SCRATCHING THE SURFACE



Note to Self....Go back and take a good picture of this. Odd...they built the road right on the front doorstep of this house. Things that make you go hmmmm.

I like how your photos and titles go together to point me in a direction. I really like the top picture best. It looks like the hook is in motion like a pendulum. The shadows and scratches keep my eye moving over the whole surface.

Are the first two from your basement? I love them both, can I explore down there next time I'm over? ;)

As for the third, I think as the roads are widened, older homes that were built when the roads were still dirt paths or small two lanes, they end up gradually losing their front yards as roads are expanded. May that never happen on our streets!

Ah ha! I like everything about the top one...the light, shadows, texture, markings, and the title!

Jess-Yes, they are both in the basement. It only takes a few minutes down there before I notice something else interesting. Not that it is jam packed with stuff, but there are just odd things sitting around. You are most definitely welcome to explore(I found a Cat Stevens record down there last night)...enter at your own risk!
As for the street...it just amazes me that they would just build, or expand this road right up to the house I would think tthey would knowck down the house, or move it or something. It just seemed really odd to me when I saw it, and even more odd after looking at the picture. I want to know if someone still lives there, and they just boarded up the door and windows, and go in the other way. Did someone fight to keep the house there when plans to put the road here? There is not much room on the other side, because another road comes in at a close angle to this one. It is kind of like the house and small yard are just left on the median of highway. There is just an intereting story to be learned ....or made up about this place.

Scratching the surface is my favorite of this grouping although the abandoned school desk is also appealing. I wonder what kind of statement you could make with the school desk photo... empty education, lost educational values, school is like a 100 yo basement?
