TLR: A story – Part 5

Dean woke.  At least he thought he was awake, it was dark around him.  As he eyes adjusted he realized he was in his office at home.  He heard a door.

Hi!  I’m home.  Dean?  Are you here?  Why is it dark in here?

A light went on in the kitchen sending a glow into the office.  Dean sat up.

“God Damn!” he heard from the kitchen “Why the hell are these groceries just lying on the floor!  Dean?!”

“I’m here” he said still trying to get to grips with where here was and started to sit up.

“What are you doing?  The groceries are not put away. What’s going on?  The place is in darkness?”

She appeared in the doorway. Continue reading “TLR: A story – Part 5”

TLR: A story – Part 4

Dean awoke.  He stretched out, feeling for Sarah and remembered she’d left early for work.  He hated it when she had to work on a Saturday.  It meant missing out on a warm cozy wake up.  The sheet next to him was already cold.  He thought about going back to sleep but he knew he had too much to do and slowly got himself up.  He stumbled out of the bedroom heading to the kitchen.  Coffee was definitely first on the list.

On the way he glanced in the office.

The camera sat on the shelf.

He stopped and stared.  Something was different.  God damn it, the viewfinder was open.  He didn’t dream that.  But then why couldn’t he remember what happened? Continue reading “TLR: A story – Part 4”

TLR: A story – Part 3

“Babe I’m home, sorry I’m late you know how the girls are; Sheryl wouldn’t stop talking about here new dining suite.  How did you get on with the photos?  Babe?”

Dean woke just as Sarah walked in the room.

“Were you asleep? She said

“Err yes, I think so. I was…” He looked at the camera on the shelf, confused. Continue reading “TLR: A story – Part 3”

TLR: A story – Part 2

It had been a few weeks since Dean had bought the camera.  It sat on the shelf in his office.  Sarah had got over her initial shock at what he had wasted twenty dollars on and had mostly stopped bringing it up during conversations with their friends; mostly.

Not that she was mean about it, she wasn’t that bad.  He loved her very much and he knew he wasn’t always easy to get along with.  He was glad she put up with him and they had a lot of fun together.

Still, it was still a handy weapon to use should the situation arise and he cringed at the thought of her using it against him again, ridiculing him in front of his friends.  Continue reading “TLR: A story – Part 2”

TLR: A story – Part 1

As Dean turned towards the door he considered why he had never been in this store before.  It was not far from home and he regularly drove past.   It was partly due to the irregular hours the store seemed to keep as on previous times when he had driven by with the hope of actually calling in, it had been closed.

This time however it was definitely open.

It was an old shop, probably built early last century, it’s sometimes difficult to tell the age of buildings in LA as they often mimicked previous eras and once they became old enough to crack the woodwork and fade the paint it was not always clear.

The door opened smoothly and without the cliche of a creak despite having cracked and fading blue paint, which showed layers of previous coats trying to demonstrate they still have colour to share, and the glass being covered with dust such that seeing through it into the world beyond was almost impossible.

Coming soon…

As we approach All Hallows’ Eve I have two things planned starting tomorrow; first off a series of scary and/or creepy images to get us in the mood and second, a departure from the normal themes of this blog, a short story which will be serialized throughout the week so look out for ‘TLR: A storyContinue reading “Coming soon…”

New member of the family

I don’t normally post pictures of family members or close friends and there really is no need for yet another dog picture on the internet but…

This is Patch, our new dog we got from a rescue centre last week.  He’s a Border Collie, Blue Heeler cross and full of energy

Not a great shot, the lighting was poor at that time of night; not doubt a better opportunity will come

 

Cameras: Contax III with Kiev 2.0

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I picked this up a while ago and only recently got around to trying it. Originally I got this as a body only and subsequently bought a Kiev lens just to be able to use it; if I liked it I would think about something more original.  Continue reading “Cameras: Contax III with Kiev 2.0”
