I have no idea what these plants are, but something about the muted colors and textures is aesthetically pleasing. And then there is that random Missouri River picture. I was trying to not get run over by a snow plow when I took this so it's not my best effort, but this scene was calling to me. (Maybe I will return to it tomorrow.)
Even in winter, "dead" things can have some beauty it seems.
I have recently been on a huge "ghost sign" kick lately. In case you didn't know, ghost signs are old advertisements painted on the side of old buildings, usually brick ones like these. I have found some good ones around the city that I really want to take some pictures of, I just have to get out and do it. I also have to have someone go with me since a lot of these places are not in the best parts of town.
Which means I have to convince the boyfriend.
Anyway, these ghost signs are in an old frontier town along the Missouri River. Coca Cola is the obvious one, and then there was also a tobacco one next to it that was from the "Bull Durham" brand.
I am hoping to get out and find some more and maybe make a compilation of some sorts. Maybe make it into a book or something.
Let's hope I have the energy to get out tomorrow and get some more pictures taken.
