I wish I could claim this one but Lula took it, a Polaroid 420 panorama down in the south of Jackson.
True or False: In taking photos of this open field, were we approached by a representative of Homeland Security? Why, yes, we were. To his credit, he was both kind and knowledgeable about Jackson Civil War history, something I’m more than a little interested in. And the old Mississippi Power & Light substation could be considered a “mark” by Al Qaeda, if they had any particular interest in really mucking up Jackson for a few hours.
Got some great Polaroids from Spanish Town that I can’t wait to post tomorrow. Finally getting a bit of the hang of this camera, although it’s certainly not an exact science. So Happy Super Fat Tuesday! And hat tip to Cud’n Isbell for the title.
OH, and if you’re a fan of punk rock, flier art, the D.C. scene, Minor Threat, or just cool things in general, you must check out Jeff Nelson’s ongoing eBay auctions. There is some amazing work in there, including lettering by Chris Bald and legendary art from Raymond Pettibon.
I admit to snagging a couple of them for an upcoming project that I’m really excited about. Long story short, it involves a few dozen fliers, six or seven artists, Starkville punk rock, and an extremely kind gallery owner. More on this as it develops.
