The Time-out Chair

I found this at the back door to the Brewster County Courthouse; I assume it is where the unruly employee(s) have to sit when they get put in time out. It’s in the shade, and the trees are pretty and the air’s fresh, so it’s probably a nice place to sit. Even if you are in trouble.

Stock Tank and the Cathedral Mountains

I’m not tall enough to get the shot I wanted, so I made this one by holding the camera as high above my head as I could reach and shooting it blind.

Just over to my left, a very large steer stood in the shade, watching the procedures. And off in the distance, the Cathedral Mountains.

It’s hard to think of anyplace I rather be than right here.

Target Marathon (a guerrilla art installation)


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.

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.

Ghost Bike


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.
