The Sky Takes a Lead Role

Some scrappy brush that hasn’t yet leafed out for the summer, dwarfed by the giant sky.

A close up of the x-ray machine from yesterday’s post.

For those of you who were wondering, I did some research on Thermax, and it currently has a lot of references that deal with “Pune-based industrial energy solutions provider Thermax.” (I first read that as “prune-based industrial energy solutions, which made for a fanciful few seconds. Welcome to my mind.) Anyway, the only thing close that I found was a reference to a 1974 x-ray machine in a British medical journal.

So there you are.

X-ray vision

I first photographed this building back in 2013, and I posted shots of a very messy room and of an abandoned refrigerator. But I didn’t go inside.

Now, though, I’m bolder than I was five years ago, and on a return visit to Colorado City I just walked right on in. And found this treasure in a back room.

They are indeed

I took advantage of a weekend trip to a place with dark-ish skies to work on getting some photos of the night skies.

An out-of-business bait stand just outside the entrance to the state park where we stayed:

The view back toward the town of Colorado City:

Our cabin:

My son, who delights in goofiness, photobombed this shot by hopping around with a flashlight. And then he tripped over the firepit and fell down. The fun with us just never, ever stops.

A mural, a photograph, a pendant light, and a conduit. None of these things have anything in particular to do with each other, but together they make a relatively pleasant little scene.
