Behind the same bar as yesterday’s photo. This was apparently the bar’s ways of accommodating smokers in light of the no-smoking laws. Apparently essentially having a complete room except for one missing wall qualifies as being outside–even though in this case there is a heat duct piped from the back room of the bar to the seating area.

Took this in the alley behind a bar in Glendive. Kind of basic digs for someone as special as a machine player (whatever that is), but I will say it is one of the cleanest alley spots I’ve seen.

¬†Another high concentration of balanced rocks in the same area as yesterdays, only this time on a small 3″-6″ scale. Fractals seemingly at work here for sure.

When I first saw these horses wandering around Makoshika State Park I wondered if they might be wild horses. But then I noticed brands on several of them so I guess that was not the case. Someone must have a grazing permit for the park.

An interesting sculptural shape, differing from most of those at Makoshika in the sense that in this case Mother Nature used a different organic medium for her art.

I don’t draw…I’m an artist

Zippy nails another insightful analysis of the current art scene. I see obvious application to post-modern photography as well. See more Zippy insights here.

This a mid-size balanced rock, about 3 feet high. It reminds me a bit of an old antique TV, like this one:

Good Work If You Can Get It

Three artists accounted for $436 million in sales in one year in the contemporary art market; two of them didn’t even have to be deceased to sell well. Details here.
