Got an idea for a new photo and decided to do a couple test shots before actually trying the real shot out. And I thought this test pic of a paraffin oil lantern in my apartment turned out good enough to share. Hope you like it.
Have I mentioned I live in farm country? Eau Claire’s at the northern end of the Driftless area, which is mostly small small towns and small (by modern Midwestern standards) farms. And lots of rolling hills. This was taken about 10 miles south of town.

I managed to wander off without my camera this morning, so all a have for you today is a quick cellphone snap of the Eau Claire River. It was an absolutely stunning day today and with temps in the 40’s the bike riding was great. The building in the distance with the smoke stack wasContinue reading “Eau Claire River/ Uniroyal Tire”
