Wednesday Walls - Repurposed


Walls are in the news this election year.

Walls are usually built to do a job. Built right, they do their work easily. We don't think much more about it. When walls are new, we are careful about how they look.

After they have done their job for a while, they take on the wear of their life, the scars of their duties. They withstand change but succumb to adjustments, alterations. They collect a history. Here are some walls that can tell stories.

Leave a message.

Counting flowers on the wall ...that won't bother me at all ...

So for a few Tuesdays lets take a rather nostalgic look at some of these old, established, privately-owned theaters, thriving, struggling or abandoned.

Saturday's Child - Another Chair


For today, lets have a look at Saturday's Child in a different setting. Instead of finding them in their element, outside at play, let's look at a few caught on an unfamiliar stage, the photo studio.

Here they are, trying, as best they can, to "hold still" and pose the awkward way the grown-ups want.

Here they are, caught bubbling with curiosity about their surroundings, or trembling in fear of that strange photographer and that disturbing box with the big, glass eye.

Okay, I'm standing on a chair. I've always wanted to do this.

Want to know more about the photographers? Here are some in depth examinations of those industrious 19th century entrepreneurs: LOST GALLERY, The Known Photographer

Wednesday Walls - Just Another Brick

Another brick (missing) in the wall...

A loss of integrity.
