Another Sykes-captioned slide. He calls it “Walla Walla County Farms.” This landscape may be compared to that in #66. And the sky too. Here we also get a Sykes motif. He includes the road, and such a fine road it is all rutted from a rain now long passed by. Sykes liked his subjects to take us both hither and yon. And that bush standing across the way will be an instance of his frequent fitting of compositions with some planting near at hand.
