Only the Shadow Knows in Siouxland, Sioux City

4 Apr

A radio program from the 1930’s, “The Shadow“, was a popular detective story about an individual heard but never really seen. And sometimes photography is like that, an image that provokes a feeling, mood or some other etherial interpretation. And sometimes “seeing” something mundane, as a shadow on a building gives fleeting thoughts to something, not really definitive, but there. And there are times when traveling about Siouxland lends itself to such an opportunity, if one only is aware.

      Becky,

      Thanks for the kind words. It’s really all a matter of perspective, yes?

      Washe,

      Hey. You wish. Actually they were removing roof shingles. But kids do play some in the street when the weather is much warmer. This spring has been anything but. Today’s morning temp was -2 with windchill.

        Us kids in Minnesota played field hockey in January when the weather was to cold to open the ice skating rinks 😉

        Washe,

        You kids were just plain tough. Builds good character. Plus better than staying indoors.
