Hays, KS is the site of the annual 5-State Photography Competition, and we were proud to once again have images selected for recognition by the Judges.
Images in this selection were from side trips, in and around Hays. This old stone home is in what little is left of Dover, KS, where a tractor dealer and cafe appear to be the only active businesses. Behind this building were the remains of a small 2-story barn with an unusual side window. The large silo was built nearby.
An outdoor wall painting with nearly 50 faded sunflowers was found in Ellis, very near to what appears to be a sketch of a tree painted on the side of an abandoned building. From site of the sunflowers, we saw the copula of white barn.
