Vintage Woman



I am a vintage photograph... a sepia toned image now softened and worn around the edges. 

I have withstood the tests of sunlight, dampness, and time. 

I join others in a family album for future generations to remember how I looked... and what I was like. 

I will show my smile and joy of life along with my scars that bear witness to trial and strength.

Wild Woman!

 

 

 

I am now officially a... “Wild Woman”!


I have always known it. My friends have always known of this and, through the years, have accepted and come to enjoy my artistic embracing of my weird side. Strangers have suspected and either joined in my reverie or left shaking their heads.


Either way... I am having fun. This is my ride... my journey... my circus with my monkeys!

Abandoned


 

 

There are some pretty cool sites on the internet that showcase the 'beautiful decay' of abandoned structures and locations. Abandoned America is a nice one. 

 

Also, I follow Abandoned Oregon on Facebook. It is a great page and the people seem friendly. The photographs are impressive. They accept reader contributions and today I shared some photos.

I posted a few images of an old chicken coop that sits on the property where I live. I love it for its broken beauty.

From my Camera: Celebrating Winter


 

 

It has been a rough winter. I had to pack to move because the property I live on sold to developers. Well, now I celebrate because the deal fell through. I get to stay... (until it happens again, but hopefully I will be a bit more prepared).
