I’d read recently that there are only two sets of escalators in all of Wyoming — and neither set is in Laramie, a town in the southeastern part of the state that’s home to the University of Wyoming and roundabout 30,000 people.  From what I could tell, there’s little need for escalators in a place that, by and large, has few buildings over three stories tall — and in a place with few tall buildings, you can take in the majesty of the wide open skies all that much more.

Laramie sits between two mountain ranges, and there’ll be a future post showing some of that loveliness.  But for now, here are some photos taken around town, mostly around dusk.  All but the first were taken with the Pentax 6×7; that very top photo, of a nearby cement plant, was taken with the Leica M6.

That shade of turquoise blue is very popular in Laramie, from what I can ascertain.

That’s an empty plant in the photo above; a few minutes later, we made a u-turn of sorts down a parallel road and took one more shot as the sun peaked out from behind the clouds and inched ever closer to the horizon.  Photo below that: the local second-run movie theatre.  Gorgeous signage!

And of course, the open road.

    Simple but meaningful. I like it.

    Simple yet you can almost feel the atmosphere of the town through your images. One of those definite cases of a picture says a thousand words!
