A Rose For Myself (And You Too!)

White Rose

It has been raining hard for 2 days now. I slept really badly last night, my knees hurt and I have a headache. Can you guess that right now I am feeling sorry for myself. All this gloom I’m sure will pass but to hasten its departure I’m sending myself a pretty rose.

I’m sending it to you too dear reader because you deserve a flower too!

Taking pictures is everywhere now, done by everybody, and I can’t help but think the whole photographic industry hasn’t yet figured out what all this snapping means. I know I haven’t.

A Miner’s Shack Abstract

I took this photograph in Death Valley, California where there was, for a while, a thriving borax mining economy. Working in a place where the summer temperatures very often rise to well over a 100 degrees fahrenheit was terribly hard and when the valley mining companies couldn’t get investors because richer deposits were found elsewhere, the mines closed.

All that is left now are the broken remnants of human habitation where the pitiless sun shines through broken windows making harsh abstracts in the glare.

The tragedy of this guy’s life is that he does this all day every day. He’s a nice man really but, the chase for money and the attendant unease that that it brings shrinks his world badly.
