I love fireworks stands. Especially just after the fireworks season* has ended, when there are amended signs, tattered banners, and other assorted things scattered around.
*In Texas, the season is New Years, Memorial Day, and July 4. Unless there’s a drought – the fire danger outweighs fireworks.
When I was a kid, it seems like this whole part of Texas was cotton farms. Of course, I was a kid a long time ago (never mind just HOW long), so my memory is likely wrong.
But over the past 15 or 20 years, there’s been a huge increase in the numbers of dairy farms, which have caused these little mountains of cow feed to pop up. They’re covered with bright, white plastic and weighed down with tires, and eventually erode away. But new ones are always showing up.

Well, that is we were very happy together. Then I went away to take a photography class and we – the rectangles and I – broke up. Things just weren’t working out between us, and it seemed like the right thing to do. We may get back together, sometime. But for now, we need some time apart.
So, when you come back tomorrow, there’s a chance you may notice a slight variation on the sorts of images you may have come to expect to see here.

Every now and then, I make pictures of stores that aren’t out of business. (I know: that doesn’t sound like me AT ALL. But still…)
