The Mary Stuart Rogers Educational Services Gateway Building.

The Mary Stuart Rogers Educational Services Gateway Building

California State University, Stanislaus.

We’d drive past this unusual bit of modern architecture every time we visited Torri’s grandmother in Turlock, CA.

I couldn’t resist getting a few shots using the *ist D with the Lensbaby attached.

Converted to black and white in Photoshop using NIK Silver Efex Pro 2 plug-in.

Box Camera Now.

Box Camera Now

A great little book by Lukas Birk & Photographers around the world.

I spotted this book on IG’s explore. Awesome. Had to have it.

The book shipped from France. Roughly 60 or so contemporary photographers who shoot mostly portraits with the Afghan Box Camera. It’s filled with short bios of each accompanied by a handful of their pictures.

At roughly 5.5″ x 7.5″ and 1.5″ thick, the covers are made from wood and the binding is a little sensitive. I’ve already separated a few pages from the spine.

The pages are all black with white text, which makes it a bit difficult – for me personally – to read. The black works well as a background for the images, though.

Content-wise, it’s amazing. Page-after-page of breathtaking black and white portraits. 335 pages in all.

A very nice addition to the Morris family library.

Psychic, baby.

Sandwiched between Vets & Pets and a Valero gas station on El Camino at Pomeroy, this was one of a handful of neon signs behind windows of a Psychic Readings shop that was very near our old Santa Clara home. Pretty cool.

I’ve taken shots of a few of those signs over the years, but this one is my fave. I found it again digging through the archive back in May. Digital, made with the Pentax 330GS.

A quick check of Google maps and it looks like the building’s still there.

I wonder if she knew about 2020… hmmmm.
