I’ve not been out with my camera taking photo’s for a couple of months. In fact I think I’ve only been out a couple of times this year so far. The photo’s I’ve posted in the past several weeks and going forward are old files. I’ve been digging through old files from 2007-2010. About half of the photos I’m posting are re-edits from personal favorites of the past. So for those who followed me since my flickr days or my very first blog (which I deleted in 2014 to start this one) – some images may look familiar. The other half of images, you have seen recently or will see going forward, are files I’ve never processed or shared before.
Today’s post includes one of my personal all time favorites. Back in the days when I was on flickr I posted a sepia tint version that was cropped. I’ve re-edited it without the crop and without the sepia which I like better now. I also like the original color version just as much as the black and white. For me this image evokes a number of different moods. This image is from 2008 and was from an abandoned music store window (the name of the store I’ve long forgotten) with a poster of some musical artist (I don’t remember who) promoting some recent recording of the day. I like this image for it’s abstract qualities and the composition of the crumpling poster. If you look closely, you can see in the windows reflection, my car which was parked across the street – LOL. This building was on East Exchange St in Akron, OH and was demolished a couple of years later to make way for a college football stadium.

Happy Saturday August First. Today is the first in a new series of abstract compositions. I hope you enjoy them as much as I had finding them. The title is in code followed by the number in the series.
Canada Geese mate for life. This pair refused to tell me how long they’d been together but based on their observed behavior – I’d guess they weren’t newlyweds. LOL
