Main Street has been an on going theme here for a long time. It started in a few small New England towns and I have carried it through to the south.
Almost always the photographs have been a monochrome format. I find it adds character and drama to the images. Some make the subject look better, some worse, but always more interesting.
Every town has a bail bonds store front on a side street. Not sure what that says about us.
A true southern fixture is the train running right across Main Street. Here I caught one passing through town on a Sunday morning.
Main Street is interesting, but the side streets have all the character.
I have learned the best time for these shoots is a Sunday morning. No people makes it much easier to get the wide angles and perspectives I want.
