Store Windows

Store window scenes: usually pleasant moments wherein I rather force myself to slow down and examine detail with more attention than I customarily do.  

Often I have found myself in some small town or city, and something in a block or two of buildings that has survived from another era catches my eye.  But any place large or small presents the opportunity to find instances where a business's  display of color or form seems to call out for a photo.  It's kind of a whimsical pleasure.  In most cases through the main section of pages only minimal text is provided.   

A second section provides a group of images without comment from a co
uple of days spent in the French Quarter of New Orleans, May, 2001.  That concentrated area is  a wonderful mixture of the truly historic and beautiful, and the ultimate in tackiness; it has the most elegant and the basest of things to attract the visitor's attention.
