holiday madness

it's been a couple of years since i did holiday cards.  i've got a couple of ideas for some (hopefully) fun x-mess cards this year.

if you're interested in being on my card list, drop me your mailing addy.  if you've already let me know you're in for the fun, no need to duplicate.

this is more fun for me if i can get some folks to sign up, so don't hesitate, ok?

taking the long way home

bridge hunting with mom today.  didn't find much in the way of interesting bridges (i'll have to do more research next time), but did see a couple of cool railroad bridges.

railroad bridge in winfield, MO


old monroe, MO

while this isn't quite the bible belt here, i do think of it as the belt loop. 



just outside kingdom city, i spied a blown out old gas station, so took a small detour to shoot it.  while it didn't turn out to be terribly interesting, the motel next door sure was. 



after a less than fabulous lunch at denny's, we headed down to jefferson city.  just outside the city, we got caught up in traffic and this is what had slowed it all down.  not sure what happened, but i'm pretty sure this guy was done in.



a few back roads along the way, we saw a couple other interesting things.  this house is just randomly sitting in a field...


there was a crane unloading and stacking these huge ass pipes out in the middle of freakin' nowhere.  gotta wonder what they're gonna build.




and that was pretty much our day.

the holler days

i've been feeling restless and just kinda funky lately.  must be something in the air, eh?  anyway...i was sitting here about 3 this morning and stepped out onto the front porch for a smoke.  lo and behold, what did i see?  fog.  uh huh, foggishness.  i dearly love the play of light on and through fog.  i decided a little photo adventure was in order...after all, mom was fast asleep and i doubted her level of enthusiasm had i awakened her to ride along.  so, camera and tripod in tow...off i went.

these are the three best shots so far.  all taken in forest park, around 4ish this morning.  gotta love sodium vapor lights.  if i find more shots that i like, i'll toss em up here.  if not...well, it'll be another stretch of silence from me.



                                                                   


                                         


                                         

ok, i can do this meme

ganked from whoknew44 .

1. Stop talking about politics for a moment or two.

2. Post a reasonably-sized picture in your LJ, NOT under a cut tag, of something pleasant, such as an adorable kitten, or a fluffy white cloud, or a bottle of booze. Something that has NOTHING TO DO WITH POLITICS.

3. Include these instructions, and share the love.


                                                                       

                                                                                                                   and

                                                                       
  pleasant enough?
