a Photographic Journey by Meryl

Powerless

lost my head
where’d it go
disconnected
who do I know

lost my head
boots keep walking
Yay a landline
am I talking
The  recent loss of power by so many of us
in the Northeast has fed right into my persistent belief
–and the premise of my Phantoms series—that we are perilously too
reliant on technology in order to communicate on the most basic level.
Now when I view the most recent Phantom taken in New York about
a week before the hurricane, I’m quite spooked by
the premonition it seemed to convey…

  2. That’s good news Meryl, I’ve seen some pictures from over your way that look VERY COLD!!!!

    I thnk we are going to be having a bit of that here soon…brrrr… that means the whole country will come to a complete stop as we have about 2 inches of snow…
    We would be in a pile of trouble if it ever REALLY snows 🙂
