Strip Mall in the Fog

Photography

People walk by and drive by this spot every day. People look at these aging strip malls and want them replaced with something new and shiny. How far in the future do we have to be to look at what was new and shiny and want it gone because it makes us feel bad.  How far in the future do we have to be to see it as a piece of history?

How beautiful it can be in the fog at dawn.

I’ve worked hard to find interesting things in my town. I’ve gotten up too early or stayed out too late. But the more I shot, the more attached I become. The process of looking is sometimes the process of loving.

Homage to X-Files

Well, it’s not from the X-files, of course. It’s from Rotary Park in Ajax. The glow at the top is not from a spaceship or a helicopter, but from the moon.  The glowing light in the background is also not a spaceship or Area 51 or anything like that. It’s the water treatment plant.

At least that’s what they claim…
