Courthouses and Musings

Benton County courthouse and bell, Vinton, Benton County, Iowa

Sunday evening seems to be my most productive time for updating blog posts and processing photos.  Which kind of makes sense, if you think about it.  The weekend is over, I’m relaxing and winding down getting ready to tackle a new work week and everything that entails.  I’ve never been one to complain about Mondays, or to get all giggly over Fridays.  They’re just days to me… though I do admit I would like to transition to a three-day work week.

You’re probably wondering what a courthouse has to do with this.  Well, in the interest of full honesty, the courthouse has absolutely nothing to do with the days of the week.  I was just randomly musing.  Some friends have described me as a “folksy” person, and I would tend to agree with that.  This is a good example.

This particular photo, however, has always been a favorite of mine.  I like the exposure, the colors, the composition, the perspective.  It all comes together for me.  This photo was shot during a photo club photo shoot.  I just happened to catch this one just right… the week before and the ween after there was scaffolding around the clock tower as it was undergoing a lengthy renovation.

Vinton is a neat little town.  The downtown area has a lot of good photo opportunities.  I need to get back there sometime soon.
