Tuesday afternoon I had to walk up to the post office to mail a set of letters. They needed to go out right away, and I didn't have the car. So I steeled myself to brave the scary streets, or rather, I just put on my coat, and headed out before the dam PO closed.
I didn't bother to take my camera since I was in a rush, but once freed from my postal obligation I found myself in the downtown, and remembered my cellphone is also a camera.
Curious about the back alley side of the Victory Theatre, I went exploring.
The only incident I had in the downtown, if you can call it that, was this blond haired woman who asked if I had 25 cents for a phone call. I shook my head no, with a disgruntled look. She walked away saying, "I didn't think so you fucking asshole!".
I crossed the street to take a picture of the alley, and the BlondHo turned around, and walked back down the sidewalk like she owned it.
The downtown has quite a few empty storefronts. Too bad speculators have priced out many lower end entrepreneurs who would love to get ahold of these spaces.
The sun was going down, and stores closing up for the day.
But there were still a few people around, mostly heading home at this hour. I headed home down Dwight St.
Of coarse the sun would come out making beautiful light when I don't have my good camera.
Sometimes mistake photos look interesting too.
I began to take this camera phone thing as a challenge.
Experimenting to see what it can do.
Almost home, I tried to get some good shots of the old RR station.
The urban landscape. No! I don't live there..
hmmm.. How creative.
So I did make it home. No stab wounds, or gun shot holes. Maybe I'll walk to PO from now on.
