Lineman for the County

As many of you know, I’m a big fan of Glen Campbell’s country western songs from the 60’s & 70’s. A few weeks ago I was driving north on Highway 207 towards Claude, Texas to shoot the sunset over the plains. I stopped at this freshly mowed wheat field and pointed my camera & tripod straight south to catch some beautiful clouds rolling by and the words from Glen’s famous song Wichita Lineman just popped into my head.

Have a Great Weekend!

  1. My Dad was a lineman for the telephone company when I was growing up, and guess where we we lived???? Thats right……..Wichita Kansas. The song was very popular around our household. Great images btw.

  2. So who gets to be pres of that club? 🙂
    Yeah I remember when……
    Something about the Texas Plains isn’t there. I have been tearing up the file cabinet to find some old asa 25 slide film I shot of a sunrise over cotton fields in that country a very long time ago. Thanks for the images to remind me of good things.

    • Thanks Mark.

      Probably only you, Ray and I that even remember Glen Campbell. 😉
