Large old industrial wheel of some sort, steam powered something or other from ye olden days?, painted red, white, & blue.  Seen in the background of a field of trees & yellow & white wildflowers.Big Wheel

This is a historical cabin & old wheel of some sort in the city park.  I wish I could remember their significance, but alas I do not & naturally there is nothing online about them.

This photo is from Winter 2010.  It was taken from the viadock and is the view of the railroad tracks going into town.

It is mostly untouched, but I did add a bit more light too it & cooled the tone down a hair.  It was taken with the camera on my cell phone I think.

Another untouched sunset photo.  I liked the golden hue of this one.  I was torn between this one & another one with the Sequatchie Concrete Service more in silhouette, so I posted the other one below.  It is also untouched.  There’s a lot of timing to good photos.

FYI: For those interested, the name comes from the name of the valley we are in, Sequatchie Valley.  As to the origin of the name, from History of Tennessee Land in the Sequatchie Valley, “The valley was named for the Cherokee Chief, Sequachee, who signed a treaty with the colonial government of South Carolina. Historians who have studied to language and lore of the Cherokee differ over the exact meaning of the word, but the general consensus is ‘opossum, he grins or runs.'” (more…)
