Today I had a day off so I took a little time in maNDan to get some shots of the local interests in that town I spend half my childhood in. One was a wood sculpture I saw carved in front of me in the local park by an artist in the early 80's. He was carving native art all over the country so one would be in every state. It has been a local marker in this town ever since. The second place was my final resting place of the future... the North Dakota National Veterans Cemetery. I thought getting a shot of the canon they fire a couple times a year during Memorial and Veterans days would be interesting. I tend to go to the cemetery every week or so to show my respect to the lost military brothers and sisters of mine.
There are plenty of other spots to hit in Mandan but these were the two I hit today. I will have to go there and get some more of this towns interests in the future but for now if you have time go to Mandan and explore the area... it tends to surprise. Do it!
