So, I went back into my archives to find SUMMER FUN. Miss Chloe is driving the Duck Tour Boat in the Charles River this summer in Boston, Massachusetts. She was the first kid on the boat to volunteer to take over driving! She was rewarded with some cool stickers.

Reap What You Sow, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

I took this picture in 2000 in Wood River, Nebraska. We were passing through on our way home from seeing the annual migration of the Sandhill Cranes. We went to Cabela’s and passed by this sign and I also took some pictures of the Union Pacific trains.

I used Lightroom presets to isolate the red, blur the background and add a vignette. Makes the image look more ominous!
