Long and Lean

Fourth Street, view from the west, from Central Avenue.
On another note, I just found another, similar blog, with a similar title, oddly enough.  Only Frank's, like the local Visualingual, seems to be successful.  Granted, I've always done this just for my own edification, but, until recently, I figured I was the only person who appreciated this sort of thing, and felt a certain amount of pride about that.  But, hell, my photos aren't even very good.
Basically, I done thought I was sailing uncharted waters, when actually, I've been peeing in the kiddie pool.


  1. Whoa, whoa, whoa! How do you define success? Frank published a book about ghost signs. I sometimes use my photos as work inspiration, but the blog is mostly an exercise in looking closely, as it seems to be for you. Having a place to put all the documentation, as well as some kind of audience for it, helps me stay motivated and alert when I'm out and about, to avoid living life on auto-pilot. That's about it, really.

    You should keep on keepin' on. It's cool to see that someone else is noticing the same exact minutia that I've spotted, as well as tons that I haven't.

  2. I came to the same conclusion. See next post.
