“Welcome…$10.99…”


We are settled in and I am connected to the internet again. I find it hard to believe how complicated that process still is. We had the old modem which we used with this phone company and it worked fine, but we also needed a Wi-Fi router for our complete set-up to work. Getting that hooked up and working took hours and phone calls to snooty telephone company techs.
This photo is of the checkout counter of our Market in Cedar Key. The outside of the building is in the post below. The issue of photographing a place inside-out [literally and figuratively]  is an interesting one. Brooks Jensen addresses this dilemma in his  The Tendency to Catalog pod-cast. The issue certainly comes up in my work, especially in the photos I have made over the last few months photographing along highway 19/98. I do take issue with Brooks that this is a bad thing. At the same time I too have issues with typology photographs. You might want to listen to Brooks’ s pod-cast and come to your own conclusion. In the pod-cast he refers to the book Art & Fear by Ted Orland. If you have not read it, you might find it interesting.
