Make Shift Drive-In

Westerly, RI  2017

Since I first discovered digital photography and began reading and following some of the many photo blogs dedicated to digital photography, I've been following the blog and work of Connecticut photographer Carl Weese.  Carl has spent a number of years traveling throughout the US documenting the remaining drive-in movie theaters and those that have been abandoned.  You can read about the project and view his work here.  I passed this scene recently and immediately thought of Carl's project.   It is obviously a make-shift drive-in theater, probably only open in the summer and  as such didn't make the cut for Carl's work.  The scene was very reminiscent of  a number of Carl's photos, which often featured the large screen as a key feature.  This is my humble attempt to capture some of the essence seen in Carl's work.
