Thomas Hill Standpipe


Thursday Challenge: Container

The Thomas Hill Standpipe is the holding tank for water on the west side of the city. Local historian, photographer, promoter and Internet wonk Ryan Robbins gives it a better write up than I ever could for anyone interested.

I'll just call it one tall drink of water.

Lensday: Independence


Civil War Monument, Lagrange, Maine.

Ok, So it's a Civil War Monument. But he stands alone, like the CHEESE! But the REAL story of Independence can be found in these following photos. This is what he looks at every day. These stores are side by side in a town of about 500 people. I tried to get them in the same frame, but they are far enough away, Gentle Viewer, that you miss out on the full effect.

Go, Speed Racer! Go!


Don doesn't know it yet, but he wants to be a race car driver when he retires. He wants to strap on his helmet and race his car with his pet monkey by his side and have adventures. It's not a life for everyone but he'll make it his own. The smell of gas, the sound of rubber squealing on the track, the smell of of doughboys at the concession stands, all of this makes Don howl at the moon.

Gotcha!


A mosquito was, in fact, harmed in the making of this photograph.

A McRose among McThorns.


I know..it's wrong. It's another flower. It's centered. It's blah blah blah. But I posted it because I took it from my car between the first and second drive-thru windows at my local McDonald's.

And THAT, Gentle Viewers, makes it KICK ASS! Posted by Hello

Thursday Challenge: Fragile


I found this inside a tool room of an abandoned railroad deisel shop. Nuts and bolts were stored in jars and screwed up into the lids which were nailed to the shelves. Didn't your Dads do this? Posted by Hello

A Ladybug in its Natural Environment


That is if its natural environment is plucked from a window and made to walk on a Wenger® Swiss Army Knife so that no matter where it goes it is always on top. Posted by Hello
