Long Pine, Nebraska

It shouldn’t be surprising that this drive-in has closed–the town’s population is less than 400. In busier days, Long Pine was a hub on the so-called Cowboy Line, which paralleled Route 20, for the Chicago and North Western railroad. Today this route is being developed into a trail for biking, walking, and horseback riding.

    K: So evocative. I’ve seen versions of this scene all over small towns in the Midwest. Great shot.

    Driving to/from Cleveland this weekend, we passed a couple drive-ins that we’d shot years ago. It’s interesting (tho not at all surprising, of course) how the scene changes depending on the light and the time of year. I think the above is a rare example of a successful high noon-type of shot. Usually my preference is beginning or end of the day.
