    Beauty Amongst Despair


    Being an April Fool I was dupped, but yet satisfied. Today I got wrapped up in the antics of iReport a midst a photographic journey. I wrote iReport, "Rockin' Nothing'.


    After thinking about it I though, "why not put put this on Sound Off?" I couldn't find a reason not too. I am happy the way it turned out.


    With Janesville being an ex-GM town that was devastated by a shut down I wanted to show beauty amongst despair. Monterey Dam public fishing area is a mile west of the GM Janesville Plant.


    This is the context of the article, "With the elections over and no real stories of interest, since the Paul Ryan hometown Vice Presidential runner up is from Janesville, I embarked on a task for nothingness. In Janesville there are a lot of good fishing spots. I thought to myself when seeing this assignment, "There always beauty in nature."

    These rustic photos are proof that we sometimes forget that 'nothingness' is not a bad thing. We like to rock it on the Rock River."


    Here also is one of the photos that were uploaded from the iReport.


    In the spirit of Tom Petty sometimes, "You have to get up… and climb that hill again."
