Something very disturbing has been happening. It seems things in Phoenix that I have photographed have been disappearing!
A few weeks ago I was driving down 32nd St. in Phoenix on my way to the lab to pick up some color transparencies. I noticed that the taco place (below) I photographed last summer has been painted over in an ugly brown-green-black vertical striped pattern.
Last week I had to pick my daughter up from school so I went down 24th St., again to pick up some color transparencies at the lab, and noticed that the pawn shop I photographed last fall was being remodeled. The awnings had been completely removed and as of last week only the image below remained. This morning I was in the area again and the entire building has been completely stuccoed over.
I had thought that this peculiar phenomenon was limited to my color work, but this morning, after running a few errands and heading back to pick up my daughter from her art class I noticed that the Electric Lady Land Boutique (below) on Camelback is now vacant, too. I would now guess that black & white is not exempt, either.
She Came To Me Like In A Dream…
