Broken Paths Friday, Mar 5 2010 

Park St. sign in Centralia, Pennsylvania.

Although most things in the small town of Centralia have been demolished, there are still some signs of what the town once was, such as this lonely and sad street sign.  Crooked and broken, it still stands to guide visitors through the deserted streets.  Haunted by the bitter memories of the past, this sign stands as a reminder that selfishness and monetary greed should not be what guides our lives.  Had people not turned a blind eye and held money above people’s lives, then perhaps this sign would not just be a guide for visitors and ghosts.

Embrace Tuesday, Mar 2 2010 

‘Embrace’ is the image of a lid of a sarcophagus in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA.  I was drawn to the touching yet haunting image of the husband and wife embracing each other.  Even in death, the love they share will carry them through whatever may lie ahead.  How many people search for that kind of love every day?  If their search was fulfilled, would they be able to navigate through life’s obstacles with more confidence and determination?  The constant and undying support of a loved one is indeed a special and wonderful thing to have, but learning to trust and believe in one’s self is priceless.

Finding the Way Monday, Feb 15 2010 

BART Station, San Fransisco Airport, California

Like so many of us that get lost in our journey through life, this traveler is searching for some help and guidance.  Will there be enough information to help him find the way?  Or indeed, are we all traveling through life’s journeys on our own?

Lone Musician Friday, Feb 12 2010 

This photograph was taking in Chinatown, San Fransisco, California.  There was a festival celebrating the Chinese New Year.  Stands selling flowers and Chinese goods could be seen along all of the streets, and hundreds of people crowded around to make some favorite purchases.  In the midst of all of this celebration sat this lone musician.  The tune he played was sorrowful, and it floated above the people’s voices desperately crying for attention, but none came.  No one paid this man any notice, and his song floated harmlessly into the clouds.  I was immediately drawn to this man and his song, yet upon reflection, I gave him as little attention as everyone else at the festival.  How many times in our lives have we turned a blind eye to those who are less fortunate or who may be in need?  Perhaps, this lonely musician can be a lesson for us all.

Perfect Landing Wednesday, Feb 3 2010 

Pelican landing on a rock cliff in La Jolla, California

A comical photograph of nature at its best.

Frontal Attack Wednesday, Feb 3 2010 

Beach at La Jolla, California

The contrast between the frontal action of the waves versus the calm seas in the distance is what makes this photograph really interesting and what, I believe, can really draw in the viewer.  It is an ever constant reminder to us that while things may seem settled in our lives, everything is still just a delicate balance and it can change drastically without even a second’s warning.  We can never get too comfortable with where things are in our lives.  Having the ability to adapt to what is given to us is indeed a great virtue and one that not many people have.

Perfect Backdrop Tuesday, Feb 2 2010 

Wildflowers at La Jolla, California

I loved the contrast between the crisp greens, whites, and yellows of the wildflowers against the blue and gray blurs of the bay in the background.  The water is indeed the perfect background.

King of Comfort Monday, Feb 1 2010 

If only we could all be as relaxed as this at some point in our lives, without a care in the world.  But, is he really as carefree as he seems?  While he does look extremely relaxed, and indeed you would have to be to have your head rest comfortably on a pair of sneakers, his eyes exude an unexplainable sadness.  What is it he experienced?  What trouble is he facing?  If only animals could talk…..

Waiting Thursday, Jan 28 2010 

O’Connor Household, Centralia, PA

I was able to visit my family home in Centralia one week before it was demolished.  This was taken in the parlor by the front door and it depicts my grandfather’s hat which had been placed on an old lamp stand.  During the years the home was vacant, someone had broken in, and the damage done to the door is clearly visible.  It is a sad reminder of what the town of Centralia has become….a homage to silent ghosts of the past.
