The Fujifilm X100v: Telling the Story of Rural Nebraska

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18vLdgBvbi0&t=5s This old church is close to my heart. She’s an example of the beauty that one can find even in your own “back yard.” This place is a well-known and photographed place in Nebraska and we are all watching and waiting, kind of like a slow-motion car wreck, for her to fall down.
