A little taste of tanelos from the front yard

17:29 CST Sat 11 Dec 2004, Manhattan, KS:







Edit, 06:50 CST Sun 19 Dec 2004: I started shopping for good photography communities.
Remembering that nerdzrool studies photography, I joined three communities she had listed that looked useful: creativephoto, digitagraphy, and fotography. All three are in my "Photos" filter, and the first is in my "Art" filter as well.

What's that concrete thing? A water tower?

On the right hand side of the second photo? Yes.

There's an external staircase attached to the humanites building at the Moreno Valley campus of RCC. On the 3rd floor platform leading to the staircase, you can look out over the city at night. There are a few scenic places like that around my campus; if I had a digital camera I might share them, but alas... =)

I am used to being surrounded by foothills and mountains (I live in a valley). It's odd for me to imagine being in a flat place like that.

2-3 megapixel ones can be had for way cheap now.
4-5 MPs are still in the $400-700 range for decent ones, but I'll bet you could get one with a pared-down set of features for under $300 if you wanted to.

My Canon S50 PowerShot was my 30th birthday present from my aunt Camille and uncle Rene.

I would like to see your pics; please do post them (see above) if you get a digicam.

You think this is flat?
Try chambana in East Central Illinois.

Agreed! I was quite surprised at how hilly Kansas is when I moved out here. Everyone says that Kansas is flat, but compared to Central Illinois it's like the Rockies. Actually, most of Illinois is flat. The only parts that are not is a small ribbon that runs along the Mississippi and Southern Illinois.

Yep.
You know Champaign was drained by the Dutch?
(LOL, that sounds like a very bad episode of Buffy, but anyway... it was. It was a swamp until c. 1840, when they moved in and put in drainage tiles. In a few years, we had the town we have today.)

Yep. Just look down at Bloomington-Normal from a plane - it resembles nothings so much as one of sui_degeneris's quilts or crochet shams.

Hope you had a decent Christmas and New Year's.

The story behind the pic
Thank you!

My mum mentioned that there was a nice sunset to be seen outside the window, and so I threw on a jacket (I was in a short-sleeve T-shirt and it is under 10C here now) and headed out.

A lot of sunsets are giving me ideas for Tane-Los, which has them like no place on Earth other than perhaps Santorini, Korcula, and Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines.

Kansas is no Korcula, but wot are Haxies for?

I wonder what it is about a pretty sunset that can hold us all spellbound.

Beauty is Truth, Truth Beauty
... that is all ye know on Earth, and all ye need to know.

For me, it's that colors evoke not only emotions but specific thought-patterns. There's something very anticipatory about both dawn and sunset for me (see tanelos for more).
