Photographer's Note

Like the shot I posted yesterday, this one is somewhat random. It is one of only a very few photos I was able to take as we passed briefly through the state of Mississippi on our way from Nashville to Memphis (neither my wife nor I had ever been to Mississippi or Alabama, so we took the long route in order to pass through both). On our way, we decided to make a stop in a small city called Corinth in northern Mississippi, best known for a Civil War battle in 1862 focused on an important rail junction nearby.

There's a surprisingly good museum (the Civil War Interpretive Center) run by the National Parks Service here. We arrived at the museum late on a Sunday, near closing; we also arrived just after a very large storm, and there was no one else there. So we left our little red rental car, enjoyed the museum, and I snapped this shot on the way back out; I liked the warm light on the wet pavement, and the bright red car all alone in the parking lot.
