These images are based on photographs of Ontario rural locations, some abandoned but some just old and interesting. Mixed media photography. I like the images with the postal marks on them. A personal thing from all the years I wrote penpal letters and still really like vintage postcards. But, my favourite of all of these is the one with the plain wooden house and all the greenery in the foreground. I like the look of it, much less spooky than the other images. I think it has a touch of fantasy and is more interesting because it's less forbidding and doom and gloom.

Paul Angel, in the UK, has made a project of photographing hearts carved or drawn in public places. A nice project for an urban explorer. Where could you find the oldest graffiti hearts in your local area? Have you ever created one yourself and if so, how did you make it and what did you make it on?
A series Paul Angel, UK, has been working on since 2004, photographing graffiti love hearts and pairing them with the spaces in which they are found.

At some point this contained over 200 birds. But it’s closed (2012) and left to fall apart now. You can see what it was using the Internet Wayback Machine link.
The owner of the property has his own story at The House of Emonts.

I haven’t seen the place. It certainly has an interesting back story. How did growing pot (which is being made legal according to Justin Trudeau) bring about so much chaos and loss? It must be quite an interesting place to see. But, I don’t know about accessing the location. Probably smart to ask first.
