An Unexpected Adventure
February 9, 2020
In 2006, years before my friend Britt forsook Oberlin for Santa Barbara (and before I started this blog), she and I drove to nearby Elyria, Ohio, to see what we could see. Starting with a promising alley, we had not been there long when a man approached and invited us into the building we had been photographing. He was renovating it and thought we might find interesting things to photograph inside. Did we ever. Were I to do these photos over, I would take many of them differently, most often by pulling back a bit to include more in the frame. But I had so much fun taking another look at these even as they are that I decided to share them here.
