Not Responsible

Sometimes if I feel like taking photos but don’t quite know where to go, I’ll head to the nearby town of Littlefield, where I can almost always find enough subjects to fill up my time.

On my most recent visit, I looked through the windows of the out-of-business dry cleaners and was nicely rewarded with an assortment of junk. And some shirts, way back in the back, that I guess will never be reunited with their owner(s).

What the Chamber of Commerce didn’t want you to see

I have a crush on downtown Littlefield: I will just go ahead and admit that right now. It’s got lots of empty buildings for me to photograph and I never get tired of looking at them.

But for all the times I’ve been there, I only just now noticed that from a certain angle you can see right through a pair of glassless windows and get a nice view of the Chamber of Commerce. It sort of sums up the whole town.

Outside of Out Field

I guess I never had this particular view of a baseball field before…

Hidden Entry

I always thought this place had been the town’s hospital, but I am relying solely on my memory for this “fact.” But even it was something else, it still has an ivy-encrusted front door that turned out to be remarkably difficult to photograph.

Inexplicable Seating

I am not sure why it once seemed like a good idea to place concrete benches along the town’s main drag. Maybe in simpler times, breathing the exhaust of passing cars and staring at the pavement was a legit thing to do if you had a bit of spare time?
