I love small towns. Especially those that have found ways to remain economically sound in terms maintaining a vibrant city shopping center. Main Street in Stuart, Virginia, located in the high foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, on a busy Saturday, is a perfect example. Visiting the town with my wife one weekend, I wandered around making photos of various things I saw, while she shopped for materials with which to make more of her wonderful quilts. Nothing special about any of these photos but I believe they give one a sense of the welcoming nature of the town.
