I didn’t make a note about where this was, but I’m sure it was Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro (they have Hoggle!). I thought this pic was interesting, even if I guess it is a bit of a departure from most of my small town & nature pics. Side note, I grew up watching Star Trek with my dad & can remember so clearly my excitement when the first Star Trek movie was coming on television. These remind me of the bald lady in that movie, Ilia, especially the one in the back. The front one looks disdainful. I’m pretty sure she thinks she’s better than me.
Taken with my Canon & edited slightly for lighting & warmth.
Another picture downtown. Not much to say about it other than the door goes into a burned out building. It’s on the side of the building I published Monday.
Taken with my Canon & edited for light & color.
A view down the sidewalk of the downtown Stevenson. When I was a kid, mid-late 70’s, it was full & busy. Now, most of the buildings are empty, or seem that way. Some of them look like they have something in them, but not a shop or anything open to the public. The first shop there is one of those. Something is in there, but I don’t know what. Next to that is a computer repair shop. It used to be a photography studio until the owner died. That’s where I had my senior pictures taken. Next to that, where the Pepsi sign & washing machine are is a thrift store. Up until some time in the 90’s it was a drug store with an ice cream counter in it. I loved that place (for the ice cream, not the drugs). My favorite flavor was butter pecan. Later I came to appreciate orange sherbet, especially in a float with Sprite. mmmmm. In the summer when we lived near town, I used to roller skate there, get some ice cream, & sit in the gazebo across the street to eat it.
Taken with my Canon & edited to fix the lighting & color a bit.
I’ve been doing a lot of nature & park pics lately, so I decided to do all pics around town this week.
This is the backside of a building downtown. You can see it’s been burned out & let go. I had walked through back there before but never paid any attention to it. I knew there were apartments above the shops with steps from the sidewalk, but had never seen the back staircases. I kind of wanted to go up there, but the stairway was rather narrow, plus the whole burned out, let go, & overgrown thing scared me.
It was taken with my Canon & I edited a little fixing the lighting & warming up the color.
The laptop can be tough to compete with for attention sometimes, but it sure makes a nice warm spot for a nap. This was taken with my cell phone. It can be hard to get pics of him sleeping because he gets annoyed having his picture taken & he seems to psychically know when it’s about to happen.
More painted windows at Shop Rite.
Paintings on the windows of the local grocery store.
Another day, another something broke on the tractor. I can’t remember if this time it was the battery, the starter, a tire, or what.
