for some reason, Three Wooden Crosses always catches my eye...must be Randy Travis or something
Thank you, great series!
I was expecting to see flood-related pictures. There must be a real opportunity to catch interesting shots there right now because of that (but be safe if anyone does try).
The national media, lost without a bombing or an explosion, has turned its attention to high water. It's not as bad as you read or heard here in beautiful southern Illinois.
Good to know, spring flooding often causes hefty damage. Stay safe and dry.
What area of Southern Illinois is this? I grew up in little Egypt myself... where the rivers meet, was pretty much my back yard.
Monroe and Randolph Counties.
Right on... Spent my first couple of decades on this earth in Pulaski county myself. Small world
Nice shots Caimi. 1+3 are my favorites. What is the fort's name and era?
No matter how far away you go, there is nothing quite like southern Illinois.
French built in 1720, Des Chartres.
The sad truth is... thats both a good and bad thing, haha... ;-)
Great set, I particularly like No 3, Bluff Road. :smile:
Ours was Fort Ouiatenon, a humble wooden structure 1717-1791. These are from our annual re-enactment. It's a fabulous event with thousands of re-enactors, and endless amazing photo ops.
Recasper: you can take the boy out of the country . . .
Chrome: nice ! Deschartres also does an annual thing. Everything has to be as it was in the early 1700's. The hilarious thing is that they serve soft drinks. But with no ice!!!
