Everything else

Here's the rest of the photos from the fun photo excursion me & Lanette took. Click any of them to enlarge them in a new window.

Below are shots of a church on top of a hill somewhere east of Lincoln and west of Omaha. Some fairly determined Catholic fellows put this one together -- the first one was blown down in a giant windstorm just after it was finished (I kid you not -- some would take that as a message, eh?), was ground up and buried, and then another one (this time built with load-bearing steel instead of just wood) erected on the old church's grave. Not by the hair of their chinny-chin-chin will this one blow down.

Lanette definately got into the act -- there's nothing too big or small for her to photograph.

Seriously, she thinks of the weirdest shots. Here she is getting a shot of the ceiling girders. A moment before this shot, she was trying to get a shot of me getting a shot of her by focusing on the reflection in the steel bowl at frame right.

And here I am pseudo-secretly taking a photo of her showing me one of her photos. Ha ha! The cable-release ninja strikes again!

Havin' some fun with the door and the entryway. Man, I dig this wideangle lens.

Lanette kickin' it by the Virgin Mary. I hear this is a local hangout for hooligans.

There was a striking radio tower just to the east of the church.

Through the tallgrass. Slapped my 50mm on for this one.

A shot of some hay bales we came across. I cloned a small number of pixels (probably like a dozen) out at left, as there was a pivot waaaaaaaay in the distance. Sinces it's art, I'm not too worried about it.

Look who's being tracked by aerial/satellite? Hi there, truck carrying something Important!

It's the attack of the fifty foot Lanette! ;)

All in all, a very fun trip, especially considering I did it all in the morning before I jotted to work. I can't wait to see what Lanette came up with -- I'll post some of it here when I get it.

This was a fun post to look at. My favorites are the ones with the tall grass and the hay bales. Thought you might like to know that this is the only personal blog I read regularly. Keep up the cool shots.

Do you have an online gallery, like on flickr or deviantART or something?
