This tire photo kind of sets the whole mood up for this. I would be lying if I said I didn't find it hilarious and was laughing the whole time I was taking pictures of it, saying to Mike, "look at this, it's too perfect, this town is awful". This area of my town is so dilapidated and gross that I somehow found some way to capture beautiful photographs of the crappiness. I showed my dad them, being as he has (or had) a slight interest in photography and he didn't really get it. He said "well at least it not film!" Meaning I can just delete them and there was no harm done. I don't think he meant any ill will, PARENTS JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND, MAAAN. Ugh. Get me outta here.
This last photo was snapped while I was walking down the road, with out really thinking about it but when I saw it it really reminded me of Daniel Clowes' artwork in the Ghost World book. I decided I would edit it to be the same shade of teal the book is in, as a tribute to the book. I think it captures that vibe so well. I almost drew some fake graffiti on the garage to say "Ghost World" but I refrained.
I don't want to come off as too complain-y in this post, but I am pretty happy with how I captured my area in these photos, good, bad, or indifferent. Hoboken here I come!
