POTD: Blue Skies and Tailwinds

Blue Skies and Tailwinds
State Highway 487, Wyoming
2011

After bucking too many gray winter skies and headwinds in the last few months (both literally and metaphorically) it’s nice to finally experience some blue skies and tailwinds (both literally and metaphorically). It probably takes someone with Kansas roots to think of photographing such a flat, empty landscape when there are so many mountains around. I find them very soothing, at least in the right dosage. We’ll see if I get my fill by the time I finish my visit to Wichita.

Here’s a song about going with the wind, courtesy of the Irish band The Pogues. If you need a little help translating from Irish english, the lyrics can be found here.

  1. I have a couple of tunes by The Pogues. Irish, Cajun and Mexican bands are the few that you can play an accordion in and get away without being beat-up. Some day I’ll break out the old box and see if I can peck-out some Irish drinking songs. If you like Irish drinking songs (“any tune with lyrics” according to some Irishmen) then give The Elders a listen. They’re from Kansas City.
