Essays taken from a weekly newspaper column published in the Washington County News, Washington, Kansas. Look for my book, "Dispatches From Kansas," available from Amazon.com, or from the author.
All it took was a full week of driving the gravel roads, walking the pastures and prairies and talking to people to see these photos in a wholly different way. I don't know quite how to put it, except to say that if a "country wedding" happens around here, it's generally because that seems a new and hip approach. The fourth and last photos here communicate so clearly the role that the land plays.That last photo - who wouldn't want to start their life together against the backdrop of "that clean curve of hill against sky"?
I thought it was the most perfect setting for a wedding in the known universe. Except for the cold wind (gale), the harsh sunlight, and the cold cold cold gale-force wind.
