Film No. 1 - Summer

New film by me. Mostly footage from the Summer - finally put together and edited this week. I'm using a Flip camera and Power Director 8 for editing. I'm planning a series of these movies - vignettes of interest - short scene that are visual and not narrative. Music is from (Free music for films from Moby). You can also see the film on YouTube -

1972 Suburban

1972 Chevrolet Suburban, 67-72 Chevy trucks, GMC Suburban, 72 c20 suburban

Gratuitous shot of the Suburban from our walk on Sunday, starting in Sunnyside (Washington Irving's home) to Lyndhurst Mansion. The last weekend for so many leaves still hanging on. The truck continues to run well - on the to-do list is fix rear oil seal leak at the axle (very soon); tighten up or replace power steering gear; various oil leaks around engine (new gaskets for timing cover and oil pan). It's been a pleasure to drive - and it about as rare as a Ferrari around here - about the same gas milage too? We've seen twice a 1979 Jeep Cherokee around town. It's not like California - but even in CA the older cars are getting rarer - although I just found this blog with some fantastic stuff from Alameda - click here...

Rabbit Painting

rabbit series - smaller paintings by Tim Thayer
Start of a new series of smaller gouache and watercolor works. I'm looking at balance here - and all that might mean within a painting (balance of composition, light/dark, etc.). I find the rabbit to be an odd character/metaphor - it's symbolic sexual meaning combined with cuteness --- but I also find them a little menacing (maybe it all stems from Monty Python and the Holy Grail???). These rabbits are also have a direct connection to the introduction of Henry in Milton 5.0. And a minor connect to the Updike character. This one is available at our Etsy Shop -- 20bucks.

Milton 5.0

Milton 5.0 comic strip by Tim Thayer
Working on getting a batch of Milton 5.0 strips together to submit to the syndicates. I'm coloring a few in - I've colored other Three Feet strips, but I think this is the first Milton. I may work a bit more on the color for Milton himself. Also I've had plans for CPU's little screen to show relevant content to the strip -- got the chance to play with that too here.

1972 chevy blazer truck with snow plow on front
1972 Chevy Blazer - somewhere around Northfield, MA. This one is definitely not running - the inside cab was completely destroyed and it looked like it had been sitting there for awhile. Summer 2010.

Waylon Jennings

Been listening to "Wanted - The Outlaws." This is one of my top ten favorite albums. Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jessi Colter, Tompall Glaser - if you don't know this album go and look for it - if you have this album play it again. I don't really know much of Waylon Jennings' work - but he is so superb on this album I really need to dig deeper. The above photo, while comic, is also a sad comment on his condition at certain times in his life ("...lovable losers, and no account boozers...")
Photo from the Library of Congress - First Lady Rosalynn Carter with Waylon Jennings, smoking a cigarette, and Jesse Colter at a reception preceding a concert to benefit the Carter-Mondale campaign

My Dad

George Thayer

This is a photo my brother sent me of a collection of items from my dad's office. I remember this bear growing up, but never asked him about it. It's just part of so many things I'd like to ask him about now.

1972 Suburban

Tara takes a great picture. I might be a little swayed by the subject matter - but she still takes a nice photo. (photo credit: Tara)

I've been a little obsessed lately - first looking for 1972 Suburbans online in the spring - and now looking for info on wheel sizes, neural safety switches, master cylinders. Maybe I'll be able to get back to work...maybe the fall...

GMC pickup truck in southern Vermont
Not sure if this one is running or not - most of these trucks in this series would appear to be not running. This is southern Vermont outside of an auto repair/auto body place - all the vehicles were lined up along the corn. Been converting these truck photos to black and white - you can see why I left this one in color.

1972 Suburban

1972 Chevrolet Suburban
Well, here she is - our 1972 Chevrolet Suburban. I've owned a lot of cars over the years but this is the first Chevrolet, not to mention Suburban. It's in great shape overall - there are a few updates and additions I'll do but it drives great as is. It's about 17 1/2 feet long, and on the trip down from Keene, NH (we call her Keene Green) we got about 12 MPG - have to do some more testing for local MPGs. I'm hoping we have her for a long time to come - hoping to keep fixing her up so she's better and better. Tara said she felt this was the start of us doing things our own way -- I said "start?" For those that are interested - C20 (3/4 ton), 350 cubic inch V8 with the 350 turbo transmission, original 16.5 inch wheels, three rows of seats, rear A/C (currently not working...but should be back online soon), born in Flint Michigan.

See post below for more info. Pine Island, Florida - Winter 2010.


This is a semi-abandoned truck on Pine Island, Florida. I was in Florida with my brother and step mom. My Dad had passed away a month before. We came down to help out. The trucks don't have anything to do with my dad - it wouldn't have been something that would have particularly interested him (although we shared a love of cars). Winter 2010.

50/50 Horizon Project. Long Beach, New York - early Spring 2010.


50/50 Horizon Project. Milford, Pennsylvania - Summer 2009. Unknown jumper.


50/50 Horizon Project. Lowell, Massachusetts - Fall 2009.


50/50 is a "horizon" line project in which there is a split/top and bottom of the composition. Hudson River, Winter 2010.



To me this looks like a set - not real - maybe it's just that the idea of snow and ice seems so foreign now that it's May - or the lighting. ?



I've had intentions to do a photo project of televisions out of their normal environments - this often means on the street. Originally it was to be a stand alone project - but for now I'll include it on the blog.
