What I remember about Ikea is all of the people back during the 2013 horsemeat scandal who were peer-pressured into pretending to be aghast at the idea of meatballs being made of horse, as though a meatball eater could be regarded as being dainty about wh…

Huntington, West Virginia, favorite urban floodplain of Guyandotte River.

Huntington, West Virginia, favorite urban floodplain of Guyandotte River.
The reason the area is kept mowed is so you can spot the riparian copperheads & possums before it's too late & they're on ya. The strangely-placed sidewalk is part of the "Huntingtonians, Move!" initiative undertaken in response to the city's famously po…

As a photographer I was proud that I was able to catch the brief wintertime sunlight just as it was shining into the troughs formed by the adjacencies of the yellow concrete barricades.

As a photographer I was proud that I was able to catch the brief wintertime sunlight just as it was shining into the troughs formed by the adjacencies of the yellow concrete barricades.
The orange traffic cone was put there by workmen, but the rest of the stuff between the barricades is windblown street litter that has gotten trapped. The barricades and the unhitched trailers are arranged somewhat similarly I thought.

Look close, there…

I do not want the dirt work to finish!

I do not want the dirt work to finish!
Because once the dirt and cone are gone there'll only remain the unsightly & uninspiresome gray building back there. Dirt is better!

The traffic cone in the cleft atop the dirtpile is intended to represent a star of bethlehem. The bldg is a parking gar…

North-central North Carolina, comfortably-settled Piedmont Landscape.
The region looked pretty close to how I expected it would look based on pictures I had seen. This scene is from Graham, North Carolina, and except for the missing sidewalk I felt welcomed. I felt like the Smalltown Southerners didn't mind seeing me walk…

Atlanta Hotel of Philadelphia.

Atlanta Hotel of Philadelphia.
What is it with these Southern-sympathizing Pennsylvanians such as former U.S. President James Buchanan, who shacked up with a horrid racist Alabamian senator for 15 yrs. If I owned a hotel in Philadelphia I'd name it after a fine Northern city such as Pe…
