Spade Art

How do people conceive of this sort of artistic project? To me this is like inventing the wheel. Did this artist start as a sculptor? Was this done by hand or by some programmed cutting laser? We found these at a local antique store in Evans City during Living dead Weekend. I guess I will have to go back to find out the answers to my questions.

More from Evans City

Evans City Pennsylvania has long been the epicenter of the Zombie culture. It was here that George Romero largely photographed Night of the Living Dead which is the movie that really started the zombie phenomenon. A few years ago The Living Dead Museum moved to Evans City. The museum had previously been in Monroeville Mall. Over the last three years they have had had a free three day event which features location tours, photo ops with the stars from the films,costume and car parades and other fun events.

This year I went with friends to promote my book Zombie Nights and of course I took a few pictures. Here are a few more images from the event.

Big Sur

Twice in my life I did the drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco along the Pacific Coast Highway. Once in 1968 by myself and once in the late 1990’s with my family. What was amazing is how little the area of Big Sur had changed in the thirty years between drives. It is still to this day a rugged and scenic area of unsurpassed beauty. I hope to make the drive at least once more in my lifetime. This picture was taken in the mid 1990’s about 100 miles south of Carmel California.

A Light Through The Window

This image could have been taken in a number of European cities. It was taken in Paris near the end of The 20th century. I was struck with the light coming through the top window and thinking it was a great apartment to live in. Now the steps would kill me.

En Bruges

I have never been to Venice where some people say the canals are beautiful and others say they smell like garbage or death. I have been to Amsterdam which is a beautiful city and loaded with wonderful canals which are actually part of the city’s flood control system. I have heard the canals are full of abandoned bicycles but can vouch they don’t smell of death or garbage.

Then there is Bruges which is sometimes called the Venice of the North. A magnificent ancient city with a wonderful network of canals. I have been there a number of times and each time I am struck again with the beauty of the ancient town and the cleanliness and blue waters of the canals. Everyone should visit at least once and if you can’t make the trip then at least watch the wonderful movie En Bruges and you will see what you are missing.
