my world

dear god it was cool today.  the first cool morning since april.  overcast.  perfect for a walk and a few photos.  i've been meaning to take a picture of this...down the street 2 blocks is the old jail.  it is now a lawyers office but this is still in the parking lot AND the upstairs still has bars on it.  is it a jail up there?
the best part...i was wanting more galvanized steel sheets and to the left of this i saw a big one.  i shall go there tomorrow and ask.  ....and i'm wondering, that reserved for jail cook sign looks too new to be old doesnt it?????

i dont know if you can see this, but above the door is the ten commandments.  i feel a small twist in my intestines when i see that.

oddly i see so many 'wrong' doors here.  they just are wrong. 

this is behind a house that isnt occupied.  a friend pointed this out to me, this odd childs plaything.  he loves it.  and i do too.

again...a block away.  to the right is restaurant where bovinal people eat.  the left has various and sundry places that god only knows how they stay in business.

scrap yard/recycle place just 1.5 blocks away.  i like to walk by and see if there is a good heap there for me and yes...there is

a good day. i walked. i took pictures to amuse myself.  i worked.  it rained.  a rare pop over of a few friends.  i did the best i could.

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…

dairy delight

I was perusing craigslist and saw this:

Disassembling antique barn..
All interior components that ran dairy farm.
Silo made from Ceramic Blocks. Many different uses for the ceramic blocks.
2 sets Hay hooks.
Cow stantion.
Watering bowls.
Cow dividers.
Louden Hay Dryer app. 1940's
Block and Tackle Pulleys

I started SALIVATING. I checked the site out they linked to and saw it was an antique type store/house and worried they might be off the charts expensive. Not even sure they had what I want, but those clocks and hay shelves I made from the watering bowls and hay dryer equipment are to me, precious materials and I want MORE even if I have to buy them. I'm starting to get excited, so far the emails come back saying yes, they are those bowls that I want. Yes, the picture I emailed showing the hay things I have are indeed what he has. He has about FORTY of the cow bowls at a price I can live with, my one concern is they aren't rusty or crusty enough since the ones I…
