I took this photo: Good idea, poor implementation

outhouse cold seat

An outhouse door blown open by the winter winds leaves a girl out in the cold.

The absolute opposite of being on the hot seat.

Worksite management specifically rented outhouses as a “courtesy” to the girls on site.

I took this photo as an example of a good idea poorly implemented. Those who don’t have to sit down, don’t always understand the importance of latching the door.

The Painted Hills in winter, an unfinished canvas

At first glance, covering the brilliant colors of the Painted Hills with snow seems an affront. Slowly, though, you realize the colors are more vivid and the landscape patterns surreal; it is a study in negative space. The intensity of the snow and depth of the shadows create an otherworldly effect that makes this fabulous place more so.
