I drove north from Arroyo Hondo and stopped at a trout hatchery on the Rio Grande River and took this photo. It is a creek feeding the Rio Grande, but I can’t remember the name of the creek. I shot this from a foot bridge over the creek using my Toyo VX-125 4×5 film camera with a Rodenstock 135 mm lens on Ilford HP5 film.
The theme lately is old, abandoned buildings. I have been traveling quite a bit and like to take back roads and invariably run into these cool old structures. This old abandoned school house is in a Oklahoma ghost town named Avery, just south of present day Cushing. I had been past this school before and on my trip to Cushing this past week I stopped and grabbed this photo of the school with my Toyo VX-125 camera. The downside of this photo is that I dinged up my Toyota FJ cruiser pulling out from in front of the building. Dang.
