When I see this style I think NYC, or Miami, but not small town South Carolina.

I believe this was a clothing, shoe, store. A small department store design. I don’t know much else.

There is a second store further down the main street, same name. Both have probably been a dozen other businesses by now. At this point they are closed up.

If Main Street USA ever does see a resurgence I hope buildings like this get restored, not torn down for a square box with no character.

Blue-gray Gnat Catcher

A small non-stop motion little bird. But this was almost too simple.

Taken at a lunch break in a marsh. Ellen and two friends were trying to eat and catch shots of small/tiny birds at the same time. Very frustrating.

If you visit this site you may know I let others chase these ‘impossible’ little critters.

So… they ran back and forth, I ate, saw him, took the shot, I ate.

People can be as much fun to watch as wildlife.

If I knew the light was going to be this good I would have shot a few hundred images, not these few.
