Lost Places?

Staten Island (Oct. 2012)
I have very few photographs of parking lots. The ones I do have are taken from the outside. I try to spend as little time in them as possible.
Near Kelly Square, Worcester, MA (Nov. 2013)
Robert Adams' photographs of parking lots around Denver, CO, between 1979-82, are taken from the inside.
In the catalog to the exhibit, No Small Journeys: Across Shopping Center Parking Lots, Down City Streets, Adams writes, "If we came upon innocence, beauty, caring, joy or courage, even in the lost places, are we not obliged to acknowledge them in defiance of ironists?"

A fine question to close 2013. Or begin 2014. Happy New Year!
