new page: travel writing

Lady Liberty

I started a new page (see sidebar) that I'm calling Travel Writing, consisting of "photo-essays exploring the Texas outback and New Jersey inback." The emphasis is more on visuals but I do write captions. Here's what I have so far:

1. A View from the Picnic Area (2020). A pretty spot outside Glen Rose, Texas, is blemished by the local gentry.

2. Trip to Regency Bridge, June 7, 2020. The last suspension bridge in Texas that you can drive across, built mostly by hand labor in 1939.

3. New Jersey Wasteland Tour (2003). A walk between Grand Avenue and Liberty State Park in Jersey City, an industrial zone gone to seed that would eventually become condos.

An upcoming project will be a comparison of Jersey City in '03 (based on that same group of photos) with "street views" from today. Funky used car lots then, soulless condos now.
