A seaside holiday


I’ve lived most of my life on the Plains, and feel most comfortable when I can see a long horizon.

That’s probably why I’m drawn to the ocean…

A sort of trinity


I don’t go many days without a cemetery photo, do I?

I like the way the two crucifix-adorned crosses frame up the little statue of a saint.

In case you’re not from an agriculture region, a grain elevator is where grain’s stored – this article explains it better than I can.

I haven’t photographed a lot of grain elevators, although they are lovely in their industrial-architecture way.  This one is especially nice with the vertical lines in the rough concrete and the banks of windows climbing up the side.

Palm Garden


Remember this guy? He was inside the Palm Garden.

And I didn’t plan for both shots of the place to be in color, but apparently the photos were both fairly insistent on the matter.

Two stairways, and a balcony


On a short trip at the end of the summer, we drove through McCook, Nebraska, where I found a very interesting alley (which you’ve already seen here). To be honest, I don’t know what the street side of this place looked like, but it’s hard to imagine that it’s any better than this, with the sign, the stairs, the balcony, the satellite dishes, the house plants, and that extra tire.
