Route 22, Delmont

It’s been a little quiet here on the blog since we had computer problems sometime in mid-December. We fixed that problem, updated some software, and hell: I feel like a new person all ready to kick some new year’s ass! I used that time to work a lot over the holidays, but also take a small break from social media. Sure, I peeked in each day to see what was going on, what people are up to – but I tried not to get sucked into the vortex. I’m starting off the year doing three things that put me out of my comfort zone: pitching a magazine article to a publication I admire; shooting the wedding ceremony of an old friend; and writing a TABLE article in a week while working full-time. This is the year I turn forty, and if I make one resolution to myself it is this: proceed with fearlessness.

I do love your stairs motif: it always works. Is the Chinatown Inn open? the windows look covered with dark plastic or something. All the photos are atmospheric–the house on Neville Island actually looks crooked! Speaking of fearlessness, thought you would enjoy Woody Gurthrie’s New Years Resolutions–http://www.businessinsider.com/woody-guthries-new-years-resolutions-2013-12

There are so many “stairs to nowhere” in this neck of the woods that it always makes me wonder what houses stood there before? I think the house in that last photo may be crooked, it’s been unoccupied for so many years! Chinatown Inn is still open, but in a building next door – I think this was their old location. Beautiful sign, a relic from way back for sure. Thanks for the link too – happy new year, Michael!
