I kinda liked the lines… particularly the bridge’s cast-shadow (would’ve been nice to catch a train passing by, though). Have a great weekend, everyone!

Jack Whitman (after being thrown off a train): “Wouldn’t it be great if we heard a train go by in the distance?”

Peter Whitman: “Not really.”

Francis Whitman: “It’d probably be annoying.”

Under the Bridge

Looks like it’s time for the big Thursday show. And Chili Peppers. Red hot ones. More stuff Monday… have a great weekend, everyone!

Under the bridge downtown…

Is where I drew some blood…

Under the bridge downtown…

I could not get enough…

Under the bridge downtown…

Forgot about my love…

Under the bridge downtown…

I gave my life away…

Japanese Garden

Here’s a photo from the Japanese Garden at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Which means it must be time for a little something from an old stand-by / one of my all time favorite films: ‘Load up the random Lost in Translation quote! AND… SCENE!’

Kelly: “John, John. You are my favorite photographer. ”

John: “Ohhh… ”

Kelly: “No. You are! I only want you to shoot me. It’s true! Oh my God… I have the worst B.O. right now, I’m sorry!”

Minnesota Bridge

So, this is a bridge… somewhere… in Minnesota. I think.  I’m having a difficult time remembering for sure… it’s been a while since the seventies (at least two years before my time, anyway).  Yeah… I’m still the dates, too.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Stephanie Mangano: “Nice move. Did you make that up?”

Tony Manero: “Yeah, well, I saw it on TV first, then I made it up. ”

Ah yes, another digital photo I’ve massacred in Photoshop. I’m like the Hulk Hogan of… over-editing. Anyway, I shot this beast on a bridge spanning  the Red River – somewhere between Grand Forks North Dakota and East Grand Forks Minnesota. Inter-domestic waters, as they don’t say (or… over them, I guess).

And speaking of  destruction… ‘which photo is next?! Whatcha’ gonna’ do when these 4 inch pythons come for you, borther’?!
