Hillside Monday: 3/11/19

Image looking up through a glass storm door onto the porch of a house, at the corner of the roof, where two drip-edges come together. Raindrops pour off of the aluminum drip edges and down into the shot like liquid diamonds.

Hillside Monday: 1/28/19

Vivid color image of purple iris flowers (colors ranging from medium purple to very pale lavender) covered with beads of rainwater. Below the blooms, a dozen sword-like iris leaves, also dotted with raindrops, poke up into the photo. In the background lurk an old steel tub full of rusty water, a black-painted wrought-iron porch railing, a gray flagstone patio floor, a few green leaves from a trumpet vine, and the verdigris-mossy edge of a glass-topped outdoor table.

Close view of brick building facade and boarded-up corner of shop window. Plywood and 2x4 windowsill are spray-painted turquoise, with a black silhouette (in profile) of a man's head and upper torso.

Hillside Monday: 1/14/19

Dramatic (high contrast) black-and-white photo of a dark night sky, with a thick, foggy halo of light shining from behind the jagged black branches of a small tree. In the background, we see the ghostly exterior corner of a small clapboard house and the utility pole next to it.

Hillside Monday: 1/7/19

On a gray, overcast day, we look up into the green-painted, rusty steel beams under a railroad bridge, and also see the mossy concrete edge of bridge showing in the upper left corner of photo. Hanging from a thin piece of plastic fishing line is a 12-ounce Pepsi-Cola can bearing the bright red-white-and-blue standard Pepsi can design and logo. Presumably, the fishing line tied to the can is affixed somewhere on top of the railroad bridge, off camera.

Goodbye to 2018

This photo to close out the calendar year was an accident. No, really.

After applying a new red lipstick, I blotted the color with a square of toilet paper, then tossed the TP square into the toilet bowl. Several hours later, long after I’d flushed the toilet, I lifted the lid and saw the carmine-red half-kiss still on the side of the bowl.

The beauty of blazing red pigment against clean-yet-crawling-with-germs white porcelain? It’s a fitting metaphor for 2018.
