  1. Before and after – very cool. And somehow disturbing – on their own, each of your photos seem to have a timeless quality to them – as if whatever old object has been the way it looks now for the last fifty years. And yet, this is not true – change is always lurking to surprise you somehow.

  2. Indeed — and yet despite being aware of this, I am still usually broadsided by a sense of temporal dissonance whenever a subject I’ve photographed over these past few years succumbs to the decay that attracted me to it in the first place.

    It’s that little nudge from Father Time, I guess — Ha-ha, you’re getting older! And one day soon, you too shall fall.
