To help forget about the COLD and be reminded of warmer times, I present the following closeup images of insects. All taken in the 1990s using Kodachrome 64 or 25, Nikon F4, and 105mm micro lens. Their world is very interesting. More tomorrow.
Posing, Emine Moth
Small fly on thistle.
Very tiny leafhopper...about 1/2 the size of your pinky nail.
The William Chick Scarritt home (1887) continues it's return to glory with new, upper floor, windows. Special order thermal since they are curved. Only two panes left to install. This house has come a long, long way since it burned a year and a half ago.
The first church on this site was built in 1887. The above building was constructed in 1924 and operated as St. Francis Seraph until 1991 when the Parish was combine with St. John and Assumption to become St. Anthony. It's been vacant ever since. A local TV station did a story on the abandoned building in 2013. The city told the reporter the church would be gone by the end of the year. The school and rectory on the site burned and were bulldozed years ago. Seems sad. It's at 801 Agnes in the East Bottoms just two blocks from Knuckleheads.
