a few times on several different days I realized they wanted her this way, which is genius. I mean, everything about it is awesome.

Father’s Day wide sky

Sunset was pretty good.

Bent backward

Sometimes, when you look up, if you keep going to the point you feel you back might break, you get a better view.

Gaps in the story

Or maybe it’s a wall.

The banality of info

I deleted everyone and everything I was following on Twitter. It seemed like it was all scurrying past me like rats through an alleyway. Eventually the list will repopulate, differently. Doing my best not to be rat-like on Madison Street today, I dropped some change in a purple-hatted man’s empty cup who said he liked my shirt. I was wearing pink. “Really, you like this,” I offered. “I want the Lord to take me right now,” he said. All I had for him was, “I think you’re gonna be alright.” He picked up and walked away.
