A few weeks back I cruised around Shelby and Mills County (and Pottawattamie County) harvesting their town signs. This is the third collection of auxiliary images from this trip. Most of these pictures are taken in Malvern. I loved Malvern! It is a small town with a thriving art community! That kind of thing is my bag, baby!
Malvern is definitely firmly entrenched on the list of towns that I want to visit and photograph more intently after completion of this project. Also on that list are Creston, Walnut (also briefly featured today), Mount Vernon, Amana Colonies, and Rock Rapids off the top of my head. I really should write this list down.
Malvern accomplished everything I wished the Boone Art Council would have accomplished. Only the Boone Art Council ended in assault and it is a mystery if it will continue into the future at all.
The next time I share auxiliary images from THE TOWN SIGN PROJECT, it will involve Bremer County and a mystery copy of the New Testament that I picked up, even though I was advised that I shouldn’t.
