Madill, Oklahoma

If you look at the image long enough you’ll discover what town this corner drug store is located. I’ve been there a dozen or so times passing through but have not stopped long enough to explore.

An advantage of the 2020 pandemic is or was fewer cars on the road because many people were and have been staying home. It was prevalent in the early weeks of the pandemic and one could take a drive during the week day or perhaps a Saturday afternoon and experience very little traffic. That is the case in this image. It was a hot afternoon in this Oklahoma town. Many of the stores and shops in Madill had closed for the day if they had opened at all. This intersection is busy almost always since it is the crossing of 1st and Main downtown. The town square is just a hop and a jump behind this picture taker.

Throughout this blog, and this is an old blog with many images taken from my car, I’ve shot images from the front seat. The pandemic now allows me a bit more freedom to move around and sometimes to quickly get out of the car in the street and shoot a picture with no one in sight.

This black and white image was shot with a 590 nm filter and post processes using PS and channel mixer. I then decided I preferred a more nostalgic look and changed it to monochrome.

Fort Smith, Arkansas

Across the street from the hotel where bridesmaids comb and curl their locks, a bride giggles about the color of butterflies and rose petals, the courthouse absorbs the morning sun rays.  This is not the old historic building.  There was very little time to tour around town but I did take this very first image with the new Nikon D7000 the morning before the wedding.

A Few Miles North Of Town

Words for Wednesday

I shall pass through this life but once. Any good therefore that I can do, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it. For I shall never pass this way again.

Out There

It’s another accident in the making: the photo shot along the road while traveling 60 something, or maybe it I was supposed to be going 55. Speed doesn’t matter except in school zones and how fast I can get paid for work.

Mondays bring us new opportunity. Many people do not like Monday’s. I am not fond of them when faced with difficult situations, but one must not bury their heads in Friday’s sand. Nothing’s permanent. God’s love is and that is all that matters. Meanwhile take a drive. Look outside of your world.
