Pyote Air Force Base, a set by Noel Kerns on Flickr.

Perhaps the best photographer I've come across... I continue to be mesmerized by his work.

Via Flickr:
Built in 1942 to serve as a bomber training base; after the war it was used to melt aircraft down for scrap metal. Both the Enola Gay (first atomic bomb) & Bataan (Douglas MacArthur's plane) were sent here for destruction, but were rescued & preserved by the Smithsonian Institute.

The station was commonly referred to as the "Rattlesnake Bomber Base", because of the concentration of rattlers in this remote, west Texas location...not a fun hike to get to and from this spot at night!

For more information, including vintage pictures of this interesting old airfield, visit the Abandoned Airfields Site.

In 1985, the remains of the airfield, and this hangar specifically, were used as a set in the Kevin Costner movie 'Fandango'. For more information about this movie and the west Texas locations used in it's filming, visit this Fandango Fan Page. I actually wound up shooting three of the locations used for the movie during this road trip.

Weeping for keeps

Weeping for keeps, originally uploaded by gogoloopie.

Even the words that are laid to rest-

they no longer weep for me.

They vanish without purpose.

A meaningless death.

A lot of editing via my iPhone/iPad... It almost seems odd to me, but I know absolutely nothing about photoshop or photo manipulation outside of these nifty 1-3 dollar apps available for editing on my iPhone... :)

Everything will fall silent - even eternal rest.

And things no longer weep for us.

Stop Me . . . !

Stop me before it's too late
Though we may be out of time, darling,
and the end approaches.

I thought I was dreaming,
And I would never hit the ground;
a moment before the world goes dark,
another dawn arrives and you awake.
But always the dawn will save you.
But it turns out, I am wide eyed and alive,
and staring in the mirror, craving release,
This is me, and I am tearing apart,
falling to my doom, with this broken heart.
The ground closes in, my blood runs cold,
my heart burns with the fire of regret of wasted years.

Stop me, before it’s too late.
I think I see the darkness approach, darling.
Or is that you?
Was it always you?

This is a shot I snapped at the FWPW5 (Instagram Meet-up), last month as I ran to my car to find my wallet and pay for my dinner..)! I added some tilt-shift via the IG app.

"A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years, but a photograph always remains the same. How nice to look at a photograph of mother or father taken many years ago. You see them as you remember them. But as people live on, they change completely. That is why I think a photograph can be kind"
