I was browsing through my library today looking for something to post when I saw these two images. I have always considered them outtakes at first but something keeps making me return for another look.
Today, after some post processing, I decided to put them on the blog and get some feedback.
There is surely some unconscious reasoning that keeps attracting me to religious imagery. For years I have stopped to capture images of churches, crosses, graveyards and side-of-the-road tributes to lost souls.
Maybe it has something to with disappearing America - those simple ideals that have been lost forever like a classic piece of architecture being torn down or the local mom and pop business that needs to close and make way for progress.
Maybe writing this will help me understand why I make these images.
Both of these are from route 17 that runs from Virginia down into Florida - the Route 66 of the east coast....The BBQ shot in the header is also from Route 17.
