When money is tight, you have to find fun and beauty in either free or inexpensive things. In addition to getting a 100% free quart of paint for my front door (thank you, Ace!), we took the cameras out to find some pictures.
I had been wanting to take some pictures of a dilapidated, abandoned hotel on the outskirts of town. For some reason, I find beauty in the broken and decrepit, in the creepier things we see every day. This might fuel my love of “dead” shopping malls, too. These old, unwanted buildings have stories behind them, a history, and when you can’t find them out, they invite you to create your own because they spark your imagination. Wonderful, isn’t it?
We also ventured about ten miles away to take some pictures of Frostburg, MD, quintessential small town America. I couldn’t have asked for more out of the beautiful sunlight.
