I call this photo I took earlier this month Sugar #2 because I took it at the same sugar beet plant that, nine years ago, I took one of my most popular images, Sugar.

The clerk at the Irma Hotel said that they pretty much “rolled up the streets” in Cody about 8 p.m. This was taken at 8:30, so I guess he was right.

We’ve never planted sunflowers in our garden, yet a plant appeared on its own late this summer. It managed to produce a number of blooms before succumbing to frost.

A chair at the end of the hallway outside our room in the Irma Hotel overlooking the main drag in Cody. Buffalo Bill built the hotel and named it after his daughter Irma. Bill was not around much though and I pictured Irma sitting in this chair looking out over the street and wondering when she might next see her father.

This shot looks very painterly, like a watercolor. I did not do anything purposely to achieve this look. For those photo-geeks wanting to know, I think it resulted from the imperfect panning of the subjects and the noise reduction applied to the raw image–both which have the effect of reducing detail in an image. Purposeful or not, I think it has a nice look to it.
