Phase 1: Day 9 – Out and About

Out and About: Discarded Insecurity Cameras

Kathy & I got out early for our walk this morning in order to beat the “heat.”  I say “heat” in quotations because we are actually – finally – seeing seasonal temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.  Our thermometer actually hit a high of 91 yesterday.  Pretty toasty.

When we get out early we can walk around the parking lot of the Walmart that is outside our neighborhood and stay in the shade most of the way.  The back of the store is often a target-rich photographic environment, which has provided me with content for the next few days.  I’ve never actually been inside the store, but have walked miles around the perimeter of the parking lot.  And taken pictures of their detritus.

These cameras have evidently reached the end of their useful lives, and were piled in an old shopping cart behind the store.  Probably waiting for someone to come and haul them away along with the old shopping carts.

  1. Interesting lines for your black & White photo shoot!
    Always wondered what one might find in the back of big box stores away from the consumers eye! Thanks for the insight!!

    1. Hi Karen! Yes, there are often some pretty interesting things back there and I have been photographing some of them lately. More to come in the next few days! 😉

      We’ve been keeping up with the happenings in Belhaven and will be in touch once it seems like things are starting to open up again. It might be June or even July but know that you are in our travel plans!
