On The Road Again

Driving home from dropping our oldest at college after an extended winter break, I spied with my little eye an abandoned gas station. I mentioned to my spouse that I was trying to think of places to go to take some photographs. I decided that the station would be a great first stop. I didn't photograph for sport very much in 2020. We've all had differing responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some people were inspired to renovate their entire houses. Others composed music or wrote books. I actually froze creatively. But with the flip of the calendar, and knowing that I have renovations of my home office scheduled, I knew it would be important for me to make a concerted effort this year to get out and see the world through the lens.

I didn't go far, the pandemic isn't over. The day I decided to go, it was sunny and warm-ish for January in Michigan. I zipped around Parma, starting at the abandoned gas station and then going downtown. I discovered the Parma Feed & Grain store and it spoke to my love of old buildings. There is something truly beautiful about the building and the crumb covered equipment. Have you noticed the gargoyle before? I love the images I was able to snap and I know that the fresh air and sunlight was as good for the soul as the creative process.
