Do Not Make Eye Contact!

the circle of life is not always a pretty one. at times the carnage of a predator/prey scenario being carried out can be so gruesome that even marlin perkins was known to get queezy.

Best Game Ever

5ive straight was created in the late '60's by a couple of guys who have refused to sell their genius out to the milton bradleys and hasbros of the world. so you wont find it on your target and wal mart shelves. all funding for manufacturing as well as the marketing, selling and shipping is done within their family unit. its fairly priced, easy to learn, and as they warn on their instructions: highly addictive. if youre a game player you will want to add this one to your collection. ive yet to introduce someone to it who doesnt thoroughly enjoy it. testimonials? anyone?

Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign

the signs below (and above) have been slowly deteriorating (or becoming photogenic in my opinion) in their same vertical locations for close to 100 years. this was the second time i had stopped by this old supply store with my camera. this time i was approached by the owner and given the once over by the not so welcoming greatest generationer. the building was built by his grandfather and he is quite protective of it. once i convinced him i was not a professional photographer he let me alone. he muttered something about his store having appeared in numerous national catalogs without his permission and that pictures of his property are now copyrighted. for those who know me it was all i could do to not take 2 steps back onto the public street and continue my work while laughing at him to learn the law, but i dug deep and managed to find that trace of civility and thanked him for 'allowing' me to take pictures of his precious brick work.

SERIES: My Perspectives

Welcome to some of the views that take up several minutes of my life during every 24 hour period. some of them stressful, some of them anticipated, some of them forgetful. All of them destined to be repeated tomorrow barring a winning lottery ticket or horrific car accident. Even then, one or two of these will still be in my immediate future.
