Mike Petty shot this video of an old abandoned theme park in Wichita Kansas. I found it beautiful to watch, even though I’ve never been to this theme park, or even the city of Wichita. It’s really well done. Please give it a watch–it’s kind of sad, actually!

I love having this new blog… I can post about anything now which is great! Since I didn’t have this set up a few months ago, I thought I’d post it now before I forgot again.
