This is the only photograph I shot during our two day drive from Omaha to Utah to Idaho. We saw many interesting things; one of which being this discarded bottle of pee near an exit ramp. No, it is not mine nor Ellen's. Living in Atlanta and on the road these past few months has made me realize how unique a place Idaho is. We have already seen a girl at Wendy's literally take one full minute to put fries and chicken nuggets in a to-go bag, a guy hitting toys off a shelf onto the floor with his cane at K-Mart, a thrift store charging $400 for a bicycle (not a misprint), and air-fresheners hanging off the the back of a toilet at a grocery store. Incredible place.

Since we arrived in Omaha last week I have neglected to do anything photography related. We have been golfing, skateboarding, saw the Faint, and have hung out quite a bit with family. I was able to get out tonight and shoot a couple things, but nothing spectacular. I figured it was good to get at least one Omaha installment in on the blog before we set off in a couple days. Hopefully more is to come on our trip.

Last week we went up to Mackinac Island to ride bikes, eat ice cream, and hang out with family. These photographs show the island from across the lake, and island cottage life. Who would want to live live on a road riddled with horse poo and pee, though? Nice place to visit, however.

After arriving in Michigan and exhausting the Rogers' blueberry supply, Ellen and I thought it would be just, and fun, to go pick some more. Fitted with some cool hats Ellen's mom found for us, we set off to fill our buckets. We ended up picking just under 20 lbs. of blueberries (actually well over 20 if you count all the ones we ate). It is amazing. Now I think we'll have enough for our pancakes, muffins, crisps, cereal, etc.

Yesterday Ellen's mom took us to tour the Alden B. Dow house. It was pretty amazing. You really can't find any fault with this 20,000 square foot office/home. I would live there. Later in the day we walked around Dow Gardens and saw some interesting scarecrows.
Monday started our road trip back to Idaho. We drove up to Stow, OH for our first stop at the Garrison's. These are two of many images made, and to be made on our three stop tour. While in Ohio we played the Wii, celebrated a birthday, and visited a waterfall, among other things. It was fun and well worth our while.
