Haunted by Iowa

Two Iowa scenes that have haunted me since I photographed them in 2009. Sometimes I wonder if the structures are still there, but I really don’t want to know. I’m happy to remember them like they were on this February day. Both are © B.J. Smith

Shadow

Am I a mere shadow of my former self…

Shadow of a man, wearing a hat with a brim, looking at his shadow on the dusty ground.

…or is this just what happens when you’re trying to use your cellphone on a sunny day and can’t really see what you’re doing because of the glare?

What did I really want to capture? This…

Woman in the foreground walking her dog. In the background, pine trees and aspens sporting gold/yellow leaves.

Note to self: Remember to take your real camera from now on.

Bald eagle at Golden Ponds

My LP had been telling me for weeks that a bald eagle was hanging out a short walk from home.
Now I’ve seen it with my own eyes. Shot 5/25/2020 with my Nikon Coolpix S6800.
