In Morris County: New Flint Hills Landscape

In Morris County, 7x17 Contact Print

It was a busy Fall but I managed to squeeze one photo outing into the schedule. I had photographed this location before with the 8×10, but from that photo, I knew this scene was perfect for the 7×17. Not much had changed here in four years. Fortunately, the weather was good for this one day. Loaded up the trusty 7×17 into the trusty Ford Ranger pickup and off we went. The location is a few miles northeast of Strong City, Kansas.

A Turning Point

I have been debating with myself whether to make this change or not.  Its not lightly that I do this which I will explain later below. I have been mostly against this change for several months. But a turning point has been reached and its time to move.

What am I talking so vaguely about? I’m going to add a political dimension to this blog. What the hell does politics have to do with Large Format Photography? It could be everything as I will explain. Here’s the deal:

Barack Obama is a Socialist at best, perhaps an undeclared Marxist. He has rapidly moved he United States to Socialism under the guise of patriotism and what’s correct for the greater good. The principal players behind his election were definitely of the Socialist bent while others of his endorsers, including White House Staff members, are admitted Marxists. One, his so-called ‘Green Jobs” advisor has proclaimed himself to be a Marxist Revolutionary.

Those seem like harsh accusations. I expect a goon squad from ACORN to start hounding me in some away as soon as this entry is published. Tough shit. I’ll say it again; Barak Obama is a Socialist and perhaps a Communist. He wants the United States, as it was and as we knew, to cease to exist. In his own words as he has stated repeatedly to enact fundamental change upon the United States of America. I didn’t vote for him nor his “change”, but I don’t believe that a good number of well-meaning citizens voted for this sort of change either.  Two quotes from a recent article by Ben Stein are worth repeating:

“The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.”


“Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan of this country, way, way too cozy with the terrorist leaders in the Middle East, way beyond naïveté, all the way into active destruction of our interests and our allies and our future.”

The sooner Barack Obama and all his corrupt cronies are kicked out of power, the sooner we’ll have our cherished liberty and freedom out of danger.
