More Justin James Reed
If you want to be popular (and I do), you need to give the people what they want, right? Well, the people have spoken (according to Blogger Stats, where I crunch my Small Data) and they are clamoring for me to post more photos from Justin James Reed -- rather like how in a different sphere of existence people clamor for more Taylor Swift. In many of Reed's photos some offense has taken place. The broken plastic above is a bit disturbing, but then again, the idea of plastic over cinder block isn't so appetizing to begin with. In the photo at the bottom the perfect symmetry of the building becomes a bit sinister when you consider that no human has ever set foot on that lawn since it was sodded, with the closest human contact coming from the guy that goes by on a riding lawn mower. Reed's work is pretty diverse, but still coherent.
