About This Time

About this time...I should explain that I really do know how to focus a camera. I do, honest.

About this time...I should explain that it really is very hot. It's almost summertime and the heat has already set in where I live.

About this time...I should explain that I really did take some *normal* pictures this weekend, and I'll let you see those...someday.

About this time...I should explain that I'm quite busy gearing up for a lot of shows and things. Really boils down to a lot of paperwork and *foof* that I have to do on my end.

About this time...I should tell you that this is a pinhole image. Yes, I know. It looks this way *on purpose.*

About this time...I should explain that I was participating in a charity event and this is one of the images I came up with. Yes, I got some "normal looking" floral shots too, but I rather like my odd suburban work.

About this time...I should really be telling you....

Until next time...

Hi Mythopolis!

They were taken to represent how the houses in the suburbs all sort of "run together." Everybody has a 3 or 4 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage home, really they all sort of look alike, although people tend to think of their house as being "special."

So, I opted to blur them up and create these sort of pinhole "suburban house blobs" to show how they are all really the same. I'm looking to reduce the houses to mere lines, blobs, basic "big" shapes, to show how they are all really just the same "cookie cutter" variety. Nothing special, really, about living in the 'burbs.

That's my intention anyway. Sort of architecture that runs together into a great big blur of uniformity.
