POTD: Oil Patch Vernacular #1

POTD: Oil Patch Vernacular #1Oil Patch Vernacular #1 Rawlins, Wyoming 2014

Rawlins is the county seat of Carbon County, Wyoming and also houses the state penitentiary. But it seems most dominated by the oil industry. It appears to be a town that was built with just the basics needed to get the job done and with whatever materials where handy and cheap, with few fancy frills to embellish the surroundings. You might say it possesses a lot of butt-ugly honesty. It takes a certain mentality to appreciate that kind kind of environment enough to photograph it, so of course I took up the challenge when we spent the night there on our way to Colorado a couple of weeks ago.]]>
