Photo #N20-17Handsworth Elevator, #1

It was a clear, chilly night during the April full moon when I arrived at Handsworth, Saskatchewan to photograph this toppling grain elevator. The moon was bright as I drove up and I could see that little remained of the town.

These former towns and villages remind me in some ways of the deserts of Southern California. Long after the town is dead and most everyone has moved on, the occasional hearty soul remains choosing to tough it out in the heat, dust and desolation. Why? They each have their reasons. That's what makes it so intriguing.
