Not spinning quite as fast as this long exposure suggests.The beautiful Livingston County Courthouse in Pontiac, Illinois. That's a statue of Abraham Lincoln as county lawyer in the foreground.The graveyard in Funk's Grove, Illinois. The flowers are not the English bluebells I remember from my youth, but the effect is the same.A victim of the Blackhawk War, John Funk is memorialized by this aged tree.To finish, one of a pair of magnificent wood burning stoves in the old church. Funk's Grove is just off the old Route 66, much of which parallels Interstate 55 in this part of Illinois. I whizzed along on this venerable highway, humming the theme to the old TV show. It was a enjoyable trip, even if I was not feeling at my best.
