What to do when the boss (wife) is at work and well you need to be quiet and by work I mean working from home. I am certin that I will show you more around town as the year progresses but for now Humboldt,Tn if you plug it into a search engine One of the first things you will see is Strawberry Festival. In time I will show you some of the strawberries around town but they were not the focus of today. I decided to take a left and see what I could see.

Industrial is not quite an explaination but then again Agriculture is not right either. Industrial Ag that is what comes to mind. This is such a cool little slice of town so I will be back.

I went out with inspiration from Peter.be.photography The graphical nature of his work is beautiful to me. Simple graphical That is what I was searching for. Blue sky so contrasty light. I wanted shadows without blowing out the sky. That I achieved. This was a wall of I think Swamp Coolers judging from the way it looked to me the cool thing is they were spaced out rather nicely so I wanted to play with that just a bit.

On my way back to the house I caught a Red and yellow sigh on the side of a building so well I thought what the hell I need to go a block up anyway so I wandered closer to see what it was.

A sign for a cola that I have never seen before and it looks like it was hidden by a wall of what was a building at one point.

Great tribute to Peter's blog. Your last one reminds some amazing pictures from the 50's.

I honestly think that is the era it is from. Most likely it is in good condition due to a wall covering it for ages.
