About Me 

I was born and raised in Cowley county Kansas 55 yrs ago, and always loved the flint hills and the stone bridges and buildings that were built from the local limestone. I always liked photography and with modern technology I can now fly my camera in some tight spots to get awesome shots of the things I love without trespassing or bending someone's fence. The picture quality is not Nat Geo quality but the shots make up for it. Please enjoy my pics.

I hope my pics will bring attention to these historic art works that need some TLC. Maybe some one with the means or connections to get some well deserved care will see them. Please Don't Litter! 2018

That's an AWESOME way to preserve that bridge! Looks like it was almost gone.
