R.I.P. Old White Garage…

Oh!  Old white garage

with peeling paint

You were only mine

for a small time

(but technically, not really)


Now you are gone…

Disappeared with no warning

Razed down by bulldozers,

tractors, and who knows what else…


When I drove by all I could see

Is a blank spot,

squared off area gravel in your place

They took away all the garbage

surrounding your crumbling, peeling

(yet photogenic) facade

And they took you away with the trash


Oh white garage!  You were not trash

You were beautiful in your own way

Go now, run, be free and play with your old garage friends

way up high….in heaven where you must exist now having served

this photographer oh so well…


Oh lovely old white garage,

a face only a photographer would love

I’ll miss you.



LOL. Seriously tho, another location bit the dust last week. Too sad. Urban sessions will go on! 🙂



Old Garage I

Old Garage II

Old Garage III

Old Garage IV

Old Garage V

Old Garage VI


Knowing that life is about change, I accept that it is gone and it has served me & the families who I have photographed there well. Gotta have a sense of humor bout these things.


xoxo, Mare
