This is a dirt and gravel yard, and I'm sure they do a very good business. But I bet that if you let boys of a certain age in, for a large fee, and let them just move dirt around they would do even better.
This is only here to tell a story. I was trying to get another picture and stepped of the sidewalk onto a grass strip. As I focused I felt this and looked down. I jumped five feet because it looked like a coiled snake.
I was walking along 1st Street and found this little park. The statue here was backlit severely and all I could make out was the silhouette. I looked like a monstrous head. Upon closer inspection it turned out to be a man riding a dolphin.
I have watched this house for years. It was built during the housing boom. The owners apparently wanted all the space they could get, so they built to the edge of the sidewalk. For their windows they chose glass bricks, I would guess for privacy. The result is this trio of windows. I imagine that from the inside there would be nice diffused light from these windows. But not being able to see out would bother me a lot (I'm a photographer). I do like the sort of abstracts of houseplants from the outside.
My first day walking around with the Olympus Om-1 Em-5. Had the Leica 25mm on it and was greeted with incredibly clear light for here, as the humidity left for a day. I tried the bottom picture in black and white but the truck disappeared.
