STL DPB In Marysville, Kansas

Vacant House

Marysville, Kansas, is a town of about 3,300 people. Not so big, but it has the only WalMart for many miles around. My wife went to high school here. It is about 14 miles / 23 km from the farm where she grew up and 16 miles / 26 km to Hanover, where her mother lives today. Marysville has the closest motels so we always stay here.

I had a bit of free time late yesterday so I went out shooting in the hour before sunset in the town center. These are some examples. There is a growing set of pictures from this trip to Kansas on Flickr here.

I'll admit that I visit the local Dollar General from time to time. Nice shots. Love the top one.

Well, I guess some people are STILL in Kansas after all.
