Thumb Great Story, great photos

Hey iDave, I've been lurking here for ages without posting or generally being active. Your story has inspired me. You are a true wordsmith and your pics speak a thousand words too!

Cheers

More soon. But for now, the fire is blazing, and tunes are cranking...

...and your wife is missing you just a bit, but happy you are no longer remembering those worries. Looks like Loveshack is missing me.

Dave,

It occurs to me that most of us are blessed with the ability to see. Some are blessed with the ability to see, and behold the beauty of creation. Some are particularly blessed with not only the ability to see and behold beauty, but also to capture it, interpret it, and share it with others.

You're the latter.

For 25 years, I've remembered my time in Waynesboro with disdain. All I could see was the warehouse district in which I was confined, and the longing I felt for my beloved fiance. Thanks for challenging & changing my image of this obviously beautiful town.

I appreciate you Dave.

- Jimmy

Nice to see homes that have character...

You ussually find those homes in the heart of an old city, at least in California. Mostly "cookie cutter" homes. Boring. Same as cars of yester-year.
Thanks for taking us along Dave,

Brien

I rode past that pavillion a dozen times when I was there, but I never stopped. Should have.

Dave you are so right about not seeing things before our eyes. I live in a small town (not my home town or area) in the UK that has over a thousand years of history but the average person would never noticed it. You are right, you have to be an "outsider" to see the real picture. The houses, Churches, Castles, roads, the place names, words local people speak, all have a historical context which most people only have a tiny inkling of as they go about absorbed in their daily lives. I host people via couchsufring and most foreign visitors are amazed at the historical significances and origins of the most mundane things that we take for granted in this country.
Fantastic to read and see your vision of "small town America".


Jim

I was reminded of this scene from Smoke while reading your report today:

Enjoying the ride/read

This thread reminds me of our favorite town - Lexington, VA. You've given us more incentive to visit Waynesboro this year - another reason NOT to take the interstates....

Wow! Kristi! Thanks for sharing that scene. I have to find that movie now to watch the whole thing. Like the character played by William Hurt, not many people really get the idea photographed by Harvey Keitel--the same scene every morning at 8 a.m., day after day after day. That is documentary photography in one of its purest forms.

I can't quite make out what kind of film camera that is, but it sure reminds me of my first Canon, an FTb that I purchased in Vietnam in 1971. I still have that camera. It still works. "I've owned that little sucker a long time."
