Merry Christmas 2011 / Happy New Year 2012

Merry Christmas, heading into 2012, a year I never thought would come. Meanwhile downtown Detroit, a streetside window on Woodward sends it’s bright light holiday chill into the air. Plenty of seats left for singing, souping and lecturing.

The Party Is Over

And Happy New Year. Storefront remnants of a packaged Christmas display. Left for years perhaps, sun bent and vacant; Louisville, KY. Back to work everyone. Shot on M6 with PolaPan 35mm.

Season’s Greetings From Your Sinclair Dealer

And even more greetings from a Christmas Day drive thru the backroads, all fossil-powered and very traditional. That’s Santa back there with the Misses, behind the dinosaur.

The Christmas Bulb

Nearing the end of the year, a time to sit back and edit all those shots that stretch years into the past. Many not scanned, resting like cordwood on contact sheets under camera parts and cans of air. Changed my OS so many times that I’m sure the scanner needs emergency driver updates too. But here, I’ve found the secret to Santa’s lead sleigh-runner. And in case I become forgetful, Merry Christmas! Bring on 2010.
