I could tell you that this was planned in advance as part of a Big Important Concept Photo that I wanted to make.
But that would be a lie, and you’d notice it right away because by now I am sure you know that Big Important Concept Photos are not even I thing that I do.
So here’s the actual truth about what happened: my camera settings were wrong (100% user error) for the situation, so the resulting photo was…awful. Except that in an odd way, it wasn’t awful. At least to me.
This trip was not intended to be a road trip, but that’s how it turned out. And then that’s how we happened to be in Hugo, which as it turns out is the home to only surviving brick roundhouse in all of Colorado. The roundhouse is so important that it has its own website.
