Shop Window

The shop was closed when I went by, which is a shame: that assortment of things in the window was very interesting.

Sears (what’s left)

Our Sears store closed for good the other day. In the days leading up to the closing, I went three or four times to photograph what a dying store looks like. The first time, the Patient Spouse went along with instructions to “provide cover” while my camera and I prowled around. As it turns out, employees with only four or five days left on their job don’t care one bit about photographers and I was able to document the interior without anyone acting like they noticed.

But this – this sort of sums up the whole situation.

Museum in progress

I first visited this little ghost-town museum in November 2017; I don’t think one thing had changed between then and my return visit a year later. Evidently ghosts are pretty slow at building finish-out.

Stop at Cow Dog

The stop sign’s shadow adds a subliminal message, maybe, to the front of the food truck.

On a side note, I did not eat there, but only because it was closed.
