Far be it from me to capture landscapes or landmarks when visiting exotic locales. Here are my impressions of the Riverfront Arts District in Asheville, North Carolina.

This is a pretty impressive neighborhood: formerly industrial, filled with old warehouses and crisscrossed with railroad tracks (still functional.) While many of the galleries/studios were open by appointment only, many more were open and welcoming to the wandering public. There were spaces created from traditional warehouses that just dropped my jaw.

 

Love, love, love this color!

Windows and windshields in context. Best viewing: click on any image for a slide show.

I think next time it would be fun for you to see the junkyard as it: rows and rows of cars, sometimes individual cars, other times several vehicles piled up on each other.  Fully half of my shots that day were taken using a 60mm lens so few of my images are of entire cars (or piles of them) but I do have enough to give you some sense of the place.

From the Department of Shameless Self-Promotion comes this quick blurb: Your friend, Wabi Sabi, has a piece in this juried show (The 9th Annual CoPA Juried Photography Exhibition) opening Friday night in Milwaukee.

Continuing with yesterday’s theme–windows and windshields.

I’ve not created a post before that uses this format of tiling rather than individually presenting shots. I think I like it because of the gallery effect–just click on one of the images and you will get a slideshow plus the ability to comment on an individual picture if you want. Having wanted to change the theme/format/appearance of the blog for quite a while now (can you say “lazy”?) I think this will provide the nudge I need to get working on that.

I always appreciate your comments and observations.

Unless it has to do with the quality of my housekeeping. Or that I never remember to put gas in the car.

But, other than that, constructive commentary always welcomed. Cheeky commentary welcomed with enthusiasm.

Five images.

More details from the classic car junkyard. This time: windows and windshields. The images work best in full-screen view.

Last of the shots from my foggy morning walk to the Wabi Sabi farm:

guys and their dog singing a cappella polka tunes outside a deserted factory in Sheboygan.

I’m cool with that.

The back-up guys are good, but the lead singer is incredible.

Seriously.

He really has a great set of pipes.
