The final entry in this 4-part series, we return to Cary, Illinois. The rusted-tin roof of this low-slung outbuilding marked a gathering spot for some kind of local hike. The foundation of a long-gone building sits in the foreground. Eaves, Chris (Oct. 13, 2018). Americana Still […]
Today I kick-off a quick 4-part Americana series. We had a wet year in 2018, and sometimes that extra water makes for extra-interesting opportunities. The good people over at All Seasons Orchard in Woodstock, Illinois, set up a beautiful still-life scene with a wet spot in […]

At least I got this photo for my troubles.
