Day 66 - Industry Lane

Hedgeapple on a
picnic table
It's not been a great day for me.  I locked myself out of the house and I left my Kindle in a restaurant, never to be seen by me again.  Fortunately, I was able to solve both problems -- a neighbor had a key and I bought a new Kindle -- but I was not in the mood to reward myself for bad behavior with a walk in a beautiful or scenic or historic or quaint location, so I challenged myself to find interesting things to photograph in a very commercial section of town.

Industry Lane is where my framer is located.  I picked up some mats there, then walked from one end of the road to the other. It is in an area where warehouse type buildings are mixed with two story office complexes.  This is the area of town, I discovered, where auto body shops, exterminators, oxygen suppliers, tire companies, and storage facilities are.  There were lots of empty spaces for lease, as well.

How often do you find pine

It was gray and cold, but my walk did me good, and I even found a few interesting things to photograph.  People ask me how I can find so many things to take pictures of, and I tell them that you just have to look.  Look up, down, ahead, behind, under, and on top.  I often kid them by saying that I could find things to take pictures of in an empty parking lot.  One of these days, I will have to test that theory.
