The Old Factory

Finding deserted factories can be fun…when you have a camera along. The smokestacks “make” the photo in my opinion. It’s an old cotton mill in the Piedmont region of North Carolina.

Reading

I thought this was a really nice work of sculpture, near a library in Danville, VA. It has a lot of meaning for those of us who remember how much we read when we were kids. Not like most kids today…that’s for sure.

Lunch on a Train

As I was driving through a part of Eden, NC I spotted this old train station and decided to pull over to take a couple of photos.

As I crossed the tracks I spotted a parked, but still running, train engine with several cars in tow. Walking beside the train was a person I assumed was the engineer, with a paper sack in hand. I wondered why the train was parked, and what the bag held.

Walking up the road a piece I saw The Railroad Cafe, which apparently was the place the engineer had just visited, to get something to eat, with parked train waiting to proceed on its journey…where ever that was. And so ends my short story of lunch on a train. You gotta love small town America!

Painted on a Wall

When I see old advertisements painted on the side of buildings I have to stop and make a photo.

Lines and Signs Part 6

All this week, each day, I am posting a photo I made with the subject “lines or signs.” I decided I need to diversify my photo posting a bit with something different. This is the last one…hope you enjoyed this week’s photos!
