At the request of some of my friends I’ve decided to enter the world of blogging.
I titled the blog ‘decrepitude and other beautiful images’ based, sort of, on the saying of one of my favorite t-shirts…BEER GOGGLES…they turn BOW into WOW! That’s exactly what I’m trying to do…make a WOW statement and also have fun doing it. I also chose the name of my blog because of my love for the ‘old and abandoned buildings and farmhouses’ that dot the landscape of our great country. I like to visit these places and try to feel the history in the walls…to wonder what it was like growing up or working in that environment. My hope is through my images to beautify the destruction that is around me. Does that make sense?
My good friend LisaMarie once said of my images that they are too pretty…too colorful. She on the other hand likes to process her images so that they appear stark and contrasty! It works very well for her but not so much for me.
Two other friends, Spage and Dan, said my blog should be about my documenting all of the places I’ve been thrown out of or almost got arrested at. That too will be part of this blog.
Please let me know what you think. Don’t be kind just to be kind. I need and cherish constructive criticism. And JB you can call me a “dope” any time you want.
