  • Heavy application of foam sealant here.

    Boy someone's been partyin! The foam sealant blends in visually with woodland settings better than you might expect it would, because it somewhat resembles an approximation of fungi. ----------------------- In Ypsilanti, Michigan, on May 27th, 2011, a…

  • The Ypsilanti-area business failure "Icescapes Ices & Frozen Treats," as viewed during its abandonment.

    Photography lesson idea: If I could do this all over again, I would still include the car, because I think it's important to our understanding of the scale of the building and the real-life atmosphere of its vicinity. But I would increase the amount of v…

  • A sofa I found while I was nosing around in some juniper landscaping on the edge of a Dollar Tree and Save-a-Lot shopping center.

    Ordinarily I would expect to find abandoned sofas behind a shopping center, rather than in front of one. So this was unusual. ----------------------- In Ypsilanti Charter Township, Michigan, on September 27th, 2013, next to a clothing donation box in t…


  • Such a pretty evening down here, so where is everybody!

    I can't think of anyplace else in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti metro area that has as many foil streamers to look at fluttering in the breeze of the evening sunlight, so I was surprised to find myself alone out here. Evening sunlight causes breeze. ---------…

  • Outdoor purple Caravelli Fusion suit in downtown Ypsilanti.

    Very slim-legged! Once the water dries it'll be as good as new. A creative display solution idea is the barbell weight down there. ----------------------- In downtown Ypsilanti, Michigan, on October 14th, 2013, outside Morgan Clothing on the south sid…


  • A "welcome home" arbor.

    In downtown Ypsilanti, Michigan, on October 14th, 2013, on the east side of South Huron Street, south of West Michigan Avenue. ----------------------- Library of Congress classification ideas: QK773 Climbing plants—Pictorial works. TH9732 Wire fencing—P…

  • Look at that awful old banged up Toyota Previa.

    I cannot remember why I decided not to show the entire minivan in my picture. It's possible I was worried I'd be shot by a rightwing American if I loitered for too long near the vehicle. So I composed the picture clumsily. ----------------------- In Yp…

  • Favorite oil change sign.

    This style of roadside sign is going out of style. This one is framed by a string of christmas lights. ----------------------- In Ypsilanti, Michigan, on October 14th, 2013, outside Express Quick Lube on the north side of East Michigan Avenue (Highway M…


  • A patch of city scenery in Ypsilanti.

    Here was an overgrown parking lot, a collapsing fence, an unidentified source of toxic smoke, and a stand of Ailanthus altissima. ----------------------- In Ypsilanti, Michigan, on October 14th, 2013, off the north side of East Michigan Avenue (Michigan…

  • PINK'S 'N' GREEN'S.

    DOWNSPOUT'S 'N' ELECTRIC METER'S. ----------------------- In downtown Ypsilanti, Michigan, on October 14th, 2013, in an alley east of North Washington Street, north of West Michigan Avenue. ----------------------- Library of Congress classification id…

  • Gated doors and electric meters.

    A roof over your head while you fumble with your keys in the rain. A complex network of downspouts. ----------------------- In downtown Ypsilanti, Michigan, on October 14th, 2013, in an alley east of North Washington Street, north of West Michigan Avenu…


  • Colorful fall evening in downtown Ypsilanti.

    Why haven't you visited Ypsilanti lately. ----------------------- In downtown Ypsilanti, Michigan, on October 14th, 2013, the north side of West Michigan Avenue (Highway M-17) as viewed from northeast corner of its intersection with North Adams Street.…
