On my recent trip to the Felsenthal Breamfest, I made some mental notes (some detractors may challenge that ability), about what to shoot on the way back. I call these “drive-by shots,” since I do not have to leave the beaten path to capture the image. The first of these was a functioning red barn with a little age, but much. The best evidence of a barn in use is meadow muffin presence — and this barn yard was well equipped.
The second target was a field of round hay bales. Several years ago, shooting fields of round hay bales was all the rage, then for reasons unbeknown to me they fell from favor. I am making a meager attempt to rejuvenate the trend.
Before we go much further, last weekend, I photographed a Memorial Day program. I went to shoot a flyover by the Black Pilots Association of America. I had intended to shoot the flyover and make tracks, but did a preference reset and stayed longer. To find out why, read my observations from the event and see a bunch of event pictures including the fire-belching cannon on the Photo of the Week page at Corndancer dot-com. We’ll wait here until you leave.
Needing a few more images to round out a story, I sallied forth for more drive-by shots on my own turf, nearby LA (lower Arkansas). I was not dissapointed. Despite many trips, there is always something new or different.
S.E. Tucker Store still stands, but just barely
The next three pictures won’t mean much to non-LA readers other than visual interest. What’s left of the old store at Tucker, Arkansas still stands. All the debris has been cleaned up. A person or persons unknown to me have done some professional work to stabilize the structure, so what’s left may be with us for a while. Take a gander.
Well folks, some of these epistles have a deeper meaning. This is not one of those. I hope you enjoyed the pictures and minimal verbiage.
