Joplin Daily Photo

A new photo of Joplin, Missouri every day.

A Moment of Silence


This tree was named either the Peace Tree or the Freedom Tree, depending on who you ask. Either way, it's painted as a place of meditation for those traveling through the city. The tree was stripped of its bark and major limbs during the May 2011 Tornado.

Fire Twirling


One of the street acts out at Third Thursday is fire twirling, juggling, and eating. It's a hot hobby.

Longboarding on Wet Streets


It had just rained, but that didn't keep a few folks from dropping their boards and sailing through the streets.



I was just strolling down the sidewalk when I saw this swirly six on a telephone pole. I'm not sure if it's painted on or just stain. Either way, it's really cool.



When Disney execs were working on the movie Cars, they sent artists out along Route 66 in search of inspiration. Can you tell what they found here along this stretch of the old road?

Carver Graveyard


The family of Moses Carver, the man that raised George Washington Carver, has their family graveyard about five minutes from Joplin's city limits. It's quaint and quiet. The tombstones have been restored after someone broke in years ago and tore them down.

Historic Joplin Tour


During the summer months, Joplin offers walking tours of the town. They usually occur during Third Thursday activities.

Anthony Benton Gude


This mural is just a couple of walls down from another painted by the artist's grandfather. This is the only place where the two family members have paintings shown together. This is in Joplin's City Hall.

66 Diner


Among the many diners along old Route 66, this one is among those in the Joplin Metro area -- Carterville, Mo to be exact.

Off to the Sunset


These tracks used to be home to a bicycling post master who had a special bike built to ride the rails. These rails are in the country just east of Joplin.



This house is just one Victorian house on the tour of historic downtown Joplin during the summer.

Bridging the Gap


This bridge leads the way in and out of the city on north Main Street before one gets to Webb City. It's been doing its job for years without troubles.



I took a bunch of shots of this fire hydrant experimenting with the light. It's just so classic!

Glass Jaw


This reminds me of some broken smiles I've seen -- sad but hopeful.

Cave Springs School House


At one time this little building was home to the Jasper County Courthouse. It occurred after Carthage was burnt during the Civil War, and there was a need for an official "meeting place." This is just a short drive out of town.

Peeking Out


A nice thing about the Joplin Metro area is that it has plenty of backroads to travel. I was photographing a church when I turned around and saw this peeking back at me. Hope you enjoy!

Theme Day April 1, 2014 -- Triangles


A fair near town on a hot, summer day.

Sunrise From the Side of the Road


I pulled over to catch a shot at the sunrise in my mirror. It was worth it.

Third Thursday People on the Street


A night scene as Third Thursday wanes down for it's March 2014 session. Joplin celebrates downtown Third Thursdays March through October. I missed the first day theme this month, so this is my late update to it.

Get Yourself a Haircut


I've always wanted to take a picture of this building since I first saw it. Now, I share it with the world. This takes DIY signage to a whole new level. I like the graffiti feel to it.

Coming Soon ...


Hello again!

I've been meaning to start posting on this blog once more, and it seems more important now since the tornado hit Joplin. However, in the aftermath of the storm, I felt the presence of yet another photographer in the midst of the storm-ravaged town would just be another inconvenience. The recovery efforts are going strong, and Joplin is now getting into the rebuilding phase. With that in mind, I believe the time is right to start back up. Victoria and I are not as close to Joplin as we have been in the past, and taking pictures involves a special trip to town. We have to take photos when we can get them. The photos might be slow coming, and we might have some gaps in time between each one, but they will be here soon.

Thank you and see you soon!



Wilder's on Main St. is a piano bar/restaurant. It has been in Joplin since 1929. I've never eaten there myself (a bit too expensive for a poor college student like myself), but I hear the food is excellent.



Sidewalk and parking lot on Main St. It was a bit hazy out the other day and the bright sunlight through the clouds lent the scene a bluish tint.



A stop sign by the Railroad tracks from the bridge near 7th and Michigan.
