There’s a story that goes with this image revealing how far a photographer might go for the shot. DH pulled over into a safe spot, I jumped out and took a few shots including this one but I wanted to get more of this old barn so I cautiously walked up the two lane road, which had very little in the way of a shoulder for me to stand on, to try for another angle. I couldn’t step off the shoulder and into the grass – which I have done before for some roadside shots – either because there were weeds up to my knees and they went straight down into a deep ditch.
And then I noticed this horrible smell. I looked down and saw what looked like part of a dead deer in the brackish water and weeds. Time to go!!!
(Upon re-reading this post I realized what I did by walking on the narrow shoulder was not too bright. There is no photo out there worth getting hurt for. I will never attempt something like this again and neither should you)
A restaurant in Delaware, Ohio that is. In business for over 150 years; minus the two years rebuilding it after an arsonist destroyed it in 2002. It’s name comes from the nickname locals gave the original business, a bakery, from one of it’s staples. Wonder what that staple was 😉
I decided to shoot this iconic sign from the middle of the street instead of from the often seen photo of the sign from across the street leading to the restaurant; happy traffic was very very light that day. Almost everything was closed in preparation for the 4th of July parade a block away.
The Strand Theater is a movie theater located on East Winter Street in downtown Delaware, Ohio. Opened in 1916, it is the tenth longest operating movie theater in the United States. Notice anything interesting about the marquee? I thought that was great…
