Into the nose of the storm

I went inside this place once. A man (whom I now believe was Robert Bruno himself) was sitting in the shade eating a sandwich. He invited us in to look around.

The part of the house on the right of the image hangs above the rim of a small canyon, with a lake below. We were there before glass had been installed, so the room was filled with updrafts off the water below and it felt like we were flying.

It was the first time I understood the place.

And, no, I did not have a conversation with the man. This was a couple of decades ago, before I’d become un-shy. It is a significant missed opportunity.

Marked

A couple of people left their mark here. (Neither of them were me.)

Bruno

From the bottom of the most famous house in Lubbock County. It has an interesting history, which you can read about here.

Quinceañera

Our weather this summer has been uneasy: hot days, or ones that are fall-cool, storms that pop up suddenly, or rains that last all day.

But that makes this happen.

Fingers

Lightning bolts, from the storm that was headed our way.
