I don’t think I have walked down an old Main Street like this since Connecticut. I usually don’t take a very flattering picture of these towns.
Most small towns have an old downtown which has seen better days, and my first choice is to shoot black and white on a shorter lens. Again, not very flattering.
The character, like this original 1930’s Art Deco store front, comes through anyway. Just in a different light.
Besides, that’s the beauty of this type of photography. Nobody wants to view a bunch of boring snap shots anyway.
