The last photograph is brilliant! The waves on the truck along with the waves on the building are just too perfect. Great shot!

Reece -- Thanks! I saw this as we turned a corner and had to circle the block to get another look. Something about it worked—the waves, probably—so I snapped it. Personally, my favorite is the bridge pylon, but it took more effort plus a few chigger bites to get.

I like the bridge pylon a lot. A monolithic remnant of a past civilization - an altar, maybe.

Le Grand Lapin -- This was the focus of our trip (other than shopping, of course!), and I made three pilgrimages to it. The first time was at sunset but the light was wrong and the skies clear. The second time was a little after dawn the next day, and the clouds and lighting were great. Then clouds rolled in looking all ominous and otherworldly so I dropped my wife off at a knitting store and made a hasty run back. I bet you could get a thousand photos of that pylon throughout the year and every one would look different. Really cool structure.

I stumbled upon your blog the other day, & I absolutely love all of your pictures, you really have a knack for photography, & I'm also a fellow Kansan, I truly love the picture of the bridge, I gives something old like that a whole new meaning, can't wait for more incredible pictures.
