73 Driving to (and from) Cleveland

Mississippi that is! We finally took a day to run down to see Chip's parents and the rest of the family. There are always so many things I want to pull over and snap pictures of on the way, but we never actually do it. One, my "big lense" just is not big enough for some things. Two, it just never seems practical to pull over on a highway where everyone is going at least 65. Three, we are usually in a hurry to get where we are going before Connor's feeding timer goes off :)

On the way down I tried snapping some pics through the windshield, not the best way but it kinda works ...

Sometimes the white balance is off

sometimes the shutter is not fast enough

sometimes you can't get a good angle

there is no sometimes about this sight, lots of agriculture!

Sometimes the natives are happy ...

sometimes the natives are restless ...

One the way back we did pull over for my favorite spot. This is an old service station/garage. It looks really cool in the winter. I will have to get some pics when the trees are bare.

here is the "boathouse" without the blur

And the new sign of the times CORN ... it is everywhere. These fields probably sat fallow for the last 20 years, but farmers can make more money growing the corn than collecting that check from the government.

Ahhh, the rural Mississippi life ...
