My weeks have been so busy they are starting to run together. It seems I just got home from the writers conference in Kansas, and now I'm at the Antique Show in Conway Arkansas and getting ready to pack up from it tomorrow. I fell asleep so many times while choosing five pictures for today's post that it took me over an hour to get it done. I would love to go home tomorrow night and sleep for two or three days. For now, though, I need to get this post finished before I fall asleep again, so here goes!
This evening after we closed our booth, Joe and I went to see a friend at his antique store. He had some great old signs. This one looks a little neglected, but it's purpose was remind drivers to pay attention and be aware of children who are playing in the area. Neglecting to do so could result in a fatal accident.
2. Signs of Spring
While out, we saw this tree in bloom. Joe said it is a wild black cherry tree. I'd love to come back and take more pictures after the fruit matures and ripens.
3. Last thing you bought
We bought this old motel key and fob from him. I am familiar with this style from vacationing with my family as a child. Most motels today use the cards that you swipe to unlock the room door. If you forget and take the card with you, it's no big deal, they just activate a new card. Notice the "sign" on this key fob says "drop in any mail box. We guarantee postage." If you forgot and took the key with you, they needed it back, so they used these fobs with their address on them to make it convenient for you to return the key.
I went outside Chris' store to find shadows. The sun was behind me, so I tried to capture my own. The big shadow on the ground in front of the door and extending up into the glass is mine. I used an orange filter in my cropping program to bring it out a little better. I like the thin shadows of the roll of barbed wire on the left door better than my own.
5. Four things
This scene caught my attention as we waited for the traffic to clear enough for us to cross Highway 64 on on the way back to our motel. I was intrigued and delighted with the differences in the four houses.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I would love for you to leave a comment. I will be commenting on your photos tomorrow evening after we are finished packing from the show. Have a great Sunday!
