At first blush, pickings in downtown Cornerstone, Arkansas look pretty slim. You are looking at it. That’s it. Lock stock and barrel. But as an agricultural community deep in the rich Delta soil, there’s more to Cornerstone than meets the eye, at least on first blush. See two more Cornerstone pictures and learn about what makes it tick on the Photo of the Week. Click here to go there, a very cool thing to do.
In the mid-sixties, when I first darkened the door of the store to satisfy a gnawing hunger, I found the staple RC Cola and Moon Pie, a satisfactory gastronomical adventure by any measure. I eschewed the ubiquitous Vienna sausages, more popularly pronounced, ” … vi-eenurs,” in favor of Cheetos. I never could figure out in which end of Vienna those abominable protein and fat conglomerations originated. And I have a deep-seated appreciation of the legendary Cheetos crunchiness.
On the way to Cornerstone, before the rain, tooling down Rob Roy Road at not much more than a crawl, I noticed a set of stairs to my right. I had driven past the same place no telling how many times and never noticed the steps before. There may be something to say for being less than lead-footed occasionally.
The sun was right, the rain had abated and everything in sight was a glowing green or gold, the ideal conditions to again photograph one of my favorite targets, the water tower at Lake Dick, Arkansas. The last time I shot it, about a year ago, it was surrounded by corn. This year, it is surrounded by rice.
From the tower, expend a foot ounce of energy. Turn your head to the right and you’ll witness a dramatic vista. Layers of green, gold, and blue that will be different in five minutes. Look quick. The admission cost is low. The reward is huge.
