sheridan in color

Pics from my recent journey to Sheridan. (See "Sheridan, Wyo Rodeo")



An old (and apparently in danger) barn I found on the west edge of town. There's a great deal of tension in the photo on the right.



After the parade, the Indians (Native Americans? After this trip I can't tell which is more PC) meet for song and dance. I must admit I was disappointed to see that the chief is white.



There isn't a roadtrip view I love more than a big green field or a big stormy sky in the late afternoon like these near Storey (left) and Sheridan (right).



Hard to imagine this lazy-lookin' bull springing a bareback rider into left field just a few hours in the future.



I'm obsessed with old signage. And I quickly became fascinated with the colors on this building.



Some texture on the facade of the Sheridan Commercial Co. building. An out-of-place lion greets visitors to the city park.



There's sort of a Western Hopper-ish feel to these shots that I love. The colors of the boarded windows are interesting, too.

Love the pictures!!! (I especially enjoy the retro-neon signs.) The old buildings with the bold colors- love it. ( I can see Jeff wanting to get his easel up there to paint it.) Thanks for sharing...!

I love the pic of the barn, but the caption really makes it. Major tension! I can practically see the barn shaking in its...barn boots
