There was a time I revered Bob Villa. Some forty-odd years ago I was in the process of “fixing up” an old house in midtown Atlanta, and I watched “This Old House” with something like religious zeal. As a novice, I paid close attention to his solutions to problems that were often similar to mine. But over time I watched as Bob and his crew got farther and farther away from the kind of projects a homeowner might tackle. “It’s all shot, Bob. It’s all got to go”, was one of our oft-quoted lines from the show toward the end. We longed for the days when Bob, or one of his men would show how to replace the wax ring under a toilet. I wasn’t interested how to jack up the whole house and move it to another lot. Bob just got carried away and I stopped watching.
All that was going through my mind as I walked around “this old house” on a hot summer’s day. Now I live in an RV, and my carpentry tools have all been given away. Things change.

My goal, after all was to produce an image that looked like an old lith print, and telephone wires just didn’t fit in.
