gerald told me

that he was an opera singer
the most talented
he worked for all of the finest opera houses in detroit
he even proved it to me-
as i walked away, he
told me that he loved me
and as i walked away,
i realized that
i believed him...

i am circumstance mixed with poor choices

drove down to michigan and trumbull,

to photograph the demolition
of the greatest ball park ever built
so sad to see it go
i wish that i was in to photography back in the 90's
to have some good photos of the old ballpark while still in use would be great
i was fortunate to get in there with a camera,
3 times over the last 2 years.....
that's better then nothing
i guess

3 wheeler

every day that passes
i'm finding myself closer
to the bottom of the barrel
with these chair pictures
i have resurrected one more
for you
most likely for me
and the walking man asked me why
why do i like these chairs
what do i see in them
and i guess that i'm not sure
but i'll keep shooting them
for all of us

i am justin's raging level of frustration


sometimes in life

you can feel God's hand reaching out to you
towards you
but often
it comes when we are neither ready
nor asking
all of the gods born in times of desperation
are deafened by the pleas of so many weak men
troubled men
you can feel God's hand touching you
when it comes
but it won't be like rain
or winter
it will be more deliberate
like thunder
like a toothache
like a broken radiator
and if you or i
are waiting for God's embrace
we can only hope that we are conscience
when it comes
not, if it comes
because we just might miss it
when we need it most, and
that would be bad
for anyone

now wouldn't it?
