The Rhythm of the Space


Remember this old place from three years ago?

This is what the outside looks like now – it’s (finally!) under renovation and all the “decorative” metal siding’s been stripped off, and you can see that it used to be white, and turquoise. Well, YOU can’t see that, since this is a black and white image, but I saw it.

That’s neither here nor there. What I really like about this is the way the entire frame devolves into about a million rectangles.

School Pom


Wow! This shop owner really shows some school spirit! I mean, here we are at the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year, and s/he’s got that vintage poster from six years ago still occupying an important spot in the window.

Held at bay


The people around here are pretty lucky, that’s for sure. If not for the fence and that old tire, there’s no telling what those two runaway shopping carts might have gotten away with!

Importance of local commerce


This business is, I am sure, critical to the local economy. It’s part of the vast agribusiness infrastructure of the South Plains. I think it is, anyway. There’s not a sign or anything like that to tell me.

I guess they’re operating on the principle that if you need to know what the name of the place is, and what it does, you’ll somehow just know.

Newest thing in town


I am not actually certain that this playground equipment was the newest thing in town, but my quick visual inspection indicated that it might be.

Also – in case you’re planning a visit and want to fit in – the town’s pronounced “Medda.” Really. I’m not setting you up for ridicule or anything. That’s how we talk out here.
