Stairway to…….

April 27, 2012

I found this place in a trail guidebook.  It’s funny that I’ve been on the trails in this area a number of times and never made my way to this area.  It’s part of the remnants of an old public campground that closed many years ago.  Most people that hike in the area follow the river trail that leads to the waterfall.  On this particular trip, I decided to seek out the hillside trail and see what was left.

Seven Pounds

I’ve been going through my photographs from the past year and found this.  When I took it, I didn’t realize the leg of the tripod was resting on the edge of the scale.

2nd and Main

October 16, 2011

I was driving around recently and saw this abandoned gas station.  When I walked around the other side of the building, I made this photograph.   I had read an interview in PDN magazine with Stephen Shore and Gregory Crewdson a few days before and saw the parallels between this scene and Shore’s “Beverly Boulevard and La Brea Avenue” photograph.

Reflections of Winter

January 28, 2011

It’s been tough photographing outside with all the snow we’ve had in the Northeast.  This is from one of the last snowstorms shooting from the deck.  I thought the reflections of light off the windows cast an interesting shadow.

Here Comes the Flood

April 1, 2010

The Pawtuxet River rages through a waterfall near Main St. in Coventry, RI.  The factory building to the left is battered and damaged.  On the other side of the bridge I’m standing on, houses and businesses are flooded and the roads are closed.

Just before the storm, I managed to get back inside with the camera.  This is one from July that I’m preparing for an exhibit.

Going through my recent archives, I found this macro shot of a toadstool.  What interested me about it is the collection of debris on top, along with what looks like the bite marks of a small animal.

Not sure when this came to be, but somebody pulled a bunch of items from what looks to be an old landfill in the middle of the woods.  There is a 1950’s car overturned near a refrigerator and a few other large items and who knows what else.  There’s a foundation from a house or barn that was once nearby, but all that surrounds today is woods.  Kind of reminds me of Shelley’s “Ozymandias.”

Another one from the fateful day.  This is the very next frame from Impressionist Landscape.  The knee hasn’t improved much and I’m still out of work.  I’m using the time to work on an upcoming exhibit.  Details to follow….
