Some American Landscapes

My images to scan pile is getting unwieldy so I thought I’d put together a little show of landscape-ish photos most of which I’ve gotten in the last year or so. Click here to see them all. P.S. as there are a number of panoramas it’s probably best viewed on your desktop.

 

Kentland

Yesterday I picked up a small but interesting lot of negatives (with a few snapshots mixed in) from the estate of a young man from Kentland, Indiana in the late 1910s/early 20s. Several of the negatives had been painted over in order to vignette the subject and one actually had a a figure cut out and glued directly to the negative itself. All in all a nice little set and a welcome addition to my collection. You can see them all here.

The Readers

It’s been a cold and rainy spring in Chicago and to me that’s book weather (actually for me pretty much all weather is book weather) so I thought I’d put together a gallery of book/magazine/newspaper related photos for your viewing pleasure. Click here to see them all.

In God’s Country

Continuing the religious theme from yesterday I thought I’d put together an album of some of my favorite religion-themed photos. Just over 100 pics- from the sanctified to the ridiculous and back again. Click here to see them all.

Better Git It In Your Soul!

To get you ready for Easter weekend I thought I’d give you a little slice of life from a hardcore evangelical store front church in South L.A. (the neighborhood of Florence to be exact) in the early 70s. As L.A. legend Charles Mingus said, Better Git It in Your Soul! Click here to get sanctified.
