What lies beneath

At some point, someone decided that some rough stucco would be a better exterior for the house than the original narrow wood siding. It’s sort of like a heavy overcoat on top of a fancy dress.

Scratch

 

Rural life on the High Plains is rough. And sometimes scratchy.

(not a) hill

If you can, please forgive my visual pun of lining the Hills’ headstone on the horizon that way. The flat, non-hilly horizon. Sometimes I can’t help myself, although I maybe should try a little harder. I don’t know. I have no perspective in the matter.

the secret is to have a strong foundation

If you ever go on a road trip with me you need to be aware of one important thing: scenes like this will require a stop. Always. Every time.

I don’t know what this is, other than a concrete foundation that’s been inexplicably discarded in a field. The two broken corners tell a story; I just don’t know what the story is. But who cares? I saw it, and I photographed it. And I – along with my reader(s) – can make up our own story. THat’s hard to beat.

On the fly

Cold weather must be on the way: the Canada geese that winter here are arriving.
