This was taken in the mountais of Georgia. Whats steaming in the drums is boiled peanuts. This store had just about everything a person could need. From boiled peanuts to bib overalls.

My kinda place! I love these little stores, I used to stop at everyone
on my way to my grandpa's. Did they
have Indian moccasins? That's one thing I always bought! Boiled peanuts sound great! This is a wonderful capture with beautiful sunlighting, it looks like morning. There's so much good stuff
in this image, love the composition!
How were those peanuts!!!!! #7194377

Totally a TREASURE, Bill!! I absolutely love this! It's right out of James Lee Burke ... even though he writes about Louisiana, not the state of Georgia. I know spots like this remain because I live in an old-fashioned kind of area, still unspoiled by development and homogeny; they really ARE treasures though, and it's my hope they will be preserved. Life is so much shallower, when everything is Starbucks or McDonalds, don't you think?? You should do a series!! Me too, maybe -- ? Hmmm

Thanks for your very kind welcome back, as well! I guess I was away in the Tardis for a bit! heh heh #7214091
