Some very uninteresting photos and videos of Eastern Illinois

Just experimenting using my phone’s camera which I’ve never tried

After many By Guess, By Gosh, and By Golly moments, and I do mean many — I got it figured out — I think!

They might think its all intuitive, I don’t!!


Raleigh ready to roll as the afternoon sun weakens

Rolling south on 7th Street aka 1550E/Hospital Road

(Hospital is off to my left)

Approaching the Grant Township garage

Harvested corn field

Issues on the Mississippi river have disrupted shipments and local elevators are filling up

Not uncommon to see corn yet to be harvested

Just past the Railroad

View south along CSX right of way

JR’s Recyclables  —  JR has closed shop for today

Sun is getting low

Rode on west to 1450E and reversed

Harvested soybean and corn fields

North Fork and attendant trees in the background

View north with town barely visible on the horizon

So, yeah, some nondescript photos the product of me monkeying around figuring out this phone and how to connect to PC etc

Some short videos:


Graffiti free bridge rails  — for now

Headed back east

Looks like Skinny Shawinny in pacing me  🙂


I did find a nice wrench lying on the road

    It is NOT something that Suzanne (or Laura R) would ever do, but for my purposes and skill level, I find the phone camera quite good enough. You did a great job on your first trip to use it. I don’t normally take videos so am definitely not versed in that aspect. You can actually edit photos you take but that may be for another lesson sometime. Nice job Rich.

      It was, lets say, a ‘learning’ experience. 🙂
      I do like the quality of the photos, although a long way from professional — plenty good enough for me.
      I did see the edit feature, but my 3 functioning brain cells have yet to cool off from the first round. LOL
