mclouth steel

and i am sitting here
on a sunday afternoon
typing my way
seeing my way
and i have rediscovered this image from several years ago
time standing still...
no more steel
or iron
or sweat
only the hard
deafening silence
of yesterday
waiting
for the furnaces
or the workmen
or maybe even the wrecking ball?
sitting here again
typing
and blogging
and waiting....

i found this scan

of the lakeside trailer park
demolished by detroit
last i checked
the land was sitting there
waiting
safe from itself
protected by a fence
and i think i shot this in 2004
on film
say it with me,"f i l m"
that's right
anyway.....

and so we move in to the nautical portion of the program

....so many memories
for me
more good ones then bad
back before the innocence was lost
or squandered
and had i known then
how precious those times were
i would have taken up photography so much sooner
and maybe paid more attention too.....

abandoned apartments

the palmer park divide
6mile
McNichols
some called this area the gayborhood
some of detroit's best architecture
can be found in and around the palmer park area
and some of it's most beautiful abandoned structures can be found there too....
