I was a speaker on the second day of a two-day conference, which required an overnight stay in this town about 100 miles from home. In the afternoon, I’d discovered a really nice coffee shop – Palace Coffee, for those of you keeping score at home. When I left the coffee shop – in time to make it to the conference’s evening activities – I noticed this little place and thought, “I need to come back here later.”
So I did.
On this afternoon, I had three passengers in my car. Two of them I had just met. And one of those had just asked me what sorts of things I liked to photograph. I said, “That. Right there. The old building. Oh! And that sign! The old building AND the sign!!”
Maybe I just imagined that I caught them exchanging worried glances at each other.
At any rate, I didn’t stop. But I did come back later….
