by the same winds that blew

Curves going one way, and the wind the other, creating a dangerous situation for drivers. (So, naturally, it seemed like a really great place to pull of the road to get a photograph.)

Spring Break

You just know that was a squeaky mattress…

Holes in the argument

That sign does seem to imply – or even promise! – that there’s water nearby. Evidence suggests otherwise, though…

Stepstool

The windows were boarded up, almost all the way to the roof. There was a gap, though, which led me to use one of my favorite photographic techniques: propping the camera on any available level surface and shooting without actually knowing what I was going to get. In this case, as you can see, I got some shelves that are leaning all kinds of ways, one dangling light bulb, and piles of pigeon (or rodent) crap.

And a stepstool that reminded me of one we had when I was a kid.

It was curtains for this place

It was apparent that this place was no longer in use, which made those curtains that much sadder, somehow.

And look! Even more yucca.
