Added a new image to the “Open” series.  This is not in Syria or Afghanistan but Hays, Kansas.  Not sure if it was hit by a tornado or a wrecking ball.  Maybe both…  See the rest of the series HERE.

Mini Wheel

This monstrous contraption has terrorized children for decades – no doubt including my brothers and myself, when we were small and defenseless enough to be shoved, screaming, into its tiny steel gates.  It appears to be retired now – I found it parked in North Lawrence, KS.

My “wretched” series of photos is growing at a glacial pace; my apologies for keeping you in the blog-o-spere on the edge of your collective seats for so many months! Hope you agree the wait was worthwhile:

Bowersock Power Station

When I was a kid I spent probably 90% of my time in the ditch next door to our house building dams out of mud and bricks.  It’s what I’d be doing right now if the city hadn’t buried a pipe in place of our creek.  So when I got a call this summer about taking photos of the new hydro-electric power plant in Lawrence, I said “Yeah, I’d love to”.  Just like that.  Very restrained and adult like.  Built by Kissick, architecture by Sabatini.

Manhattan High School

These are of the recent addition to Manhattan High School in Manhattan, KS by Gould Evans.  It was difficult to edit these down to only a few images, so I gave up trying…
