And I want to address the controversy now before it explodes into an embarrassing scandal: The grass you see in these photos is in fact Liberty, MO grass from the campus of William Jewell College. And from two years ago. Thought I’d fess-up because I’m sure somebody will recognize it and go apoplectic on me. Then the phone starts ringing off the hook and the next thing you know the media are tramping all over my lawn…….
Added a new image to the “Open” series. This is not in Syria or Afghanistan but Hays, Kansas. Not sure if it was hit by a tornado or a wrecking ball. Maybe both… See the rest of the series HERE.
My “wretched” series of photos is growing at a glacial pace; my apologies for keeping you in the blog-o-spere on the edge of your collective seats for so many months! Hope you agree the wait was worthwhile:
When I was a kid I spent probably 90% of my time in the ditch next door to our house building dams out of mud and bricks. It’s what I’d be doing right now if the city hadn’t buried a pipe in place of our creek. So when I got a call this summer about taking photos of the new hydro-electric power plant in Lawrence, I said “Yeah, I’d love to”. Just like that. Very restrained and adult like. Built by Kissick, architecture by Sabatini.
