The Trailer Park Across The Street

The morning when I made this photograph was foggy and rainy. I wasn't feeling well that day, and intended to go back to bed after taking my son to school.

I loved the light that I saw when I got home, so before I went back to bed, I walked across the street from my house and photographed this broken tree in the old trailer park on Sandpoint Road, just west of the railroad tracks.

The man who owned the trailer in the background told me that the trailer park's owner offered to give it to him if he would fix it up and pay rent for the lot. The trailer had sat empty for years and the floors had been badly damaged by water from a leaky roof. He had just divorced and his wife got his house and the house she owned before they married!

When I was a kid, this trailer park had signs saying that it was called Cozy Acres.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
