Small Town Summer

color photo of rural town Main Street

A quiet afternoon on Main Street in a small Illinois town.

I saw this scene on a muggy, hot afternoon while driving through one of the very small towns that dot the banks along the Mississippi River in Illinois. It was totally quiet with no traffic on this Main Street. The young boy was engrossed in some smartphone activity, unaware of me. He was the only person I saw. Come to think of it, he is the only person I have seen anywhere in this town over the past few years as I drive through it.
