The Unseen

Hello and Good Morning all,

 

 Sorry about not posting something a bit sooner.  It has been bit hectic with life in general. But I finally had some time to get out and do a photo/drive walk around town. This time it was more of a  theme of the unseen in our town. Things we drive by every day and never take notice of.

Beauty and decay is right on front of our face and sometimes we choose to ignore both. For what ever reason it may be, neither should  not be ignored. You can find beauty in decay if you look!

Here is a selection of some of the images I took from my last adventure.

This image above is of a halved mobile home just sitting on some land on the outskirts of town. IT's filled all kinds of trash and debris. The wind catching the plastic is what caught my eye..

This is just a small building sitting across the street from some houses. From the look of it, it was a storage building of some kind I think. It had shelves and some piping inside.

Image of an old Antique store on the outskirts of town. I have seen cars there but never an open sign or anyone ever inside it. But it sure is interesting looking. There is actually another build just tot right of this as well. But it has some interesting stuff all around it.

These next series of images were all taken in the same vicinity of each other. They kind of represent some of the resemblance of the old west and how the herds of cattle were moved across the paints to me. Plus a few shots of the actual cows. Yes, if your not from here and for the readers. They cows here are allowed to mainly free roam, no fences. So it is not uncommon to see several cows by the side of the road grazing. So enjoy the images.

So, after looking at these images, I hope it stirs something inside you to get out and find the beauty in everything and not to overlook what is in front of you. You might have to look for it, but it is there. All images were taken in and around Carlsbad New Mexico. Kodak film was used for all images.

 

Have a great day everyone.

 

BnL!
