Coming home from Iowa recently, I passed a whole string of old, abandoned farm implements and buildings. Here are just a few.

Living out in the boonies like I do, there’s never a shortage of abandoned stuff lying around. Here is just a small sample.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition (Crossed Wires)   69 comments


A juxtaposition is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast.”

I was on my way to Iowa while the sun was setting and I passed by this power plant and saw a potential there for a photograph. So I carefully backed up and pulled to a stop on the side of the highway, grabbed my camera and hustled to where I could get the shot I wanted.

There was a man standing in the approximate neighborhood but he didn’t seem to be bothered by my presence.

As the sun was disappearing rather fast, as sunsets do, I didn’t have time to grab a tripod. Whatever I came up with was going to have to be the result of a low-light hand-held camera.

I got off several shots but this is the only one that came out even close to what I was trying to achieve. A tripod would have made it a better shot, I think, but sometimes you just have to seize the moment. I hope you enjoy it.

Comments are welcome.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Family (Modern Family)   46 comments


The modern family is many things. Herein is love, relaxation, being comfortable in each other’s presence. Yet, here is wandering off in different directions, yet still maintaining a closeness bound by something greater than what technology can provide.

Later on we all went downstairs and watched Johnny Depp’s Lone Ranger, a very unusual look at my childhood hero. Still, it was very entertaining and there were some exciting CGI chase scenes. Here is family.

Spring never comes quickly enough for me. Spring represents many things for me, including baseball, as I am an avid Kansas City Royals fan. Of course, flowers represent for me a new beginning, as do new life of all kinds. Most importantly, it represents the end of a very, very cold winter.
