Tuxedo Relic

Yesterday, Al and I went driving around and found ourselves in Tuxedo, NC, which has some great stuff to look at, like Staton’s Grocery. Country stores like this probably will not be around much longer and short of buying them, I can only save them photographically.al-tripcopuntry01202017-69al-tripcopuntry01202017-83al-tripcopuntry01202017-89al-tripcopuntry01202017-88

Why These ?

Colors, shapes and textures sometimes combine in wonderful ways for me and here are a few examples. The corrugated  metal wall has great color, a suggestion of an American flag and interesting texture. The second photograph is a kind of stark image of color and composition, simple but elegant. The third is about color and texture. The lettering provides some shadow formation.
