The Long Way Home


Lost City

Braddock

This is the lost city, the places where I go when time or funds prevents us from traveling. We’ll be on the way to get groceries, or more art supplies or something to eat and always, camera in tow, for when there is something along the way: a great escape. I’ve rested a little on the blogging, focusing more on the photography and on just “being.” It is nice to feel caught-up, mostly, after a long, cold winter, and years of anxiety and grief. I am making up for stalled time.

So glad time is unstalled now. You always manage to find mystery and nuance in buidlings, roads, back alleys, and doorways. Its fascinating. I like all of these photos and even though “Line and lines” is aptly titled, I noticed lines in most of the other photos too! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Michael – it’s taken many years of living here, and learning to understand the city, rather than run away from it that has made me see it in a whole other way (I used to hate living here, years ago). I always appreciate too, how you find things in my work that make me examine it in different ways too.

Reflection, Cityscape and Line on Lines are my faves from these pics. I like the way you give them titles. It gives insight into your thinking and broadens my interpretation of each.. Lovely to see them as usual, Lisa!

thanks, katherine, that’s so nice!
i stopped for a long time giving titles photos because I find them the hardest thing to do in any kind of writing. but now I’m taking more risks and going with the first thing in mind.

Thank you! The reflection one was the last shot – I rarely resist a good mirror.

thanks, kimmmy – I promised myself that I needed to scale back, not take on as much so I could regroup. So far, it’s working ;).
