Almost Made It

This jet ski is one of the displays at Pollard's Collection. A buddy and I were on a road trip when we accidentally stumbled across this place. I'm not sure if it is still there, but it was definitely worth the stop.

Skating Along

May 31, 2017. Boston, Massachusetts.

While setting up to take an image at the Central Burying Grounds, located at Boston Commons, this guy came riding through the park on his skateboard. I snapped a few shots of him in the frame, as well as a few once he had passed, and I thought the image with him skating along stood out to me more.

Per the City of Boston's website, the cemetery dates from 1756.

Stop

With the Mississippi River flooding, parts of Laclede's Landing on the St. Louis riverfront are under water. The two bridges in this shot are the M.L. King Bridge, which connects the states of Missouri and Illinois. The bridge in the foreground is the Terminal Railroad's high-line bridge that carries the Merchants Subdivision above the riverfront. The image was captured at the intersection of Laclede's Landing Blvd. and Leonor K. Sullivan Blvd.

Lone Minivan

A lone minivan travels north on US 83, on a hot and sunny day in the State of Nebraska. I captured this while traveling from North Platte, NE. to Badlands National Park in South Dakota.
