- this is the end…
How long will this building remain? How long until it is demolished, without warning?
- The service area
The entrance to the service area. The old key dropoff box is still there.
- The old showroom
The old showroom, with offices above. Both are now empty.
- Sunset #2
Again, another standard sunset shot, this time in town. This was approximately half an hour after the earlier shot, which lent some beautiful golden hues.
- Sunset #1
Here it is—your standard sunset shot. Unfortunately, a power line got in the way. It is almost impossible to get a decent shot like this in the country today without trampling through somebody's field.

Was driving around most of the day with skies like this, but not a drop of rain all day.

When having a crap camera on your phone kind of works for you.
- Cloudy skiess 004
Was going to go trail-walking, but this is the sky and I can't find my umbrella.
(My phone's camera sometimes distorts pictures like this. I don't know why.)

Beautiful scary skies.

- Vanishing Point 1
A panoramic view looking west. I like that this is not a typical vanishing point exercise, but that the wires come in from above left and the tracks from below right, which throws off the balance. The vanishing point itself is a bit too high; perhaps I should have cropped a bit more off the bottom. I touched it up a bit in PhotoShop to add glow and a bit of blurring around the edges.
- off to the side
Everything about this scene suggested neatness: the grass on the bank which had been mowed before the first snow, the neatly disced field, the tidy jumble of farm buildings in the distance. And in the middle of it all, a single can, empty but still wrapped in a paper bag. Also touched up in Photoshop to add the blur.

- Vanishing Point 2
I have always liked railroad tracks—they represented untaken opportunities, I think.
- Vanishing Point 3
A tighter crop of the previous photo, slightly more interesting.
