Wash and Dry Porn

On my way to work one day. I passed this used appliance business. I just had to photograph it. I had my 4X5 view camera and took a couple photos with the owners permission.  This print is a digital of a 4×5 contact print.

The man at Wendy’s

 

 

 

 

 

 

While eating at Wendy’s today this man walked in. Carrying a  plactic bag of carrots and munching on one.  He was talking to someone that wasn’t there.  Then walked over to the counter and got three donuts and a cup of coffee and sat next to me. He start his rambling converstation about God and Jesus and what all I could not tell.  After I politely told him I was not interested. I  asked if I could take his picture. He was pleased and proceded to comb his hair with his fingers. He insisted on showing this hand sign of 7 or 8 fingers. I don’t know what it means.  The only camera I had with me was my Iphone. So here you have it.  1 Nov 2010.

Update: 3/11/2011: I ran across this man ( Chuck McLaughin) again at a different  restaurant. It is beleive he is from Tennessee.

John Hull

I never met a more interesting man. The drive, energy, and  out pouring of help and friendship is astounding.  I first met John about 2009 and I have wanted to take his picture for quite sometime. Just by happenstance we ran across each other at Boarders bookstore the other day. The only camera I had was my Iphone and I had to make due with that.   So here it is.

Rodney Gas Station circa 1970 copy from print.

 

 This is a gas station auto repair in Rodney, Mi at the front counter. It just looks so timless to me I wanted to show it just because.  Notice the real coke bottle on the counter and the counterman smoking a cigar. No, no smoking here in the 70′s.
