IN OUR OLD KITCHEN: Photography by Anthony Buccino

 

The In Our Old Kitchen, Photography by Anthony Buccino saga began in August just few weeks after the dust had settled from our bathroom remodel when we ordered new cabinets for our old kitchen renovation. 

By October, it was time to empty the old shelves and cabinets to make way for demolition and the unveiling of old timbers, old wires, clogged plumbing, found covered-up windows, and lots of dirt and dust.

Here in the bowels of our woodwork we discovered the obscure and we found shiny things and sharp things in drawers, cabinets and behind boxes we hadn't seen in thirty years. While our new cabinets are supposed to be larger and roomier, there's no sense in hanging on to these old and forgotten items that have lost their glisten.

The great purge swept away utensils and whatnots we hadn't seen it or used it since God knows when, it was time to donate them to the needy. Well, right after we have a bit of fun with our cameras, drop cloth, and lightbox. We have here one last long look at items that will never be seen again in person. It was a fun little project. Enjoy.

OLD SPICES: Photography by Anthony Buccino

  OLD SPICES

Photography By Anthony Buccino


The secret of each spice is knowing when to use it,
when to shoot it, and when to toss it

Old Spices Photography by Anthony Buccino is dedicated to cooks

Cooks. Short-order cooks, tall order cooks, bakers, sous chefs, gourmet chefs, dessert designers, chocolatiers, cannoli stuffers, bread bakers, broiler masters, pizza makers, oven openers, microwavers, popcorn poppers, and picture lovers.

That includes anyone who ever took up a frying pan, cookie sheet, throwaway foil pan, wok, pressure cooker, spatula, ladle, pot lid and any other implements in preparing a feast, a snack or a cup of coffee.

 Where would our taste buds be without the subtle touch of the perfect pinch of spice in the perfect amount on our favorite food? Here's to everyone whoever added a touch of this, a pinch of that, and a smidgen of this!

 Photos, like spices, can be an acquired taste.

GAS STATIONS: Photography by Anthony Buccino

  You won’t need to take a spaceship to Ashtabula to catch a glimpse of GAS STATIONS: Photography by Anthony Buccino. It's as simple as browsing through this oversize book of gas pumps, service stations, and a few odds and ends.

Why photos of gas stations? We’ll, why not? Until we started curating this collection, we had no idea we already had so many service station pictures from as far back as 1970s and through the past fifteen years.

With a street photographer's eye looking for the unfamiliar in the same old place, we think we've captured a cross section of what you've seen and what you missed in this 150+ photo collection.

So, when you're feeling a tad nostalgic for the good old gas stations and recalling the days when fuel was under four dollars a gallon, you could pull in with an empty tank, say Fill 'er up, and check the oil, GAS STATIONS will fit your mood when you're under the hood.

GAS STATIONS is part of Buccino's 2022 Dozen series, a goal to publish one photo collection each month for a year, this year. Many of New Jersey photographer Anthony Buccino's photos have earned awards in area competitions.

Gas Stations Photography by Anthony Buccino is dedicated to pump jockeys, auto mechanics, tire changers, managers, foremen, test drivers, tool salesmen, tool makers, body shops, car painters, and highway flotsam and jetsam such as nails, screws and other implements of puncture. 

And gas station owners, entrepreneurs, auto parts suppliers, neon sign makers, fuel haulers, tank truck drivers with CDL endorsements, pipeline maintainers, oil drillers, rich oil company CEOs, DMV inspectors, division of weights and measures, EPA, motorcycle cops, speed traps, black/white units, dead dinosaurs, and ancient space aliens. And, as always, to my wife Dawn who always encourages me to have fun with my photography.

Anthony’s World – July 2020


NEW IN PRINT

New Orleans In Plain View by Anthony Buccino
Anthony Buccino has published his fourth photograph collection, NEW ORLEANS IN PLAIN VIEW. The print edition is available on Amazon. We were all set to spend about two weeks in the Big Easy and then everything closed.

This photo book is dedicated to the many wonderful people we have met, beautiful places we have visited and delicious meals we have savored in our very favorite city, New Orleans. From our first visit to NOLA 35 years ago, we found something which meant so much to us, it became the only place we wanted to be other than home… Photos include streetcars, Jackson Square, streetscapes, French Market, local signs, Mississippi River, Mardi Gras World, the National World War 2 Museum, and the New Orleans skyline.

If you’ve been to NOLA and want to see if we caught your favorite place, or if you’ve always wanted to visit, check out this great new book.

Pirates Online

Cherry Blossom Press has removed all but three Anthony Buccino titles from #Amazon’s #Kindle distribution. Several online companies say they offer downloads of our titles. The companies do not have rights to distribute copies in any format. These unauthorized, pirated, copies of ebook titles allegedly available from less than scrupulous distributors may be trolls who use these books as clickbait. While the sites may be legitimate ebook resellers (probably scammers), they are not and were never authorized to resell Cherry Blossom Press titles.

Sixteen Inches on Center, One Morning in Jersey City, and Martha Stewart Doesn’t Live Here Anymore & Other Essays continue to be available on Kindle eBooks. If you already own other titles in your Kindle library, they should not be affected by this distribution change.

Social Media

Anthony Buccino has more than 1,000 photos on his Facebook page. And if that’s not enough for you, pick up Buccino’s photo books:
