On a cold, dreary, foggy day, this rural driveway into the woods seems mysterious and even a bit dangerous.
This is a spot just down the road and around the corner from my home. I drive by it quite often. It never caught my eye until I drove by it slowly on a foggy day.

When people ask what kind of photographer I am – meaning landscape, portrait, wildlife, etc. – I typically respond by saying, “I just photograph whatever catches my eye.”
On a recent getaway to celebrate our upcoming wedding anniversary, Sara and I stumbled upon the Indianhead Motel. We thought the neon sign was very cool…so much so, that we stayed the night. The Indianhead Motel is located in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin (pop. 13,661).
If you’re wondering why Chippewa Falls may sound familiar, it’s because it is the birth place and hometown of the fictional characters Jack Dawson in the movie Titanic, Grand Slam of G.I. Joe, Dr. Jennifer Keller in the science fiction series Stargate Atlantis and the title character of Annie Hall.
By the way, the accommodations were acceptable and quite reasonable, but not as cool as the sign.
