Blue Window

An old garage.  I looked over and thought “Blue Window!”  And it was.

Rapidayton Flite-Fuel

Posted on

Between Gate City and Nickelsville, in Southwest Virginia, we ran across an old abandoned country store with several gas pumps displayed outside.  This one’s a gem.  The Rapidayton Flite-Fuel pump.  Price per gallon: a little over 35 cents.  My kinda pump!

Looking out of the tunnel

Posted on

There’s a nameless tunnel in Whitesburg KY.  It was once used by the L&N before the line went out of use in the late 80s or so.  The tunnel’s not very long, maybe 100′ or so, and features a creek running through it.  This is looking out the eastern face of the tunnel.

Rock Candy

Taken on a hot summer day.  I had to shoot quickly, since the M&Ms were beginning to melt.  Well, as you know, M&Ms, because of their candy shell, don’t actually melt in your hand, but if I’d tried to pick one of these up, it would probably have ruptured the shell and the chocolate would have escaped.  I just left them.  Odd, the squirrels were unusually active for several days after that.

Ma and Pa at the Flea

I saw these at the Telford Flea Market one Sunday morning.

Barns in the morning sun

This is actually just off a busy highway in Weber City VA.  The morning sun made the shot.
