The Main Street View, part 1

Back in 2006 I took a walk in downtown Jonesboro. I remember it rather distinctly. It was a beautiful April spring day and I spent several hours shooting and walking around. (This was before Harley, so I had plenty of time to spare.) That idea seems pretty normal to me now: take some time to walk around and shoot photos, but this walk was different. This was the first one. This was the first walk after deciding to pursue photography. Yes, there was time in my adult life where photography was not a normal part of my daily life. GASP!

My goal, at that time, was color. I was looking for color. I think I found it in a few places. Other things simply caught my attention and i took a picture of it. I’m sharing these now because another blogger’s photos reminded me of these photos. I took joy in viewing his photos. (You can find his blog here. Make sure and look at his street photography.) I took joy in shooting these photos. I find joy in photography.

These are not the only photos I have of Main Street in Jonesboro, Arkansas. That’s why I called it part 1. I plan to share more. I hope you enjoy viewing these photos as much as I enjoyed taking and seeing them again after several years.
