To give you a taste, here's some from locally, taken today on my way to the next town up when I went to do the wash.
Oh and sad that I have to say this, but these are MY pictures, MY work. Don't take them. Don't use them without asking. Don't assume permission for all if I grant it to you for one. You may not realize it, but not only are these copywritten, each digital picture contains a tag from the camera that took it. I have that camera, and I will come after those who take my pictures, in as aggressively legal a manner as deemed necessary. I do, however, encourage you to take pictures of these same places yourself - you may have a whole new angle that I do not. If I don't tell you where the picture is taken, feel free to ask. Exploring is fun, thievery is not.
When I was in high school and college, this was a working ice cream stand. Sadly, I don't remember ever stopping there - we were always in a hurry to get to back to school, or it was night, or like a lot of ice cream stands back then, it was seasonal, so driving past on the way home Thanksgiving, Christmas or Spring break ensured there was no ice cream to be had. It has been cleaned up quite a bit in the past year; it used to be full of junk. Maybe someone is reconsidering opening it again.
The roadside chimney. Been there so long, no one remembers when there was a house with it. And honestly, the hill is rather steep for a house, but that didn't stop people. Someone tried to tell me that was once the stage stop. Untrue - the actual stage stop is two miles down the road, though that building is long gone.
Just some other pictures.
Did I say cemeteries and museums too? Well, I took some museum pictures today as well, but I'll save that for another post.
