Speed Trap

Vintage Motorcar Museum, Hardy, Arkansas

As I was coming around the corner into downtown Hardy, AR (from the North) the first thing I saw was a police car sitting in the corner of a parking lot.

Things Don’t Always Go As Planned

I had planned on getting up early and heading a couple of hours north of here to visit the Ozark Folk Center and photograph a few things in that area but, even though I woke up at 5am, I got lazy and decided not to go. Tomorrow is a better day anyway since the farmer’s market in Batesville […]
