Monuments to What?

Usually the first thing to catches the eye is the graffiti, the lighting, the angles and lastly the canvas. The mind might think of what type of person sprayed the ‘art’ or markings on the building? When did they do it? What does it mean? Any more, given the amount of such markings about town, I could care less.

These days, my eyes are drawn to the row upon row of exquisitely placed brick and mortar. The door way with the diagonal inserts, the tradesmen that created a structure so others might fulfill their enterprising dream and others might provide support for themselves and families. 

The monument of a craftsman trumps the spray can. Odds are the hands holding the spray can will never hold a brick trowel. Rationalize it how you will; I refuse to anymore.

Anarchy of ‘Art’

photography-defacing rocks-SwittersB-Tahquitz CanyonThis cave is situated in an area inhabited at least several thousand years ago. There are petroglyphs nearby. Many have been obliterated by vandals. Were those ‘art’ in the day? Graffiti in the day? Probably ordained history, authorized by the collective. Today, not so.

Headstone Maintenance

I came across this damaged headstone awhile back. Many of the headstones were 150+ plus years old. Here are a few sites on maintaining headstones: Gravestone Studies & The Camera in the Cemetery.

There is something about cemeteries that is fascinating. Old cemeteries, old explorers and pioneers. I like to explore them and piece together snippets of life and death. I always come away thinking my glimpses are so minimal in piecing together their life and passing. Nonetheless, I enjoy the visits.
