A couple of years ago, my dad and I met an army buddy of his in Biloxi, MS. One of the places we visited had a wedding the night before the leftover food and drink had been removed but everything else was left. I love how the light shining through the liquid in these class containers shows as rings of shadows.

I also thought it unlikely to actually knock “whale watching tour” off my bucket list but my dad made that one possible on a trip to Seattle several years ago.
I love the stark lines of this iron cross against the sky. Terlingua cemetery
We visited Big Bend again during Christmas and one day I had to myself, I went into the park to walk the Burro Mesa pouroff trail. I pretty much had it to myself. It was quiet, I only heard one bird singing. My tinnitus is bad enough that it’s all I could hear besides the bird. I found an app for my phone that measures decibels, I opened it and the volume level was at 28 decibels.
A weathered wood and corrugated metal fence in Bodie, California. I find it interesting that at high altitudes, wood doesn’t weather to gray.
Bodie is a former gold mining town that has been preserved as a state park.
