Dead K Mart #4: Flagpole

Here’s the last of the dead K Mart photos, with the floodlight pointed toward nothing.

Dead K Mart #3: Loading Dock

This dead K Mart is on a lot that’s over 36 acres, which is a lot of empty space right in town.

But at least there’s an old mattress out by the loading docks.

Dead K Mart #2: Garden Center

I looked through all the windows that weren’t covered with brown paper. This was the garden center; everything’s gone except the row of advertising banners high on the wall.

According to the real estate listing for the property, the building is 178,158 square feet. It’s all empty now, of course. But way in the back, some lights have been left on – are we supposed to think someone’s home?

Dead K Mart #1: Parking Lot

This is the first in a four-part series of images of the out-of-business K Mart here in Lubbock.

The store closed late last year, one of 64 stores that were closed nationwide. This one does still have a dumpster and a mailbox, though the reasons for them are unclear. Wait! I just realized that I didn’t look inside the dumpster…it’s possible that I missed something important. But probably not.

Like looking through glass

I think I owe you an apology; the other day I posted a link to a song that wasn’t even by Bruce Cockburn. That must have been very confusing, as it went against everything that you expect from us here at One Day | One Image, musically.

So here’s Bruce.

And that funny-looking instrument he’s playing? It’s a charango.
