The Imperial

Pillars of carrara, winters permanence
Architect of Acumen
Under a black & silver stratus stands
By day, the’ attendance
Night, the sentiment of wait.
Concierge of moment
The infinite jewel
So is preserved by the silent restorer
Of past, present, and tomorrow.

Middle Of Nowhere

Middle Of  Nowhere.3

Hello all. More  from  my  brother  from a  different  mother..enjoy!
As  you  all know I have  an affinity for  the  old and  decrepit ..hell i’m  halfway there myself.  Almost  anything  old  and  dusty  just  captures  my  attention  faster  than  shiny  and  new. I think its the  history  I can  imagine  in each  of them. Where  has  it  been, who  owned  it  first  and  how  long  of a  journey  did  it  take  to  get  down the  road  and  to  the spot  where  I’m seeing  it.
Old Things
I love old things, don’t ask me why
They just seen to take my fancy
Old pictures in old trunks in attics
With old names like Nancy
Old love letters tell a story
Of a broken heart
A soldier boy far away home
From his love he had to part
Old barns falling down
Too long they have gone unattended
Broken doors, rotting floors
Never will they be mended
Old memories from the past
Some happy and some sad
Stories of long ago ancestors
What hard times they had
Old things tell me of the past
But I know I must move on
They hold a place within my heart
And I’ll never be alone.

journeys

Journey start

8f8 has created something again that is just spectacular, that being the unexpected journey collection. I know a lot of folks will probably do trains  on this one..but..well..I wanted something different. Could i have gotten dressed and  also posed with the collection..sure  could  have..but..again..I wanted to get the focus  on the collection itself not what I was wearing. So I kept  it plain and clean while adding, I hope, just enough of a background to capture what I saw when given the collection..hopefully..you see it as well.
