OUAT: Tall-grass Prairie

Post by uuglypher »

Gone the bison and the folk who once lived lightly on this land.
The fossil fuel-powered plough now reigns supreme!

Ouat isn't quite as impressive as Smoka in terms of cool new words, but it's pretty good.

The photo is pretty good too. I'm a fan of hay bales, and the panoramic framing and golden light really show off their beauty. It has a little bit of a Gursky-ish look to it with those thin bands of color and elements.

Thanks, Min.
By the bye, OUAT (capitalized) is the acronym for “Once upon a time”.
In fact, I was told that when I was small I would use “supona” as if it meant “wonderful”. I finally stopped using it in that sense in the early 80s after my grandparents’ and parents’ generations had passed... but it still comes out now and then... This morning, for example, bright with an autumn chill and autumn colors was one supona morning!

I like “Smoka” - whazzat stand for?

Understood! That I had finally paid attention to upper and lower case typography of Bob’s title was indicated in my “lightbulb” note..
