Checkin' In



Well, it's been awhile. I felt like getting some new shots up, so here ya go. I'm now in Knoxville and things are pretty insane. So far, I've scaled tall bluffs, explored an old coal mine, been shot at (I think it was meant as "fun"; some fun!), and nearly put my hand on a copperhead. I've got photos of most of these adventures (Yes, I actually thought about taking my camera out to photograph the people shooting at me, but decided to just get moving. I DID take a photo of the copperhead.) and I'll try to get them up soon. In the meantime, here's my life from March to April: A dead dashboard at the auto salvage in Savage, MN; a winter reprise at Westwood Hills Nature Center, St. Louis Park, MN; and, finally, Maggie Valley, North Carolina.



Stay tuned for much more from eastern Tennessee and beyond. For a preview, check my FLICKR site, which is linked on the right. I'm using a crummy digital camera for work and so the quality on the newer shots is a little lacking, but you'll get the, uh, picture.

Good to see ya back. I've got a 'newer' history of North Augusta book, put out for the centennial back in April - it's one of those 4x6" slick cover books that specialize in documenting different cities history's, I've got some on Shreveport, also. Not much else, already too hot!

Thought you'd like this:

For an unparalled selection of rare and unusualy historical architectural plans and photographs, go to St. Croix Prints.
This website includes a searchable database of original, hand-colored plans from most U. S. States and major cities.

Take a look, it's pretty cool.

Those prints ARE pretty cool. And out of Minnesota, no less. I should mention that City of Dust does accept gifts!

Nice to see you back.

I like the shot of the dead auto, do you happen to have any more of that particular car?

Jmhouse said...

Hey Smoove D.! Yeah, I think I do have a couple more photos of that car. At least I *THINK* it's the same car. Anyway, go to my Flickr site:

and check out the Death Rides photo set. Three of the last four photos are of that Plymouth.

Good to hear from you again!
