Ron - Photograph From Along the National Road

This is one of my favorite photographs that I made as a part of Truth From Perceptions.

The door of the business has handwritten hours for every day of the week. No fancy sign here, not even one telling us what the business is. Obviously the locals know.

 The windows of the building have been bricked in at different times. The contrast of the air conditioner bringing in fresh air and the exhaust fan that jettisons the stale air from a seemingly closed off space adds to the mystery of the business.

 This business, in my mind, is a perfect metaphor for the financial and economic crisis that the small towns and their people are facing.
