Hello, Goodbye?

I’m back!...kind of.

It’s been many months since my last post. During this extended break, I thought about ending this blog, and also about keeping it going. I’ve liked having the blog, but, odd as it may sound, posting with any regularity was often more of a chore than it was enjoyable, especially when I was busy with other things. That’s the main reason why I stopped posting last February.

I’ve finally arrived at a decision that makes sense for me. I will no longer be posting to this blog. I am, however, taking the ‘photo a day’ idea over to You Fill Me With Inertia, my Tumblr page.  I’ve posted a few photo a day images there already, and plan on continuing it. You Fill Me With Inertia is a mixture of my creative work, old postcards, odd old ads and photos, interesting art, and other odds and ends. I describe it as “absurdity, ephemera, and art”. It has about ten times the followers as this blog has ever had, so I’ll reach more people with the photo a day posts. I hope you check it out. If you are only interested in the photos, I’ve tagged all those posts with ‘tyler’s photo a day’, so searching for that phrase will find them.

I’m not deleting this blog, I’m going to leave it up, as it’s a nice collection of images that people may want to browse through on occasion.

See you over on Tumblr!

School Of Beauty Culture

A couple of months ago, I went to an estate sale close to my house. In an upstairs bedroom, I found a box of old Kodak B&W photo paper labeled 'do not open'. Knowing that the paper wouldn't be good, I opened the box to find about a dozen 8 X 10 B&W prints. The people running the sale told me they were their sister's photographs from a photo class, and sold me the box for $5. The photos are mostly somewhat mundane urban scenes, but printed well. I knew I'd be making collages from them.
I cut the image from an old nursing textbook, and thought it looked great on this photo. It sat unfinished in my studio for a few weeks while I looked for more things to collage with it, before I realized that it was complete as is and didn't need anything else.

Autumn Woods

Shot last October on a sunny, warm day. I would like one of those about now.
