One of my unwritten jobs is from time to time to help various branches of our organization with their photography and video needs. Yesterday was such a time. One of the branches wanted to show case a business in their community and so I did a video of them discussing their product and business.
While I was there I shot some still photos for my portfolio because there was a lot of interesting shapes and fixtures that would make (at least in my mind) some nice images.
While these will never hang in some gallery they are interesting to me so I hope you find them worthy of your time. The Mississippi River Distilling Company is located at 303 North Cody Road Le Clair, Iowa.
Their web site is www.mrdistilling.com and you an learn more if you send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. They are very friendly people and they give hourly tours of the distillery, which is worth the trip.
I also went by the “Pickers” shop. Talk about a tourist attraction. Man there were people all over that place. I don’t know the name of the woman that works there, but I was told that it became impossible for her to do her job at the shop so she works out of her home now. The tourists took up too much of her time. 🙂
If you are looking for a wonderful town to shop in with lots of great food, shops, and interesting scenery a trip to Le Claire is something you need to put on your list of things to do.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Thursday and be careful.
