Weekend Photos of note.

Spine and Ribs on a wire.

A spine and a set of ribs found at the entrance to a clearcut out McGowan Creek Road. I thought that this was really creepy when I drove past this, but as I was backing up to photograph it, it occured to me that I might do exactly the same thing if I had found a bunch of cool bones out in the woods. Yet again I might have just left them where they were. Regardless of how they ended up hanging ona wire, I like this image.

The rest of these images are from the sportsman’s show on Saturday. There was very little of note except some taxidermy. The rational for killing and stuffing critters eludes me. Is it so hunter can remember the animal? If I was close enough to that bear to shoot it, you can be sure I would be able to recall it.

Just sayin’………

Good things

January 28, 2008

  • Snow Days
  • Haley Bonar. A folkie with Midwest roots. Quiet, sparse music for life on the great plains.
  • My newish hiking boots. Even filled to the top with water they did not screw up my feet.
  • Burgers with fried eggs on top (as seen at 19th street)
  • Cowboy movies
  • Teaching myself to like whiskey, in particular, being introduced to good scotch.
  • The art of rearranging public signs. I submit this pair as illustration.
