Killing time in small town Alabama

Downtown Stevenson, Alabama; Jan 20, 2007

I don’t know if he was supposed to be guarding the antiques & junk in this shop, but he was only mildly interested in my presence.  Nobody was going to get that rug he was laying on at any rate. 

All of these pics were taken with an old camera I no longer own.  I believe it was a Kodak digital of some sort; similar to what I have now. I don’t think any of these pics were edited at all.  More pics behind the click!

This was a very sunny day with a very blue sky & lots of big, fluffy white clouds.  You can see it in the windows since I had a lot of trouble with reflections.

Had to get a better shot of this little guy because you don’t see many of these sort of lawn decor anymore, even in Alabama.  The window was a focus on the past & these guys are definitely a part of it.

Typical of many small town downtowns these days, a lot of the shops are empty or used for something other than a store.  I don’t know what is in this one now, but I liked the bright green & all of the other colors in it.

Closer view of the doggy.  He was a little more interested in me then, but he never did get up.

This is the original version of my background image.

& one more train pic before I close this post.  The railroad is a major part of Stevenson’s history.

For a few years growing up we lived across the street from the railroad track.  The sound of the train & its whistle I got used to, but the twenty minute cacophony of every dog in the neighborhood that came along with every one was another story.

  3. The look on that pup’s face is priceless. I wish I could be as unmoved by my surroundings sometimes.
