MARCH 8th : WINDOW
People I’m telling ya.. I don’t know if you’re out there or not …
Well..OK Lori.. I know you’re out there cause you actually comment ; )
To be honest it doesn’t really matter if or who may be seeing this…Because…. so far….I am actually really liking this Photo a day challenge.. It’s forcing me out of my comfort zone. I mean I have to actually LOOK for and AT things so much more intently.
In the process I am finding that in most cases it’s not hard at all to find the subject of the day… ( Now watch I probably just jinxed myself)
In fact it seems that once I get going on a subject,I am having a harder time sticking to just one Photo.I guess that’s a good problem to have.
The bad part of this at least for today… is.. I ended up running around town locally and into downtown Plymouth .
Three hours later and several dollars down… I got my pictures and a couple of odds and ends I probably could have done without….. ugh.
(* Damn You Cute shops !!! )
A trip to the library brought me right to my first Photo of a window or in this case windows.
Our towns Historical Society Building. ( I believe it used to be a Church or School )
I found myself thinking about who the people were that built and used this building were.. and what life was like then… I couldn’t go in because it was closed… but I do think I will take the time to go back sometime…It makes me want to find out more about the history.
Here we have ….One of Downtown’s oldest Churches First Presbyterian Church.
Love the way the door arch mimic's the window arch.
This old house is one of my absolute favorites!!! and not JUST because it is right across the street from the ice cream shop either.
It is just a gem of a house….. Oh what I would do to be able to get a look see in there..If anyone reading this knows the current owners, and can hook me up to get a gander. … I would pay a quarter and but them a cupcake.
I think I heard or read somewhere that a long time ago the owner of the Daisy company You know the makers of the
“Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!” built and lived in this house…
It is still one of the grandest homes in town!
I could have wandered all over town snapping pictures.. but as fate would have it.. I do have responsibilities .. big big issues to attend to .. You know not one.. not two.. but 3 toilets that’s right count them… that need scrubbing..
I know I know.. It’a glamorous life I lead.. Don’t be jealous.
As I wandered back to my car… just missing that pesky meter patrolman… ( after my ticket last year I still shoot him dirty looks.. however I have a feeling he may be thinking I just have a lazy eye ) anyway.. as I was getting into my car I looked up and saw this window.. Yes it is quite a bit different than all the others.. modern … utilitarian.. even plain..but I still think it’s beautiful in it’s own way…
and THAT is why I am really really happy that I decided to partake in this little adventure… Now wish me luck in keeping it going !!!
