These are some old glass doors on an empty roadside store I passed late last summer. The store wasn't open any longer but the outside had been kept in its original form. The doors reminded me of the many country stores of my youth; especially with the cigarette ads on the glass. I imagine a small bell might have tingled when the doors opened.The patina of the unpainted wood reminds me of the little store of my childhood where my brother and I would return our empty coke bottles for a bag of penny candy and maybe another coke. Sometimes we sat on the porch drinking the coke with peanuts in the bottom of the bottle before walking on back home.
I like looking in through these windows to what looks like old tin on the ceiling. Did you notice the antique light above the door and another through the right window? It definitely looks like one of those places that make you think - if only these walls could talk the stories they would tell.
For my sepia shot I took the original (posted below) and converted it to sepia and as Mary did last week I have used a dry brush filter as well.
