Description Art imitates life and sometimes, litter becomes art. While waiting for some shadows to move into position for another, nearby shot, I noticed this plastic bottle sticking out of a space between two sewer access blocks. For some people, when they first see it, the 'source' of the shadow is not evident and I enjoy it when the coin drops and they figuring it out.
Tim Dressler, Takasaki, Japan Member Since August 2012 Artist Statement I was born 5 July 1950 in San Antonio, Texas.
Before coming to Japan in 1990, I was a better than average photographer in Los Angeles; mostly actors' headshots.
Now, I'm a better than average English teacher in Takasaki, Gunma.
As an English teacher/photo-enthusiast, when I'm not correcting my students' syntax, I like to spend hours and hours every week riding my bike through the streets and sleepy neighborhoods of Takasaki looking for art in ordinary places. I hope you'll enjoy what I've found so far.
In addition to the joy I have found through photography here in Japan, I have also found and been married to the most wonderful Japanese woman for twenty-four years; and I look forward to many, many more happy, healthy years together with her in our cozy little apartment in Takasaki.
