Caught In The Dying Embers On U.S. Route 136, Tennessee, IL 62374

Well, what a weekend! It rained, rained and then rained a bit more. A leak I thought was fixed is still letting water into the house and the garden is like a fucking tropical rainforest due to my lack of action when it was dry - a slight rise in temperature and this deluge and I swear it has all grown 6 inches in a week!
So, with the drip, drip, drip ringing in my ears I took on a mammoth task - to locate where a few of my American shots were taken and in particular some truck shots. Now it was on a day when I drove about 400 miles - I know where I started and I know where I ended, but, was rather slack in noting where the damn photos were taken. So, I embarked on retracing my steps with the aid of Google street view! My start point was Lincoln, IL. Lincoln was my end point that day but I started to work back from there - have you ever tried to cover vast distances using it? I'm not knocking it, but, holy shit - it takes time. I have no idea how far I clicked on Sunday, but, eventually I breezed into Tennessee, IL. There it was, the truck I shot, success! It has fired me up to continue looking for the truck graveyard I photographed. So, if you have an interest and you had better, here is the street view of Tennessee, IL.

Did you hear the news about Edward?
On the back of his head
He had another face
Was it a woman's face
Or a young girl
They said to remove it would kill him
So poor Edward was doomed
The Face could laugh and cry
It was his Devil twin
And at night she spoke to him
Of things heard only in hell
They were impossible to separate
Chained together for life
Finally the bell tolled his doom
He took a suit of rooms
And hung himself and her
From the balcony irons
Some still believe he was freed from her
But i knew her too well
I say she drove him to suicide
And took Poor Edward to Hell

Listening to: "Poor Edward" (Alice) - Tom Waits
