Tombstone City Hall: March 15, 2014

I shot this photo of Tombstone’s City Hall during our visit to the town last month. I think the exposure was either four or eight seconds long.

I kind of like it and wanted to share it. That’s all.

Enjoy,

…in this post.

Shortly after, I sent in my own Dear Photograph entry. Here it is:

Shady's Dear Photograph

Dear Photograph decided not to use the image (or at least they haven’t used it yet), so I decided to go ahead and post it here.

I’ll give you a brief explanation of what you’re looking at: In May 1989, I was in the seventh grade and attending Jackie Robinson Middle School in Milwaukee. (Sadly, it’s now an apartment complex for senior citizens.) Each year, Robinson planned a big student trip. That year, the trip was to Los Angeles.

I was lucky enough to go that year. It was my first time in L.A. and away from home, which made it both cool and terrifying all at the same time. The trip included stops at Disneyland, Griffith Park Observatory, and Universal Studios.

Yeah… Universal Studios.

There’s much more to the story than this, but the short of it is that I (stupidly) decided to run up the down escalator at Universal Studios. As fate would have it, I tripped, and my kneecap dug into the toothy edge of one of the metal steps.

Eventually, I was rushed to an emergency room (by tour bus, oddly enough) and given four stitches, but as I waited in Universal Studios for a wheelchair to take me out of the park, I shot the photo above.

What you’re seeing there is a photo of my 12-year-old leg over an image of my 34-year-old body.

So my Dear Photograph note would say this:

Dear Photograph,

Walking up a down escalator may not be the brightest idea in the world, but it makes for one hell of a great story that you will never forget.

I’d do it all over again,

PS: A big hello to all my old Robinson friends who might remember this!

Wish I had thought of it,

…hanging in Magnolia Pub & Brewery near Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco. (Click on the image for a larger version.)

I stared at the photo for awhile, inspecting each of the young faces in the audience. In doing so, I found my favorite part of the photo: this girl’s face near the front of the stage.

Love it.

She’s probably in her sixties by now,

…I finished off a cigar on our porch. It looked a lot like this:

KB gets the photo credit,

-Shady

…sent me this photo of his computer screen at work:

On his monitor is the photo of KB and me as the twins from “The Shining.” Hanging above the monitor is a poster for a Diane Arbus exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Arbus’ famous photograph of the twin girls, titled Identical Twins, Roselle, New Jersey, 1967, inspired the twins in the film.

Pretty badass.

Thanks for sending it along, Brandon!

I have a feeling this is about to start a slew of Kindle-like posts,
