Lawrenceville Gas Station Landscape #2, 2013

There was a rabbit hiding back at the very edge of the lawn. One can’t see it here. I was the only one on the lawn and I know it had frozen in its spot as soon as I stepped up and began taking photos as I had more than several shots and later realized it was in them. Advancing toward the edge of the lawn, I didn’t notice the rabbit until I was standing about a foot from it, it was that perfectly still. Then it bolted into the tall grass and bushes.

The Weather for the Long and Short Haul is Cloudy with a Chance of Laundry

We are refreshed. I redid the website to something a little more suitable temperamentally. The website, I coded. The blog has a new look as well but this template I purchased because I wanted plain good WordPress functionality without too much effort.

We are refreshed, but refreshed in the kind of way you’re refreshed after a long, hard drive, you’re resting in a motel after a bath, you haven’t eaten anything except for a bag of chips, you really need to do the laundry, and the next day is focused less on a tantalizing horizon than on hoping your car will hang in there and get you to the next pit stop.

The Kubrick analyses, except for some short posts without too many images, have all been migrated over to the main website. I’ve some touching up to do and some more images and thoughts to add but will update on that later.

Google Maps Redux (repurposing street view). In April of 2009, the Google car traveled through a Kansas grass fire for a mile on Fauna road. Here and there are flames lapping the side of the highway. The grass fire mainly affected land at the highway’s edge but scorched black can be sometimes seen consuming acres beyond. There are no fire trucks. I read that every April, in the Flint Hills, ranchers set intentional blazes to produce fresh grass for cattle. Perhaps this was one of those burns, though I’m surprised to see no people attending it, and that it is principally road side, where cattle won’t be ranging.
