Village of the Tin Man

When we were driving across Kansas a few months ago, I was taking iPhone photos out the window as usual when I spotted this row of silos. I get excited for any silo or grain elevator- but to see a whole ROW- wow! I snapped a few shots and told my husband it looked like the Tin Man’s village (we were in Oz country after all…).

We stopped at Liberal to walk around and photograph the grain elevator and saw signs for an Oz museum. It was closed, but I took some shots of a giant tin man statue. And thus an idea was born.

My photo group always comes up with ideas for topics for the assignments. I suggested FANTASY for the final- and used my Tin Man composite to create the book cover below. So much fun!

And now back to real life!
