Things I have seen

This is a really random post.  I have been piling up photos that were taken from the car or near a location that don’t really fit into the theme of location based posts.  I’ve been staring at them for months now, wondering when i would ever post them.  Well, it seems today is the day.

First, a little house on the saddest street I’ve been on in a long time.

I had to lean over Tabula Rasa to shoot this picture through his side window.  I want to go back in the spring with (hopefully) better light.

 

Next we have The Something.  Not one of us is sure what it is, but it has been there in the middle of this corn field for a long time.  doings its thing.

I saw these near the Nameless Buildings, not sure why I felt compelled to take a picture of them but I did.  I like it.

Then there are the things you see every day, or in our case every photo trip.  We often find ourselves on or below the Skyway and going through the toll booth has become a bit of a marker for us.  This is the gate way to adventure.

Likewise on the way home we often get to see the sun set over Wolf Lake, a view you don’t get unless you are on the expressway.  why we never pulled over and shot photos our the window before I’ll never know, but we did it this day.

    Nice little random collection here. The house is visually my favorite, but “the something” is thought-provoking as well. Reminds me of things I see driving across the desert in California-Nevada where it seems like people just plop buildings in the middle of nowhere apparently for no good reason.

      I can think of a good reason to plop a house down in the middle of nowhere, you ‘re then in the middle of nowhere!
      Thank you, the house is my favorite too, I can’t wait to re-shoot it with better light!

    BioLum said that the Something was another missile silo site. Interesting, but I’m doubtful they would make it that ostentatious.
