This was right next to the yesterday's Pawnee Earth Lodge.
When the Pawnee went on hunting trips they used teepees for temporary shelter.
Gee, a little like Sinbad and I do with the Little House on the Highway.
As you can see by the poles this appears to be a store-bought teepee.
It is not that authentic looking, especially with zip-ties around the bottom
and ropes securing it to the ground.
The Plains Indians used buffalo hide for the covering, not canvas.
Nevertheless it was a very efficient design for a portable shelter on the Great Plains.
This feller lived close by and was very happy to have me come by and visit him.
I think he was bored and lonely being the only one there.
So people, when you have a poopy photograph, try converting it to black and white.
In most cases you can make the image more presentable in black and white.
If that fails then I call it rubbish and delete it.
But in this case I tried one more possibility out of sheer desperation.
I think this is the first sepia tone photo I have ever put onto the blog.
And I think it worked in this case as the subject matter leaned toward sepia.
