King of the Road

By gajj
King of the Road:
Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let...fifty cents.
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
Ah, but..two hours of pushin' broom
Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road.

Decaying hotel room still-life in a down & out mining town, Utah as seen through the window on main street, Helper, Utah 2005.

Jill, thanks for the tip - I'll give it a try. But the 350D does shoot in B&W, have you tried it?

Hello Jan.
I see the wireless connection of the laptop in my backgarden is not good working.
Respond to you but it didn't work.
So from upstairs again(for a while)

Love the song AND your nice picture.

The quality of the light here reminds me of the Hopper painting Nighthawks.

Thank you all. Luke, I consider any reference at all to Hooper's works a sublime compliment, thank you.
