Dusk At The Stockyard

Judy and I were out scouting possible photo locations at dusk yesterday and came across the Euclid Stockyard in Chino, California, the parking lot empty except for the eighteen wheeler parked in front of the auction shed, its engine idling.  Despite the seeming wall to wall housing tracts, shopping centers and warehouse/distribution centers proliferating in the local area, there is still enough of a dairy industry and horse farms to sustain the stockyard.  But for how much longer is debatable, and the scene last evening probably portends the sunset of this type of life in our local area as occurring sooner, rather than later.
