TGIF: Evolution

A gift of photography is the ability to capture the present not the past or the future but the now.

The world changes.  People  change - they age - they die.  Any environment changes be it human or not.  Only by returning can these changes be shown. 

Collecting and sequencing these photographic documents enable an understanding of a growth, decay, or replacement that has occurred. 

For example, consider how a specific location is modified over a period of time.

Monday Morning Coffee: Labor Day

Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws, and well-being of the country.

The date chosen was simply convenient as it is midway between the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving.

Although the day’s focus on organized labor has diminished over the years, the holiday has become a way to mark the end of the summer season.

Bit Of Bright On a Dark Day

After several days of strong hot sunlight and humid weather, today's weather is overcast with a slightly cooler northerly wind and lower humidity.  A fine time to stop and smell the flowers.

Of course there is a flag, after all this is the Midwest.

Architectural Symmetry

 A well designed and crafted red brick building.  The use of limestone details set off the brickwork and provide a sense of closure and strength to the structure.
   Geneva, Indiana

Draw a vertical line down the center of the face of the building.  The architecture is symmetric with respect to the left and right sides
