The Weeklies

Isthmus and The Onion

The Isthmus and The Onion

If you were to define a city by its weeklies, this would be a solid description of Madison.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.


  1. Weird names for a newspaper, no?

  2. Love how you’ve created such an interesting abstract composition out of such an ordinary scene. Really nice!!!

  3. I like how you managed this composition.

    Interesting names…The Onion is also and internet spoof news site. It has some wild and crazy stuff on it…some is really funny. It is popular among young people my kids age from what I can tell. I haven’t gone to the site in months. Some people actually fall for the headlines and think they are real..that is probably the funniest part.

  4. And here I thought that only very small towns still had weeklies!

  5. The Onion? LOL! That means Madison has a great sense of humor. 🙂

  6. I like onions. Good name for a newspaper.
