- Real Name
Cute little business and very interesting architecture on the building. Well done with the B&W treatment.
I like the framing and perspective on this one - it conveys that positive "small town" vibe.
I think it is a gift shop. Only open on weekends.Interesting......what kind of business is it? A restaurant? Clearly the community is mixed-zoning with residences there as well.....
Thanks Lyndee. The color image worked as well but the monochrome was more what I had in mind.Love this image!! The BW suits it perfectly...and...well, I just love it!!
John, the image just seemed to come together with the leading lines and surrounding features. I was about ready to call the photo "Do Not Enter" since that was a defining part of the image.Good job with the leading lines on the fence rails. And the do not enter sign should not deter someone from visiting
Thank you Wade. I am a big fan of the strong panoramic format as that is the way I usually visualize the scene I am photographing.Nicely done, and good crop!
Appreciate it Phil. I found the whole scene interesting from the old clapboard building to the left to the feature rich house to the right.A very interesting street scene, with an interesting looking house.
Thanks Paul. I may have to travel back there sometime when they are open to see what's going on inside.Cute little business and very interesting architecture on the building. Well done with the B&W treatment.
Gordo, thanks for your comments. The upper windows were one of the main features that caught my eye when setting up the shot.B&W works, nice catch, love the upper windows.
Thank you Ron. I am pretty sure that is a bench but given the small town nature of the scene it could have been a hitching rail!Nice shot with lots of interest. Is that a bench outside the building or a tie rail?
Nice and suits the b&w treatment. Like how some of the older buildings get repurposed by small businesses and many times they are art related.
Very kind words Terri. I remember often visiting my grandparents many years ago in a very small town in South Dakota. My grandfather was the owner of the tiny general store (he was also the town undertaker). Maybe this is where I get the inspiration for my love of small towns and all of the simple things in them that evoke such strong memories.Chrysanthemum colors are beautiful. I loved your shot of the little store. It reminded me of walking to a similar store with my Grandmother when I was a little girl. She never did drive so we often walked to the neighborhood store where she would buy me a treat!! Thank you for inspiring a happy memory.
