a winter’s day

winchester fog

Driving through the take out lane, I saw the fog was lifting. earlier, not even an hour or so, I could see only two car lengths  in front of me

I was heading back towards the city now,  with each passing mile, the sky got brighter

building across from po

bright enough, that I thought to stop to take a picture.  Usually I am driving by this site during the work day, and the road is just too busy.  I may have mentioned that I have been wanting to get a picture before the whole building disappears.  It has happened before, I am driving  along a road I travel many times a week when suddenly I realize that a building has disappeared.

The world around me is in constant flux.  For some reason, the demolition, began at a time that for whatever reason, I missed it.  I happened to go to the post office one day (it is across from this location) and when I drove out, it was a “WOW when did that happen???”  That was in the fall, and here it is February of the following year, and there it still stands.

building across from post office

I did see an opening in the fence.  However, my common sense, held me in check.  No hard hat, and not wearing my steel toed footwear.  Maybe I’ll get a chance another day. LOL if I were to find rust I would be in 7th heaven.

This adventure took place last week, today, I am looking forward to what’s ahead.

PL Calendar 18    Look Forward to What’s Ahead.

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.

What a good teaching to start a new week.  Hope everyone is enjoying a long week-end, and is revving up for a stunning brand new week.

I wish, =^_^= but I was the one to make a new trail

down an unused road, that led me to another time

P1000643

a family home, once filled with laughter

now stands silent, waiting

this was not the structure tho’ that had caught my attention

rather I was drawn to a building that called out

to my searching ” eyes”

P1000641

“look, look, see my charm”, I got a picture in full sunlight

but this one with the little building half in the shade

I found had more to say

I sensed this is where the children played

on rainy days, on sunny days

this little structure captured and ignited

their imagination in every way

this pretty face

It was an amazing day !!!

Thursday Doors 2.2.17

1-30-17-leitrum-at-bank

I’ve always enjoyed driving by this building, on this particular day, I was drawn to it, the sky behind, the sprinkle of snow…. it was eye-catching.  It has a practical use I’m sure, never-the-less it was “king for the day” in my day of photo possibilities.

A moment in time capture in a lens, without the surrounding buildings, or traffic on the roads, it could be on a desolate patch of land, in an abandoned airport..  Loved it.. Hope you find it stirs your imaginations too.

Happy Thursday everyone… PL Precept # 2  To Live is to Express One’s Self

Thursday doors, 11.3.16

Had to get a closer look.  Around the block we drove, so I could really see t his entrance way to a church we saw along the way

p1000521Nice colours used in the stained glass…I like the simplicity of it.

This entrance was hidden, but I was determined to get  a closer look.  the building appealed to me, we are trying to get more information on it.  Hwy 3, NY State going towards Watertown.  It is not always easy getting the real estate people to call us back…

p1000533

Some of you are really good at search and find, this is the real estate agent of note.. there was another sign, but it was long over grown with vegetation.

p1000530

OK so it isn’t everyone’s idea of “turn-key”   and it doesn’t have the greatest “curb appeal”  To each his/her own, right.

p1000529

I see a ton of possibility, AND it sets my mind to “dreaming” of what was, and what could be…

p1000528

Never give up on your dreams.  always look for the “something” that appeals to you.  It isn’t about what others may want, it is what “speaks to you”

ps. I was feeling rather sluggish with the weather today, happy, but draggin.. then I started to work on this blog, sharing with you,  I was pulling out my pictures of this latest “find” of mine.  I couldn’t help it, my heart took wings, a smile as broad as my face plastered itself across my “pus”  this building makes me smile, what can I say, the old weathered wood, the placement of the windows on the second story, watching out on the busy hwy.

The building was at an intersection, the sign was really too faded to read, but we thought we saw the word mini.. could have been a convenience store.  Certainly there was ample parking.  Yeah life is good. =^_^=

Blessings of the day to everyone… May you find peace and happiness, and your smile shine like a beacon of light for all who meet up with you today.

yes it is still Wednesday -but a Thursday door is in this post!

p1000413

We can only wonder at the creative mind that pulled this all together.  what a hoot it must have been to drive up and meet the people here, possibly someone somewhere will know more about this location, and contact me.  Meanwhile…. I enjoy the little surprises as i revisit the pictures.

Both my husband and our friend Syb, were reminded of Stephen King’s writing when they saw the pictures. I personally have not read a lot of Stephen King, what do you think?

p1000392

I know Norm, I know, tomorrow is Thursday, but as you can see, this door from the building is very standard issue. the one that was super cool was the one at the front, where they drove cars in and out from.

Dorinda, Elusive, does this place inspire a storyline?  Anyone from Maine that knows anything about this place.. I’d love to hear from you.

Always be open to new discoveries, and when you find a piece of history that speaks to you…. enjoy it!
