glass block

Abused and Blue at 15

“Threaten the oppressed and be prepared to face their onslaught, abuse them and be prepared for an even greater threat.”
— Martin Dansky

As this is my second glass block photo within a week, I’ll admit that I’ve long been a fan of glass blocks. This configuration, lighting and the dark hue of the blocks produced by the shadows of the building’s interior caught my attention when I was downtown recently. During processing, I messed around quite a bit with the texture of the wall to make the image better convey the sense of time and neglect I perceived standing at the location. I hope you like it.

Block of Ages

“That block has always been there and always will be, and my chance of getting, or achieving, anything that I long for will always be gravely reduced by the interminable existence of that block.”
–Tennessee Williams

Another image captured during my photo-walk around downtown Kissimmee the other day. These old glass blocks and the long-unoccupied tenant space behind them present both a reminder of the past and questions about the future.
