Do I stay in Iowa? I mean, I did have a swell time there. I did dabble in on the edges of Wisconsin, Illinois and Missouri as well. This particular shot is taken in the south of Illinois in the city of Murphysboro. It was odd, Iowa was as flat as a flat thing and I loved it, but, Illinois has vast stretches of flatness that really aren't very attractive. Illinois did however, in the north and south have some very beautiful countryside. This was taken in the south of the state.
When I'm in Crete I seem to spend a lot of my time photographing derelict and empty buildings, it wasn't a concious decision not to on this trip, but, this would appear to be the only blatantly empty building as far as I can recall. I did shoot a bunch of old trucks, but, you are yet to see them. Taken en-route to Bald Knob Cross. If you have an interest, here is an aerial view of Leady's Feed Store and the surrounding area, well, what is left of it.

Don't doubt yourself, gal
Let what's inside be your guide
You know darn well
