Time to play again! It's the weekend, which means that you need to visit James at Newtown Area Photo and his fun weekly event Weekend Reflections. James is such a gracious host that people from all over the world post their beautiful reflection photographs for this meme.
DH and I took a road trip to South Texas on New Years Day. One of our stops was the little town of Gonzales. We found some neat old buildings and had alot of fun. Also had a very nice man come up to our car as we were leaving to "introduce" himself and ask if we were just visiting. Gonzales is a very small town and we think that someone called him and told him some "strangers were taking pictures". He was quite nice and when he was satisfied that we weren't up to anything nefarious, wished us a Happy New Year and on our merry way we went. It probably didn't hurt that DH dropped his bosses' name, who happens to be a famous artist from that part of the state!
This first building is an old, meticulously restored Mobil station. We aren't sure if it is an antique store now or what, there was no signage visible. But it really is a beautiful building.
This next building is a real "blast from the past" This is a functioning, full service gas station in the middle of town. It appears to be frozen in time, at least until you look at the prices on the pump! Played around with this in B & W, I just thought it suited the subject. I'm still learning what will make a good B&W photo, as the number of shots in my "dump" folder will attest!
Hope you enjoyed our little South Texas Cruise. Now make sure to stop by and say hello to James, you will be glad you did!
