Three-story façade.

Huntington Ashland Ironton Ect (sic) &c!

Among Tim Kiser's albums



  • Three-story façade.

    Look at the two colors of the coatings of industrial porcelain enamel that were applied to these steel panels for this design idea for this building. ------------------------ In downtown Huntington, West Virginia, on December 22nd, 2008, a building on t…

  • Very very sacred.

    The congregants might worship even harder if the diagonal cross entryway had a sculpture of a crucified body mounted on it. People seem to be forgetting about Jesus. ----------------------- In Huntington, West Virginia, on December 22nd, 2008, the "Fun…

  • Dec. 2008, trying to sell the board of realtors.

    I guess I kind of missed the peak time for humorous internet photocommentaries about this kind of stuff. But really what might I have gained if I hadn't, anyhow? As of this Google driveby the banner was down and the Board of Realtors sign was gone so I…


  • Further balkanization of the face.

    "None of your small hair areas have EVER experienced a pampering as intense and luxurious as what we've got planned for your eyebrows," on and on. "This is going to become an addiction!" ----------------------- In downtown Ashland, Kentucky, on Decembe…

  • Pancakes and french fries with treeleaves and water.

    This is bleak and grim; the food is ruined. Open-close styrofoam food trays are funny-looking from certain perspectives, their lids bobbing with every passing breeze. This is what I came to downtown Ashland Kentucky to see I suppose; anyone probably cou…

  • Descent of cold yellow.

    We can see the yellow paint's getting all onto the window and fanblades and sidewalk; it don't matter, why would it. ----------------------- In downtown Ashland, Kentucky, on December 23rd, 2011, at the northeast corner of 13th Street (U.S. Route 60) an…


  • Riverfront limousine of Ohio River.

    Everybody would understand it to be an accident if another vehicle were to careen into it and smash it all to hell, what with conditions being so slippery. ----------------------- In downtown Greenup, Kentucky, on December 23rd, 2010, a circa-1994 Linco…

  • If you know anything about music boxes and expresses, you already know exactly what it means to board and ride a "music box express."

    It can't have been easy to have attached that looong awning to that brick wall. And dang that lettering's sure narrowly squished, ay? ----------------------- In downtown Ironton, Ohio, on January 2nd, 2011, at the northeast corner of North 4th Street a…

  • A message from the dead of the city of South Shore, Kentucky.

    Move quickly along and DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT spend a bunch of your life's precious time trying to figure out what it says, neither at the physical site nor upon the internet. The bottom word is probably RESTAURANT, even though the letters where the AU wou…


  • Light-up plastic tooting on the street at the flag.

    This picture was my best effort at describing the experience of Christmas 2010 in Greenup, Kentucky. I slightly effed up the framing of the distant stopsign yonder; I should've done a better job of framing it in the hole in the angel's dress. According…

  • Home sweet 304!

    West Virginians are proud of 304 and they proclaim the number everyplace as a shorthand expression of identity. I'm able to picture paintmen in cherrypickers, lifted to the tops of pump canopies statewide. The upside-down apostrophe in "FERGUSON,S TIRE'…

  • Sand dune landscape of the construction site of an "O'Reilly Auto Parts" biz, across the street from an existing "Advance Auto Parts" biz.

    The U.S. is weird and embarrassing!, viz: O'Reilly Auto Parts: 450 Washington Ave., Huntington, WV 25717 Advance Auto Parts: 455 Washington Ave., Huntington, WV 25717 But I enjoyed looking at the construction site's sand in the winter sunshine. The cons…


  • Trudging to CVS again.

    There at the right, I flipped open the dumpster lid to help the picture. The word "pharmacy" is interrupted by one of the blue escutcheons at the tops of the downspouts. The interruption doesn't hurt anything because once you've decided to clutter up yo…

  • Gouging itself with an ice cream scoop. Unusual "tinsel merkin" idea.

    I am staring directly into the curvaceous hips of the future of american christmas crap — and thoroughly enjoying the view! ----------------------- In Huntington, West Virginia, on January 2nd, 2011, in a storefront display window on the east side of We…

  • Site-specific art of 1977 longplayer "You're the Only Dancer": Jackie DeShannon, in bowl-bangs-down-to-her-eyebrows, poses wearing a white blazer with nothing underneath.

    "You're the only dancer" is a catchphrase that I wish would catch back on. For my yard I need a large painting of the cover of Howard Jones's 1985 longplayer Dream Into Action, I always admired Howard Jones's deliberate earnesty [sic]. The site-specif…


  • The storefront of "EZ-EE Storage" in Huntington, West Virginia.

    The typical "rows and rows of units" style of buildings that Americans associate with storage-rental businesses are hidden away in the backyard, but I want the units that look like a house, even though I figure they probably cost more to rent? The bldg s…

  • Rolling up to Nida's Therapeutic Massage.

    "But be careful and go slow when you're coming back down — we've been noticing that for some of the wheelchairs it doesn't take very much of a miscalculation to end up with one of your front wheels hanging over the dropoff." -------------------- In Hu…

  • "Exercising caution to the passing wind" or something.

    The breeze in which this abandoned McDonald's's cautiontapes are fluttering is that of the propulsive flatus being given off by the happy customers of the shiny new replacement McDonald's a coupla blocks away. But I feel that this commercial parcel'll…
