Fall Tree 2017

Fall Tree 2017
This tree is at the edge of my little town and I've been coming here for 38 years and photographing each Autumn when the leaves turn. It's almost a religious experience for me - it's a very beautiful tree.

Cement Work

Cement Work
I've been pouring some new and improved back steps, one at a time. You can see I'm ready to do the next level. You can see how crooked the old steps were and the fact that the top step was over 12 inches high. Plus, some of the plaster has cracked off…

This is the old city building, where the mayor and council used to meet. They had another building they used after this and now a current they use, which was an old converted funeral parlor, so this one hasn't been used by the city for some time. Now, i…
