Ages ago I posted a pic of a painting I was working on. Unfortunately, it met an untimely end… it got wet in my garage. I scrapped it and focused on another project at the time, finishing up our demolished bathroom that had been idle for the greater part of a year since the February 2011 freeze.
Anyway finish bathroom, Christmas, New Years, my birthday, all of February 2012 and a quick trip to Lubbock passed by. Well I’m back on track and just recently started a new painting:
New, New, New!
It’s moving along pretty quick and I already have a couple of ideas stacked up behind it. I’m still photographing interesting/weird stuff that I come across and will continue to post those mini adventures as well. Finally I brought back from the dead my previous Blogger blog, the j10chronicles about my J-10 Jeep truck and moved it to a wordpress site, the NEW j10chronicles. Right now its just an archive of the previous site with a new theme. There is some activity going on with the truck that i’ll be updating soon.
Everybody has one, that special drawer that stores all the nonsense that you can’t quite place elsewhere. Chip clips, batteries, found parts of objects that you no longer have and gum…lots of gum.
Well I have the digital equivalent in photographs. Random shots that individually may not stand on their own but are just as interesting as a complete set.
Pride of the Westside, now without trees!
The pic above is a good example of momentary importance. The current owners of the Coronado Tower have decided that that after all these years the building needed some cleaning up and in the process removed all the trees making it look rather stark.
I organize things all the time. In my garage, my office and even my music collection everything has its place. I really don’t like junk drawers because really it means you have failed at putting everything in its place. With all the photographs I have taken or scanned its no different. I could go the straight sort by date route but interesting little gems would get lost in the sea of dates. in reality, photos are better grouped chronologically by event anyway. There are only a few times in your life where the exact date is important.
Everything is bigger in Texas
So that leaves me with my digital junk drawer. At least its not stacked up somewhere, blocking an exit and creating a fire hazard. Random 2011 and 2010
