  1. That strong diagonal line with the glaring white clouds that look like they are racing towards you combined with the very straight horizontal line of buildings creates a striking image.
    (I was lucky enough to work with one of the WW II code/wind talkers – Native American born in S. Dakota. Amazing person. Amazing lands)

    • Wow, how nice that you had an opportunity to work with a wind talker. I have a deep but sad respect for all Native Americans and will never shake the sense that I am an intruder.
      Thank you for taking the time to comment on my image. I greatly appreciate it.

      • Oh I feel it, deeply. How they allowed the town to be called “Custer” is somewhat infuriating to me. How must it make Native Americans feel.

      • One must be step lightly if it’s not your fight – and it is already written. It is what it is. The majority of the First People- the older ones- that I know have a quietness – more than just resignation, as if there’s a more informed, long range view and perspective. No one ever really owns the land – or names it – just temporary guardians/residents/intruders.
        We tend to be slow learners at times, but best to stumble along trying to open eyes so as not to trip any more than necessary as we make our way.
