Old Houses

I started at Rutledge Road where I took photos of an old house that is still there.

I wanted to finish up with the photo walk I started a few days ago. But I did it in reverse starting at Rutledge Road, where I took photos of an old house that is still there. They have built a brand new Retirement Building nearly next to it on a piece of land that once had a factory, and a sludge pool that we called Acid Pond. The pond is now buried, and the land chewed up awaiting more development. Directly across, on the other side of the tracks, you can see Central Plaza. I walked along until I came to Tannery Street, where I took photos of two houses, that now sit empty. I met someone I knew, who told me how upset they are that the land will be used for 155 townhouses. I told this person that I was distraught as well, but resighned. (After all, who would want to make a little park out of it?) When I reached Joymar Drive, a gentleman motioned to me as to ask what I was doing taking photos. I merely blurted out “for my blog”, which thankfully satisfied him. I then strolled around all the car shops and businesses that take up a large area bordered by Thomas Street, Mullet Creek and Joymar Drive. I came across a pile of doors and asked the person standing there if I could take a picture of them. He said for me to knock myself out. So I did. After looking over Malefic Tatoos, I finally reached the car wash, as I had intended. Then I retraced my steps along the tracks. When I reached Tannery Street again, I stopped to take a photo of a very large Willow tree. Afterwards. I went into the drug store at Central Plaza, but then forgot what I wanted to buy. So I took pictures of Frank and Tonys, where I go to have my beard trimmed. I also took a few shots of Hobby Hobby, that has been in the same spot for as long as I can remember. Then I walked past the old Library, then went home.
