Not totally photo related, not just a journal. A bit of both.

images from a trip to St. Thomas

In a recent trip to St. Thomas, Ontario I stopped by Emslie Field. Home of the Fightin' Tomcats (said in my best Stephen 'Treadmill' Colbert voice)...

The 10th light, 2009

Sometime over the winter, abandoned, frozen and alone, I imagine two of the left field lights at the baseball stadium decided to jump. #11 was successful. #10 still hangs by a cable as thin as a Cat 5.

It was loud amongst the angles, 2009

A speaker in the stands of the empty baseball park. I wonder how many times it has announced "would the owner of a green 1982 Ford Escort, licence plate zyx 321, please return to your car. you left the lights on."

tabulas rasas, 2009

tabula rasa:
n., pl. tab·u·lae ra·sae (tăb'yə-lē' rä'sē, -zē).
1. The mind before it receives the impressions gained from experience.
2. The unformed, featureless mind in the philosophy of John Locke.
3. A need or an opportunity to start from the beginning.
The stories these blank slates of tables will tell 4-5 months from now....
