A little general store was a treasure trove of photographic opportunities. As we had strictly limited the photographers on this trip so that they had plenty of teaching time and space, I was not an ‘official’ shooter. This meant that any shots of the models were ‘grab’ shots ensuring that I didn’t get in the way of anyone else. This actually suited me just fine and the bonus was that I had plenty of time to wander off with my camera and explore other opportunities.
There were old rusting cars abandoned everywhere and tucked away round the back was a music hall that looked like it had come from a stage set on an old spaghetti western.
It looks like quite a few people used this sign for target practice.
Inside the store was just as quirky as outside. And they sold ice creams – just what was needed on a punishingly hot afternoon.

You don’t see the Union Jack flag in the UK unless it’s a special occasion. It’s the complete opposite in the USA. No excuse needed.
