A Double Hibiscus

Sometimes a flower isn't just a flower. Usually a hibiscus flower has five petals, and this one has double.

The Bus and the The Egg

What stood out was the yellow yolk and the whiteness of the shell both contrasting against the dark cast iron pan. For a moment it reminded me of the colors and the design for the Honolulu Bus. As weird as it may seem hurling an egg into a pan and watching it splat became inspiration for bus photographs!

Phonographs and vinyl revolutionized the film industry lending voices and music to moving pictures. As they became popular, they sold as household appliance and played a part of the American culture that makes up the fabric of this society. Records were heaven sent showcasing musical talents giving opportunity to both musicians and the general public to own their works. 

Then came the digital age, that made these wonderful machines obsolete. I purchased the above phonograph off of Craigslist for $15, repainted it, and it was used as a prop in a photo shoot. In it's retirement, it has lost its voice but not it's mobility. Using a hot glue gun my son and I found small plastic toys to adhere onto vinyl records creating various interchangeable scenes and remaking the use of the analog phonograph. It is art!
