A bigger picture

Because we here at One Day | One Image try to provide as much information as possible (and some of it may, from time to time, be factual!), and because we were sure you’d want to know what the entire front of the building looked like, here is the whole thing.

And below, a detail from the window on the far right, which observant reader(s) will recognize from a previous installment here on the blog.

The Footprints sign left behind its own set of footprints, didn’t it?

One January day, a friend and I were exploring the old cemetery in Tuscarora, Nevada, when my foot broke through the hard, dry snow and I fell, ending up flat on my back. In a cemetery. It was the tiniest bit disconcerting.

In this cemetery, I was flat on the ground again, but this time on purpose and on my stomach, to get the shot of sunlight on the iris leaves. (And for those of you keeping score, I did get one fire-ant bite.) (I would also like to point out that fire ants are appropriately named.)

I am drawn to compositions like this one, with a roof slicing through the rectangle of sky. Sometimes less really is more, I suppose.

Three flavors

Beats me. Maybe in the summer this car serves as an ice cream stand?

When I go someplace like Dime Box, where I’ve never been before, I have the feeling that everything has looked just the way I saw it approximately forever. (I know things have changed, of course, or all these old buildings that I find would still be pristine.) So, that car, with its numbered windshield, and the mysterious ice cream signage? Been that way for years. Right? So it was a tiny bit of a surprise to look at the same scene on Google Maps and notice that my perceptions are wrong.
