Back to the scene. Back to the work that I really should be doing… and showing you.
Of course, I’ll return to last weekend’s second lines, but I did some more exploring. I think those pictures are a lot of fun. Especially, since I brought a few friends with me who like seeing and photographing this stuff. They came here from Idaho. They didn’t want to see any of that typical touristy stuff. Oh no. So I took them on “Ray’s Mad Teapot Ride.” They also served as stand-ins for some of the locations that really were screaming out for people. These places really are ghost locations and ruins. But, having a person or two in them makes the pictures feel… well, some other way.
You’ve seen both of these places. Two clubs. Same street. Different eras. The top picture is Sean’s – one time sports bar, one time music club, one time local dive. The bottom picture is a new interior picture of Club Desire. One of the birth places of what eventually became rock and roll after first being the home to some big band music, straight ahead jazz, bebop, jump blues and finally… photo rock n’ roll.
I’ve been photographing these places for a while. If you’ve like to see more pictures please use the search engine on Storyteller and you’ll find plenty of work.
