America's Breadbasket


Part of he Farmers Co-op grain elevator in Hanover, Kansas. It looks both sculptural and industrial. One of the nice things about driving around Hanover taking pictures is that whenever a car or pickup goes by in the other direction the drivers always wave hi, despite the fact that they have no idea who I am.

WHAT I DID LAST NIGHT: Stopped in Kansas City for the night on my way back to St. Louis and went to dinner in the new Power and Light District. Wasn't that impressed. A little two corporate, a little too plastic and they won't allow big cameras in the central enclosed plaza. They're no fun.
TOMORROW: Probably a little more prairie grass.

I like your photograph of the elevator. We have one that is similar here where I live.

I also liked the family photos in your post yesterday.

Wow, you've actually made it look beautiful and artistic. Love your shot.

Great shot today. How nice of them to keep those tall ones so very clean and white so they really pop for your BW picture. And I am getting a little tired of all these ticky little rules regarding cameras and tripods. Most of the time I can't figure out what they are so worried about. I guess the idea of "free" publicity is foreign to them.

The collection of white and silver cylinders, stairstepped to the sky, is so attractive in this photo.
Corporate weiners are no fun. Did you need a Q clearance to enter the plaza or something?

Oh dear I've missed so much while I was away on vacation. Yesterday's family pictures are a trip back in time, absolutely amazing!
Your series of artist portraits are gorgeous too.

That's a really striking image - very impressive!

I love this. Just love it. It seems that with a little imagination they could be any number of things besides farm buildings.
