A nice old clock in downtown Wichita.

River edge

I like this scene of calm waters and man made river edging. In the background is one of two bridges that leads across the rivers to the Keeper of the Plains.

If you saw yesterday's photo, then you've now seen the Troll from head to toe!
This guy needs a pedicure!
As you can see, he's not going to come out of his hiding place and gobble anyone up.

This photo was taken, by the river, not far from the Keeper of the Plains Plaza. From my understanding, this grate along the bike/walking path was over an unsightly drainage area that would of been costly to clean up and renovate. Instead, the city came up with an idea to add character to it, for a fraction of the cost. Those who look closely beneath this drainage grate, will find -- a Troll. It's a great addition to the area, giving something for young and old, to know about, look for, and find. October and halloween, seems like a good month to post this somewhat creepy, yet fun, and whimsical character.

Wooden grave marker

This is how graves were often marked during the covered wagon, and cowboy days. It reads "unknown", instead of a name. This grave marker is located beside an old covered wagon that had fallen under indian attack. It can be seen when entering Old Cowtown. It's, of course, just for depiction of the wild west era - not a real grave. I thought this photo would go well with yesterday's theme of cemetaries and tombstones.
