slices of saturday

I'm all out of words right now so you'll have to read the pictures.

OK, so that silence was short lived! I was just reading the comments and they reminded me how much I love taking photos of old buildings in the grittier parts of the city. On Saturday there was this undercover bicycle cop who was keeping an eye on me. The car would stop and I'd hop out to take photos of what looked like nothing to the casual observer while he oh-so-casually observed. I should wear a t-shirt that says 'artist at work' (and how pretentious would that be?), then they could just shake their heads and get on with looking for real criminals.

I thought that I smelled a skunk, but I've just checked, and there doesn't seem to be one here. :)

If you have any old building photos that might be good as reference photos for drawings then I'd be mighty interested in seeing them! Unfortunately, I live in a city that is relatively modern and we don't have these types of tenements here.

Love these. I am also partial to the middle one because it looks to flat - as if the colors are all on one plane. And the color contrasts are nice.

I do love the effects you give to your photos.
I'm now all caught up with your posts. Love the youtube
and your sons thong. Perhaps he is as creative as you?

Or maybe we should all wear a t-shirt with "I'm a photoblogger" on it... and on the back: "Do you want your photo to be on the net?" This way maybe everybody will go away... :O)
