A New York State of Mind

I’ve had New York on my mind lately as my wife wants to attend a writing conference there in February.  Although I would not be attending the conference, I would look forward to meeting with other members of Monochromia and doing a bit of photography in the city.  My last visit was in July of 2011 and I had only five hours to take in as much as possible.  This time I would have several days to explore and, hopefully, have knowledgeable guides to show me around…hint, hint!

The abandoned I 94 Cafe, located just off the interstate, somewhere near Bismark, North Dakota.  I’ve been spending a lot of time driving around North Dakota lately, but haven’t had the time to stop and capture many of the sights that have caught my eye.  I’m planning to take a week or so next year and explore northwestern Minnesota and the Dakota’s at harvest time when there are so many opportunities for contrasting colors.  I also discovered that due to the flat nature of the area, the sunsets last much longer than they do in the part of Minnesota I live in.
