In 2014, I made many trips to Chicago for work and, when possible, tried to bring along a camera in order to take photographs during the Ohio portion of the trip. In early September 2014, I made one such trip. Time pressures allowed me little time for back-roads journeying on the trip, but I did manage to take a precious few shots, most centered around an interesting abandoned homestead. I present them here, without any thematic or pseudo-philosophic commentary. Count your blessings.
