Abandoned – Part 3

Let’s return to a well worn but never worn out theme – ‘abandoned’.

But with a twist to it. These are all darkroom montage images i have done w/ abandoned stuff. I hope they amplify the straight shot of something abandoned, add a new layer of meaning.

Am I veering off into off-topic thoughts here? Perhaps, but that’s what blogs can be about. To quote Leslie Gore (recently departed) ‘it’s my party, and i’ll do what i want to’. Yes, indeed.

All of these are done in a traditional analog darkroom – there ain’t no digital here except for the scan.


Plenty of abandoned motels out there, aren’t there?
