The virtually empty Grand Avenue shopping mall in Milwauki 

We stepped into this glorious old shopping mall yesterday which was devoid of any stores apart from TJMax (same as TKMax if you are from the UK) and a fruit n veg cart. It’s a shame that this has become just a walkway between the carpark and another mall, hopefully they will be able to turn it around; it did look like some work was in progress.

Only took a few snaps as we were on a mission.

The Guardians

I recently had time for a few shots around Burbank city centre and as it was dark I took my tripod to stand my Mamiya C330 on.

This shot was taken outside the Police and Fire department building and is of a large bronze statue which is a tribute to the Fire and Police officers of Burbank.  It is by noted artist Shiela Cavalluzzi and was erected around 1998.

I’ve taken a low angle focussing on the firefighter with the Police officer hidden behind.

Typewriter

Saw this interesting piece at a flea market this weekend.  It’s not your typical typewriter with the letters on the end of arms that hammer down on a ribbon.  This has a wheel which rotates and tilts to the correct letter as you press the key and the brushes over a small inkpad before making its mark – clever engineering and similar in some ways to IBM’s electric ‘golf ball’ design many decades later.

Industrial landscapes

I don’t know why but industrial architecture and landscapes always interest me.  I recently took my Bessamatic out with a 50mm lens and some Delta 400 and shot these of my local power station (perhaps as a homage to Willard Van Dyke?).

Not sure they came out quite how I saw them but I am very happy with the Bessamatic; the image quality is excellent.
