redbirds



In the middle of rural central Illinois lies the town of Normal. Home to my student daughter, Illinois State University and their team, the Redbirds.

I'm often drawn to images that have a contrast. In this case the clean and graphic billboard opposed to the old gas station and garage that supports it.

I'll bet the restrooms are locked, too.

My daughter briefly attended Drake University in Iowa. The mascot there was something like the Cyclones, but a swirling mass of dust wasn't very easy to identify with, so they added a red bird to the mix. Now I'm not sure just what their mascot is.
