Posted in Action Photos!, Issue Thirty-Seven with tags , , , on September 22, 2012 by mohawko

HEYO. In celebration of Chad Redden’s po3try this week, we have a glorious set of Action Shots, delivered straight into our hot little digital hands from Bulgaria by none other than Operative Delaney Nolan. Let’s go on, continue to rule this:

Yellow. Brick. Sidewalk.

+

Among many.

*

Legos

+

In Delaney’s words:

I wore this patch around Sofia and Plovdiv, Bulgaria, when I was there to read at the Sofia Poetics Festival. I started by wearing it on a free walking tour, and an Austrian, a German, a Bulgarian and a Dutch guy all noticed it and asked to photograph it– they loved the idea, and most everyone in Sofia spoke English, so they could read it.

*

Skittle Skeletons.

+

*

w/ Guns.

+

I wore it at the mineral springs where I saw a gypsy woman washing her hair. I wore it at the baths– that big broke-windowed building in one photo– which used to be a social/gossip center until they had to close it up because it was falling apart.

*

A Riot (of Colors and Flavors)

+

*

MORE

+

I wore it by fruit stands and beautiful graffiti and Cyrillic warnings. I wore it to Plovdiv where we went hiking and found sheep grazing in a field around what looked like an abandoned school. My friend wore it in front of that giant monument to Soviet soldiers, which  is slowly, gradually getting torn down by the Bulgarian government.

*

You Know He Likes It

+

*

Meet Me at the Gates

+

Now it’s made it out to the coast of the blue Black Sea. благодаря, безопасна игла, това е било реално…

*

This Is Not a Photograph

+

Chad’s story saw lots of wide-open spaces. Wide-open spaces are nice-nice.  Infinite and eternal thanks to Delaney Nolan for volunteering and kicking the ball right out of the park. With a club.

*

That’s right. We love our sports metaphors.
