Down the Rabbit Hole
Jeff and I are slowly working on cleaning up the galleries. I have noticed that I have placed a few photos in places where they don't belong. Soon, we will be getting a revamp of our front pages. Stay tuned for our new look! In the mean time here are some samples from various galleries for your perusal.

A few weeks ago Jeff and I went early on a Sunday morning to Downtown LA in hopes of being able to snap some images of the city that is my home town, and Jeff's adopted home. Since we already have a gallery for Chicago- it seems only right that Los Angeles have her own gallery. Los Angeles is a beautiful city that often does not get the recognition she deserves. We hope you enjoy our view of the Queen of the Angels!
The photos are just about ready and the new gallery should be posted by weeks end. We have a great time when we go on these photo expeditions. In order to cover as much ground as possible we often drive up to a spot- one of us hops out and takes the desired images- while the other is often illegally parked for a moment or two. Sometimes to get just the angle we want we have to pull into driveways we aren't allowed in or buzz through neighborhoods that we would rather not be in.
Here is a peek at the new Gallery!

We are in the process of adding more photos to some of the existing galleries. I have chosen a few for the Ossuary featuring cemeteries from our road trip last summer to Arizona. The photos added are from the Seligman, Williams, Grand Canyon and Sedona cemeteries.
In addition a new gallery is being created and should be up by this weekend. Appropriately entitled Amusementorium. There is just something creepy about Carnivals. You know the sort. They pop up in open fields in town, or shopping center parking lots, much like the first one featured in the gallery.
The rides are often old, well used and each has stories to tell. About the towns they have travelled to, the people they have met, the roads they have travelled. The kissing, laughing, screaming, and vomiting that has been done in and on them.
Most of us have some sort of childhood memory about Carnivals like this, and more than one of us has likely been creeped out by the 'carnies'. On our early morning visit to capture some photos of the empty rides before opening, the carnies were actually very kind, even turned on the Ferris Wheel lights for our photos.
Here is a little preview until the full gallery is up~ Enjoy~
