Dickinson's Bob Thomas captures the artistic beauty of abandoned farmsteads with digital photography. While listening to '60s music on the radio, he drives on the backroads of western North Dakota. "I stay on the roads. I don't trespass," he said. "It's peaceful. It's intriguing. I kind of wonder what it was like living there." Thomas has a lifelong love of photography, starting with his first Minolta 33mm in the 1970s. He studied art while enrolled in college.

Killdeer's Jessica Klym is using her skills of creativity to make colorful bouquets out of candy. "Basically, they are flower bouquets, only out of candy.

"I've made a base that was actually a six-pack of pop," she said. She wraps each candy in cellophane and ties it to a stick with a bow.
