Angry Red Planet

UntitledWatching trash on a tube TV in the studio a while back. I think this is around the time that television broadcasts went digital and I was obsessed with the station ThisTV.

Still Waiting

Regional Railway Punk RockerThis is another digital picture that I shot more than a decade ago, and another situation where I was waiting for a train. I used to rely on SEPTA’s regional railway to get to work. This was before the price and the delays became more than I could bear. Wet leaves on the tracks are a common excuse for tardiness. There was also the pleasure of sharing a car with the joyless commuters who personally enforced the rules of The Quiet Car. I switched to the subway and bus lines which are far from perfect, but preferable to the regional rail.

Pat Benatar, Junior pictured above was probably headed back home to the suburbs after taking in some urban verisimilitude. She probably went to South Street — the hippest street in town.

I shot this back in March 18, 2010 which doesn’t seem like a long time ago, but it feels like a lifetime ago.

Waiting

WaitingI shot this while waiting for the subway a little over 11 years ago and promptly forgot about it. I guess that is what happens when you shoot thousands of pictures. Most of them are forgotten including the analog shots. I found this the other day when I was poking around a virtual pile of digital photos. I thought it was sort of interesting so I did some digital developing of this image with the superlative image editor Affinity Photo.

I shot this on April 23, 2010. It was a Friday. It seems like a lifetime ago.

A Capewell Descendant Reaches Out

One of the things I’ve said about the internet and our website in particular is that there is always a new reader out there somewhere. Even if there is an article I published years ago, it’s always brand new to a fresh pair of eyes. Such is the case with the series of articles I published on this site called The Capewell Glass Negative Collection.

Truck Mascots

Well, more of a bike mascot – a baseball fan who stopped in the park had the Phillie Phanatic strapped to his handlebars!

Baby Spinach White Pizza

Pizza with lots of garlic and spinach fits the bill on Meatless Mondays. If you follow the recipe, you can make an amazing pizza faster than delivery, and save some dough (pardon the pun) while you’re at it! Continue reading

Down on 7th Street

South PhillyMy son and I came upon the Zhen Ru Temple when we were meandering home from the Murphy Pool. We’ve been wandering South Philadelphia aimlessly for years, and we are still finding things and places we never knew existed.
