Railway Graffiti, Dawes County, Nebraska

On a Sunday morning in June, I drove miles on a gravel road paralleling the train rails in northwest Nebraska, looking for another image in my “PlainSky, Nebraskans” project. I knew I wanted to use the windows created at the bottom of the coal cars to frame the issues of farming, landscape and social change in the area, but I had no idea I would receive the gift this patch of graffiti would offer; and at the moment of the shot, two red-winged blackbirds chose to land on the fence at the right of the frame.

The first show opens in April 2013.
