Pretty City, 1 // Erick, OK

humidity made the air feel thick as we piled out of the van; the heat soaked our foreheads with sweat, and the combination of heat and humidity turned normally straight hair into damp ringlets. it was an unexpected stop on our way to Ohio, and not one i was totally in favor with. the town was small; quiet, and quaint with people walking down the middle of the road, and a few young girls drawing with chalk on the sidewalk. walking by, i assumed by their excited conversation that they were drawing pictures for a friend who was sick.

wooden store fronts reminded me of the old west, and the large, glass windows that were smudged with paint contained old knick knacks; old lamps with metal lamp stands painted gold, and rusty time hanging from the dilapidated ceiling. abandoned stores, they appeared to be, and they were absolutely stacked with piles of old treasures. (boy, would i love to get in there.) we crossed the street to find the antique looking "city meat market" building absolutely full of old signs, and advertisements. an impromptu photo shoot and a visit to the Roger Miller Museum concluded our visit. it was an adventure after all.  // a short stop on our way to Ohio. ;)

  6. you're such a talented photographer - and i love the looking for beauty concept. i'm thinking about a similar post - something like 'under the looking glass' about the difference between what we see and how we interpret it :)

    great work:)
