Got a new camera!
Saw the first copy of Real Photos from the Streets of Dayton, Ohio, the book, last night.
It is magnificent. Well worth the $29.95 for your favorite person this Christmas or post-holiday season.
In the meantime, here's some photos from around Dayton recently. We concentrate on grand architectural stylings, or attempts at them.
The Masonic temple houses concerts,
and a secret society of mankind that works to
keep the devil alive on planet Earth, at least
that's what some nut told me one day in
line at the Wayne Avenue Krogers.
The Reynolds and Reynolds Building
just off of Interstate 75 is now clockless. ;-(
There's only about 10 houses like this left in the
Wright-Dunbar area. If you've got elbow grease,
this just might be the buy for you. The roof is still in good
Mary Queen of Peace School, on Gramont Ave, just a
couple of blocks off of West Third Street near Abby.
The view at West Third and Williams. If you know the
area and its history, it's obvious that some
good things are happening in this area of town.
There's still lots of room for improvement though.
In Harrison Township at North Main and
Nottingham, the Ohio State Buckeyes
reign supreme as Gods at the Northtown
Sports Bar and Grill. Good food and drinkin.
The old Roosevelt High School stands as an
architechtural metaphor to our new
suburban-corporate economy and social
structure's abject failure to preserve
anything of lasting value through our
transition into a plastic economy.
While just outside the Roosevelt grounds, Images
by Prince neighborhood Barbershop chugs along.
Row of public housing units at Desoto Bass
Dayton Metropolitan Housing Authority Complex
at the corner of Stewart and Danner Streets.
The view driving down Troy Street in old North Dayton.
David's Uniforms, a very interesting and cool store, is
just up ahead.
Woman walking across the street in front of
the soon-t0-be uninhabited Dayton Daily News
building at Fourth and Ludlow.
Daytonians love their Pepsi. The ramp onto Route 4
near the Keowee Street exit.
lastly, some photos from drexel's recent concert at Canal Street Tavern, and some other various pics and stuff from my life.
Brother Justice takes up the collection during
the evening offering. Let's put that green
where it can be seen!
Heavenly father, we pray that you bless this
show with good piana' playin', and honest,
Part of the drexel family came over to celebrate
Gail's big 40th birthday.
The Revererend Drexel Dave
preaches the word.
Jimmy D. Rogers is definately one of the
best piano players in all of America. He can
really tickle, or alternately, pound the ivories.
We we extra blessed to have him play them
old Ivories this evening.
