Statehouse Crane

The red crane, which is pretty good sized itself, is being used to put into place the pieces of the blue crane as part of the Statehouse renovation project that's been going on for some years now. The blue crane, when completed, will be the largest free-standing crane in North America. So I decided this was a Topeka Event and needed to be here. The workers that are waaaay up there putting together this giant Erector Set, if they have any fear, they don't show it. Just looking at where they are and what they are doing makes my knees wobbly!

Must Moon Again

At Lake Shawnee again, the Moon of August 24, 2010. The clouds were thin and thick and made the Moon kind of weird sometimes. The wind was up a bit, and the play of the silvery moonlight on the lake was especially nice, though hard to capture.

What Summer Is

Grown in Manhattan, bought at Rees Fruit Farm, sacrificed to the greater gastronmic good.

Moon, Clouds, Beauty

It was very cloudy the night of the Full Moon in July. So much so, that R. and I waited at the lake for a full hour after the time of moonrise before we could see her. Read these from the bottom up, please, I'm too lazy today to change them.
