I tried to be a little different with some of these pics. I'm not sure I held to the letter of the law for this posting day, but I tried to stick to the spirit of it.
The Noble County Courthouse at the center of Albion, which is in the center of Noble County, which is pretty much in the center of nowhere at all. The town has a population of about 1,400, and the county about 40,000:
The only photo here not taken by me. Just for fun, I threw in an overhead shot of Albion:
Albion's first motorized fire truck, a 1929 pumper, on Chain O' Lakes Festival parade day in June. Behind is the five year old fire station, and in the distance the end of our industrial park and the beginning of the rolling terrain of fields and woods around town.
The south side of Albion's courthouse square this fall. It's all white at the moment! I hate white.
Okay, not local scenery, exactly, but I kind of liked the picture. The flags of the country, state, and fire department, hanging inside the station.
Sept 11, 2005:
Taken from the edge of town, an autumn farm:
Our town parks manager wanted to keep the newest park as beautiful as possible, so when he installed an outhouse he went with something a bit more attractive than the usual privy:
Sometimes thing heat up here ... actually it's a training fire with an old barn near town -- otherwise I'd have been too busy to take the picture.
Autumn leaves in the sun. It gets pretty colorful in the fall.
Finally, an Albion sunset. We have some nice ones ...
