The view from Haworth

This comes from one of the back roads of Haworth, traveling west. At the edge of town, West Lane heads down the hillside toward these farms on the opposite side of the valley, while Cemetery Road continues to curve along the top of the hillside. I photographed this area near the suggested lookout, which I don’t normally like to do, but it’s nice to get a standard shot of a view every now and again. I’d have to imagine the Bronte sisters came across this place from time to time, as they lived about a mile down the road.

Hotel block, NYC

I’m not very fond of hotels. They seem to stand against everything it means to be in a place, but if you want to visit they’re your lifeline. Big and vapid, they offer just enough to support life, but never enough for a full one. Even when luxurious I find them culturally bleak, artistically flawed. In their dry-eyed, 24-hour spin they present a microcosm of extremes: wasteful opulence against the squeaky wheels of myriad laundry carts. A view through a dirty window.

Left on a mountain

It doesn’t seem like a normal thing to do, but when asked I couldn’t refuse. She wanted to know if I’d like to be dropped off on the side of the mountain while she went to fetch others. You could never expect that to be the next question you’re going to be asked, so, after letting it sink in for a few seconds, of course I said yes. They left me in a field of scrub with a sharp drop off about a quarter of a mile out. Cars were whipping by up above on the ridge. I don’t think this is a South African tradition, but there I was on a mountainside for 45 minutes. We all kind of laughed when I was picked up.

Skyline on a platter

I almost ran out of time to post today. This would’ve marked my first time missing my 24-hour window, as I post one photo every day… but here it is, done! Minutes to spare. I kind of crash edited this old favorite in order to make it, but I’m happy to post this photo, finally. It’s been lying around for about 10-plus months.

This is the view out a hospital window in Park Ridge, which could leave a hint about a previous photo I took and posted maybe a month or so ago. I know, that’s vague. This is Chicago at sun up, sitting on the desktop. It took 10 minutes to frame, maybe 10 seconds to shoot.

Understated sunrise

I woke early on my final day in Florida hoping some evening storms would leave a dramatic sky. It didn’t happen, but what was left looked serene and held beauty in a simple way. I’m planning a photo shoot with a friend in Chicago to capture downtown at sunrise in the coming weeks. We’re sure to find drama with the buildings against the first light.

The break room

Nobody ever uses the break room at our office. I’m not sure why.
