East Side City Lights

east_side_city_lights

This is a very old photo (an early attempt with my first digital camera). It’s a study in mistakes. Technically, it’s just… awful. Still, I kinda like it for some reason. Maybe it’s the somewhat eerie colors illuminating those wisps of smoke… maybe it just reminds me of how excited I was to be taking photos… or maybe I’ve just bounced off my head one too many times. Either way, have a great weekend, everyone!

Red River Ford

Keep on truckin’ everyone.

Do people still use that line? Probably not.

Still… that’s about all that comes to mind right now.

It seems like the truck’s got my tongue. Or… something like that.

Wheat

This is a field next to my parent’s house in rural North Dakota. Do ya’ like how I threw ‘rural’ in there? As if wheat randomly pops up in the sprawling urban center nearest you?

And now, a  conversation between yours truly and a fictional tourist in the sprawling urban center nearest me:

Tourist: “Can you tell me how to get to TGI Friday’s?”

Me: “Let’s see… go 2 blocks north, and take a left at the field.”

Tourist: “The corn field, or the wheat field?”

Me: “Either will get you to that Appletini, chief, but I’d take wheat. Traffic is murder in the corn at this time of day…”
