LoCreShiMo 2017 – Blessed Virgin Mary

Blessed Virgin
November 24, 2017

We were walking around downtown Monterey at night, and suddenly found ourselves on the wrong side of the street, where the sidewalk suddenly stopped and turned to dirt. Not wanting cross in the middle of the block, we continued down the hill, alongside a very tall wall. It turned out that the wall belonged to San Carlos Cathedral. When we turned the corner at the end of it, we found…

LoCreShiMo 2017 – Ray at the ocean

We took a road trip to Pacific Grove, CA, to spend Thanksgiving with Megan’s brother and his family. Clocking at at almost 12 hours each way, I’m pretty sure it was the most time he’s spent in the car in one go. After eating Thanksgiving dinner, everyone decided to go for a walk down to the beach. The sun was already pretty low when we got there at 4:30, and…

LoCreShiMo 2017 – Doll Cabal

Doll Cabal
November 16, 2017

Keeping in the vein of creepy doll photos, here’s another one from the basement of Hanny’s, in downtown Phoenix. It’s got everything that I used to love taking photos of: Old dolls, chain link fences, any kind of unfinished industrial interior, and basement lighting. Hard to go wrong with any of that. I imagine this as some kind of basement of misfit dolls, where they hide out and extort people…

It’s been many, many years since I shot my Reverend Bob series, which contained a few creepy doll photos. So when some friends took me to Hanny’s in downtown Phoenix, and showed me this fine memorial in the basement, I couldn’t resist snapping a pic. The story goes that back in the 60’s, a young girl ran off from her parents, and found her way into the stairwell to the…

LoCreShiMo 2017 - Megan
November 9, 2017

I used to do a lot of vector art, where I would take a base photograph, reduce it to just the colors that I wanted to use, and then simplify and tweak the lines as needed. Some pics would take hours, and some would take days. Unfortunately, I don’t really have days to spend on a single image for CreShi, so I had to keep this one fairly simple. I…

Toby and the rapacious monkey (Part 1)

Toby’s lungs were on fire, breathing hard from the exertion of running so hard. One after another, his feet pounded the cobblestones, carrying him as fast as he could move them. He didn’t even dare to glance behind him, not wanting to risk slowing down, or worse, tripping. In his mind, he imagined the outstretched arms of the constables behind him, hands reaching to grab him by the collar and…

Dutch Harbor (#16)

99/99 - 99 words about 99 things
November 7, 2017

A young man stepped off the boat, walking toward the hills. The crew had gone to the bar, but too young to drink, he had stayed behind. He didn’t mind. There was no privacy on the boat, no quiet, and the mountain had been calling him for days. His only boots were for working the ship, not suited for hiking, but they sufficed. He climbed for hours, unheeding of the…
