If it's abandoned how come the lights are on? Maybe you should title it "Old Building, Abandoned Man"?...

Beautiful.

Amazing! The combination of the desolation and the old man raises so many questions. Subtle and powerful.

Ken Mac said...

c'mon Kevin, you gotta tell us more. Where is this? Did you carry a gun? What time of day?

Kris Cahill said...

It's beautiful, Kevin. You have the gift of giving anything you photograph light and life.

Where is this?

Scott Roeben said...

Another great mood you've captured. Nice work.

Hauntingly, beautiful.

Hitchcock.esque.

Looks like a painting.
And a place you need a guard dog with you.

That is an amazing photo! So moody. I love it. I imagine it as a huge print, don't you?

I love how the man is sitting there, almost unseen, with his hands on his knees. Those hands are what get me, but I don't know why.

Your ability to capture subtlety is what makes your work so moving. Simply breathtaking.

I'm always so struck by the subtext of your photos -- always so much more than the images themselves. This is another poem of a picture, K. Wow, I love this.

Ken Mac said...

Keith refuses to give us more info. Oh well...

I can't quit this photo. I keep coming back. I can't leave.

Virginia said...

Well I"m back, I didn't realize that I had indeed seen this photo before. It still makes me tear up. He's so alone!

This building looks very much like one I looked at on Figueroa and thought about buying and turning into artists' studios. As it turned out, the driveway to the back parking lot was way too narrow for most cars - even compact ones. Oh well. Bought a hillside house/studio instead.
