Doesn’t this just want to make you move to South Dakota?  Not me … even though it looks like it might be fun for a few days.  Notice the animals way in the distance.  At least if they get out, it is not like they are going to get out on the highway and get hit or cause a wreck.  Next is one more of an old house in Charleston.  This was down several blocks from where we were staying … I still have a lot of variations of this place …

I very seldom use frames on my images and I have a accumulated a lot of them, along with textures, I have been seeing what I can come up that adds something a little different to these images.  The first image was taken by my friend Bud Lovoy and I made the second.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

Here is Payton on her first ice skating experience at Avalon in Alpharetta Georgia.  This is an outdoor skating rink and it is nice!  I do not know what they are going to do when it gets summer, but it is HOT in Georgia in August.  However in December, it is nice and the setting is gorgeous.  I turned around and took a photo of the the Christmas shoppers and decorations …

Those are apartments or condos above the stores on street-level.  I guess that there is a whole group of people who cannot get enough shopping and have to live where they  shop.  It sure beats all that I have seen, well maybe not, but if someone ran this idea by me I sure would say that I could not imagine anyone wanting to live in the middle of a shopping mall complex with thousands of people running around.  Next is one that I made in Charleston of a church steeple … it is not going to win any awards, but it is an interesting image …

I am going to do something else with this, but I have not thought that far ahead yet.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank
