There actually are mountains in Texas... just not here!

PhotoHunt is a good excuse for me to post something other than music/running. Photography's not a passion of mine but taking pictures is something that I used to casually enjoy. Kind of amazingly, these days I don't have a digital camera (yes, I'm behind the times ... sue me) and not having that many photographs from through the years, pickins are slim. Mayhaps one of these days I'll git me one of dem fancy electronic picture takin' machines and I'll be able to post some better shots. But it looks like I came up with something...
PhotoHuntthe theme for this week:

The stated rule for Photo Hunt is:
"Post a photo, on your site, that best represents the theme."

Well, as someone who doesn't always care for rules,
I've decided to take some liberty with this week's theme.

(click images to see 'em bigger, if you'd like.)

Texas Panhandle... (or close to it) in early 1995 on a cross-
roadtrip of mine.

Photo taken with a camera and the lens is made of glass...
and the view is through the [glass] windshield.

Texas flatness in the PanhandleMore flatness,
same road: U.S. Highway 84, between either Abilene & Lubbock or Lubbock & Clovis, New Mexico.

Oil wells this time, on the same road, possibly south of the other pictures, more towards Abilene?

When taking these I must've been riding shotgun
while my friend Summer drove.

Great journey that was. A few more pics from that trip which I've posted
that you can see if you want --
Earth and Billy The Kid's gravesite...
my VW bus that I was traveling in.
