Grass and Plastic


On our way across the country from Santa Fe, NM to California we stopped in Kingman, Arizona. A strange old place on historic Route 66 with more than a few too many boarded up buildings. Along the train tracks that run through town is an area that's gone more or less to wasteland status--lots of orange grid plastic that might have once been used to fence off a construction project and other debris with grasses and weeds poking through.

I found the juxtaposition strangely beautiful, like an abstract painting. I might make an actual painting out of this one but for now you'll have to settle for the original photograph printed on canvas (or as a poster print).
