Rust never sleeps 'cause who can sleep in this burn

'twas humid, but not unbearable, though good company always alleviates nuisances through a deft combination of witty dialogue & deadly ninjitsu.


















This urban idyll, adjacent to highway on & off ramps of all places, was once the abode, I was told, of a homeless man who had a pretty extensive setup. I'm sure it'll be additional parking for the city-saving casino complex soon enough.

















 

Can't even tell (almost) there's concrete all around.
























The sport of kynges.
























(Don't fear) --



















-- the reaper.



















Heavy Metal Parking Lot, the sequel.



















Day of the Triffids, the sequel.
























Grapefruit of Doom, the original.



















I wonder if these Mars rocks are valuable.
























Damn barbed wire. I really wanted to frolic in the wreckage.



















Don't push me, or I'll --



















-- behave myself, sir, yes sir. USA chants sold separately.



















Newest anti-crime measure.



















But don't forget the classics.
























Cthulhu couldn't help some of the jokers 'round here.
























Seriously.



















Commentary.



















Juxtaposition.



















Gee, thanks for ruining a perfectly sub-mediocre shot.



















The air was indeed on. Ever forward, unknown workers.

Ethan said...

The Ultimate Ecurity logo is the craziest logo I've ever seen. Crazier than the back of a $1 bill.

Flaneurial de-light.

Randal Graves said...

ethan, I think that logo could use an all-seeing eye.

jim, sometimes (every day) one just has to brave the elements and escape office warfare.

Graves, you swine!

Have you thought about National Geographic - you clearly have an eye for native anthropology.

Very cool even if it's hot. I like your juxtapositions of natural spaces and trees against the owners tendencies to fence and asphalt the world.

Return of the triffids was inspired.

Randal Graves said...

tengrain, isn't that the magazine with all the naked boobies?

susan, there's a mix of that all over, including folks whose front lawn is a plot of concrete, as if whatever grand plan there was, was executed in fits and starts.

Can't even frolic in the wreckage -- damn, I hate when that happens.

Dusty,Hells most vocal Bitch said...

Such a photographic eye you have Randal! I think Life magazine is a better fit...wait..they no longer publish Life mag do they?

Never mind...

Demeur said...

When your dreams turn to dust get out the vacuum cleaner.

Randal Graves said...

tom, oh, someday I will & then I'll show The Man who's boss by holding up a mirror.

dusty, do they publish any mags these days? Life's fine, but I was thinking Look.

demeur, seems like I'm always vacuuming.

Bibliophilia In Black said...

Oh, I liked the same shots that susan did and for the same reasons.

Yes, I'm back from the dead :)
