I loved taking pictures when I was a teenager in the ’80s. I mostly skulked around my Long Island town and gravitated toward minimally populated places, making a conscious effort to avoid human contact and questions ( namely the infamous “why are you taking a picture of that ?”). And so I have a lot of photos taken from behind storefronts and in deserted parks. Parking meters, fences, construction equipment, if it was inanimate and couldn’t talk back, I was all over it. The picture above was taken behind the local 5 & 10 ( 20th century equivalent of the dollar store) up the street from my house. I don’t know how many clearly, nearly empty spray paint cans it took to capture Beelzebub enjoying his doobie but the effort was absolutely worth it. That fiery butt-end is a treasure.
Speaking of fiery treasures, it’s time for the latest WEEKLY NEW WONDERS PLAYLIST featuring the finest and most fabulous songs we’ve heard over recent days ! Check ’em all out below….
