rainy sundays

it was the kind of weekend where roast in crock pots and chili dogs on a sunday night feel so right. not much was accomplished but so much really was. i tried to get out and about today to shoot downtown but the rain was not very cooperative. but i thought you may enjoy a few of these.









and one sooc - just for georgia....

  6. Great shots. I love the old store photos. What is KRESS, by the way? It was a rainy Sunday here too. Rained ALL FRIGGIN' DAY LONG here. No roast or chili dogs for me. Why didn't I think of that? No we had leftovers and crab cakes instead. Yours sounds better though. Cheers!

  10. We slow cooked a roast yesterday and snuggled under blankets. I wore my mukkaluks all day and hadn't felt that cozy in months. Somehow that white door to someone's home reminded me of that. And of the holidays. Especially Christmas. Perfect.
    But I love the retro feel of the 'SKRESS' building signs as well.

  11. Interesting thing about Kress - well besides that's where my mom bought my school clothes when I was little - is that chain eventually went on to be come K-Mart. :)

  12. i love the second one and the second to last one. so atmospheric. and somehow patches of paint where someone is deciding the color just get to me...in a good way.

  21. relyn - that's the old train station - isn't the glass in it beautiful? I think it's original glass to when it was built.

  26. There's always something about "downtowns" that are nostalgic and makes you ache for childhood days and ice cream cones. Lovely photos!

  31. I'm so inspired by these! Love this look at your town...love the paint on the brick wall, the Kresse store sign, the domed building...all of them really. I love the processing used too...it has given them the look of old postcards... Did you use a texture? I have so much to learn...
