skeletal

Those of you who have been reading this blog for awhile might remember this image:

Photobucket

It was taken during a previous winter's snowstorm. Since I've left my job a the newspaper I rarely drive this route but while running errands the other day I turned down Peck Road. Here's the same spot, just about 20 feet to the left of the original image:

Photobucket

It was all I could do to keep from running off the road when I spotted this gargantuan skeletal structures rising from what once was a corn and soybean field. This property had been acquired by the town park district but I have no idea what this is. My knowledge of local current events has suffered since I left the paper. In that environment you could barely keep from being informed.

Perhaps I'm insulating myself from the daily realities of developments push and shove.

I absolutely love that 'before' shot! So simple and elegant...would make a beautiful Christmas card.

Hi Zanne,

Thanks for visiting this morning! These photos are incredible, you truly are an artist. All of your photos are artistic....they are worthy of frames!

Happy New Year my friend!

I love the first photo also. Beautiful!

It's hard for me to see the 'new' rising in a place where it seems...out of place. I know economical development is a must for a 'forward-moving' society....but I just want it to leave my peaceful country setting alone!

A blessed and joyous New Year to you and those you love...

Rose - I thought about that image for a Christmas card. Maybe next year.

Lorianna - Thanks for stopping in. I love your site.

Lori - It does seem out of place. I too want them to leave our country setting untouched. We moved out here for a reason and not to be chased down by civilization!

The publisher the online blog Mill Creek Times has informed me that the skeleton is the new fitness center.

Hello, where by Peck are these isolated evergreens? I was just down that road and couldn't find them. Thanks!

They are on the west side of Peck Road just before you reach Kaneville. There are really quite small but the perspective makes them look larger. The Peck Farm House, nature center and observation silo are just to the left out of the frame. Hope that helps!
