The Down-By-The-Tracks Daily Cap (52)

Rickety tracks…. A local artist promoting alternative transportation, regardless of whether you have a good head on your shoulders or not… Some means of suggestion is just that and a bit outdated, and others perhaps too exhausting…. And somebody lives (or works) in this box of an abode…. Continue reading The Down-By-The-Tracks Daily Cap (52)

The Chilly Daily Cap(s) (34)

On this 10 degree morning, I managed to find my camera, grab a coat, start the car (but not let it get fully warmed up), assure Dad I had not gone bezerk overnight, leave the house half dressed in nightwear and half in not-so-warm street clothes, scrape the frost from the windows, and drive a couple miles to get to a sunrise vantage point early enough for this…. Ok then…wait a few minutes, move a bit, adjust a camera setting or two, and find a different look for the same sunrise. Ya know, despite bearing the temperature extremes and livelihood … Continue reading The Chilly Daily Cap(s) (34)

The Lincoln Daily Cap(s) (358)

It’s Lincoln…oh yeah, and his Mom and Dad (just kidding M&D – we’re glad to see you too) It’s Lincoln…oh yeah, and his Aunt Tiffany and Uncle Mark (just kidding A&U – we’re glad to see you too) What a clean-cut kid! (doing some naked-time after his bath – “Boy! Get your clothes on!”…”thanks Grandpa will being discreet with the photo. I will really like that when I get older”) We’ll be swinging and giggling the whole while…. Our little child prodigy! OK y’all. Stay with me while I sit my camera down and hug up on this little guy … Continue reading The Lincoln Daily Cap(s) (358)

The Day With Dad Daily Cap(s) (326)

When you combine a level horizon, dusty skies, an oil rig, and nice sunset timing…well, you get this. After watching the sunset from a high ridge line southwest of town, Dad and I find this installation of unknown reason, purpose, and use. Does anybody know what it is that we found? Some may recall the Relay For Life Golf Tournament my family participates in each June in Hays KS (it goes without saying that I have photos of that event…many photos). Dad showed me the latest addition to the golf course – floating fountains! I think all these fountains do … Continue reading The Day With Dad Daily Cap(s) (326)

The On The Farm Daily Cap(s) (325)

The Swallows love the mangled barbed wire in the trailer, except when I get too close… For all things grains, crops, seeds, and harvest, the COOP has been the farmer’s go-to place throughout the Great Plains for decades, as this old truck would surely tell if asked…. With the first frost having already come knocking and winter bears down (despite being 72 degrees today), the remnants of a Kansas sunflower stubbornly continues it survival vigilance against the inevitable… Jerry versus the standing-dead Cottonwood (Jerry won, but not without a fight)…. On the High Plains if a tree wants to grow … Continue reading The On The Farm Daily Cap(s) (325)
