In late spring this year, I had an opportunity to make a series of photos of Fremont, NE for a Fremont Chamber of Commerce publication.  I used to camp and swim at the State Lakes, and hang out with friends at Midland College, but that was many, many years ago.  Those places are still there, but considerably changed for the better. I enjoyed my opportunity to play tourist, to see the sights, and to get to know the area better.
