The Sacred and the Profane

Good morning,  I’ve reached back in the archives for a couple of analog photos that I took during my Navy Years (1968). During Vietnam I was deployed on a carrier that  traveled to Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore. In one of those places I encountered this Buddha Sculpture in a park. It is rendered in Sepia tones because the dyes in the transparency had faded away over the years.

Before I was deployed on the ship, I was stationed at Imperial Beach NAS in California. On weekends I would catch a bus and head to San Diego or the beaches up the coast. One one urban exploration I took the photo of the street sign. of the Strip Club, however I cannot verify the veracity of the advertising.

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. I was visiting my daughter and she took me to the Paramount Restaurant in South Boston. The food was great, a grilled chorizo Omelette.

I got a chuckle out of their seating policy too.

I often take photos of food and realized that if I could sell at least one, it might set me up for a life of leisure.

Halibut Point Restaurant
We took a road trip to Cape Ann to have lunch at the Halibut Point Restaurant in Gloucester, MA. We had oysters and chowder keeping with the atmosphere of this place.

I make it a habit to carry a camera with me for photo opportunities and I wasn’t disappointed. Knowing that one of my favorite photos themes is #ToiletTuesday, I snapped these two shots. Tasteless or quaint, you decide.
