Target Marathon (a guerrilla art installation)

073116

So remember the other day when I posted a non-traditional view of the well-know Prada Marfa art installation?

This piece, known as Target Marathon, showed up one day this past January, and so far no one has claimed responsibility for it. I believe it is sort of an artistic middle finger thrown in the direction of Prada Marfa, which is about 80 miles away.

Pool

This swimming pool is in the same county park as yesterday’s picnic shelter, although depending on your definition of “swimming pool,” it might be more of a concrete pit with water in it.

The Critical Element

This county park south of Marathon is an oasis – there’s a small dam across a stream, which makes for a nice wetlands habitat. There are big elm trees, too, so even in the heat of summer it’s a nice place to visit.

But if you’re planning a picnic, this particular picnic shelter is probably not your best option.

Ghost Bike

020113

This ghost bike along US 90 commemorates where a cyclist was killed. Using painted bicycles as a way to memorialize a death began in Missouri in 2003. This fatality was, judging by the sign on the bike, the result of a DUI.

The lens flares seem to be pulling the bicyclist skyward.
