These photographs were taken from a moving vehicle, an idea shamelessly copied from other photographers. My experiment garnered mixed results, but I rather like these two shots, the movement blurring the summer crop fields and tree lines into simple bands of colour against the big blue sky, creating minimalist abstract compositions that emphasise the distinctive horizontality of the prairie landscape.
The vibrant days for this shabby building appear long gone. Yet it receives daily vitality as artists and students from the community college across the street visit the thriving art supply store within. The building also houses an enterprising arts organization that retrieves reusable materials from businesses, saving the items from landfill sites and redistributing them to local artists at no charge.
