Lincoln Sample

The mundane diptychs are winning my attention these days and this one seemed emblematic of the small and seemingly dwindling main streets I've been passing through. The grain operations get bigger but the perceived life in these towns is eerily troubling.

I obviously live in a very different place but the number of abandoned buildings, closed stores and restaurants, and lack of cars tells me these places have seen better days.

If I were to pick a business to be in other than corn and soy farming, it'd have to be a gas station/convenience store. At least have customers.

All that said, the landscape has changed for the spacious. Human-scale objects are less and less common and the sky has taken over as the dominant feature. I told it would happen and it did.

Make pictures.
