This shed — of potentially two? — has been reserved for posts that were insufficiently inflected or poetic, or were too odd, or dry or, in some instances, too close or difficult. What was and wasn’t too this or that was inconstant, or evolved. With the exception of some of the medical portraits (about which I remain conflicted), any one of these might have (or might now) fit in asfaltics.

Shed one started on 10 March 2013; it has gotten inactive of late.

as for the name
There were two sheds, behind Miner’s Hardware in Culver City. They were used for storage, boxes, rental paint sprayers... for warehousing extra stock perhaps... I was a kid then, remember them as lumber rooms, and where boxes were accumulated for eventual move of the business.
