I took some time off and went to visit my sister who lives in the state where Red is the number One color; Lincoln, NE home to the Big Red Cornhuskers. I had a great time and was able to relax... and relax... and relax... Boy was that ever needed. ;o) Beware as this is a photo heavy entry and not what I typically share when it comes to photos but I love the shots. Be sure to click on the photos that interest you for a larger view.
This is Big Red country:
|Below: The state capitol.|
Above: My silly Sister at work. :o)
Below: Some shots around town.
I love the old buildings and the bricks.
Fun wall murals - they do it to cut down on graffiti and it seems to work.
Below: An amazing show of tiny embroidery- almost all were 100% by hand. I only wish I could remember the name of the gentleman who made them. Photos just can't capture how amazing these tiny works of art truly are.
Below: In the quiet of the cemetary. There is such beautiful artwork to be found here.
Below: St. Mary's Catholic church where I spent my formative years every Saturday or Sunday. This church is directly across the street from the Capitol building. They were holding Mass or I would have taken some inside shots as well. This church was featured in the movie "Terms of Endearment".
Below: Out in the countryside. You can actually breathe here. I love the wide open.
Below: Going Home... sigh...
