The Old West Near Bessemer, Alabama

I guess this used to be some kind of store sometime ago, but is just an abandoned building now. I like it because it looks like one of those old buildings from the old western movies. If you look close you might be able to tell where I edited out the for sale sign, but I tried to make it not too noticeable. A tree has fallen on the porch since I took this shot so it doesn't look as cool now, but it could be repaired. It's out in the middle of nowhere on one of the windy back roads I like to ride so I can understand why it didn't stay in business, but maybe someone can revive it.

  1. So True. Old places that probably have some great stories to tell just succumb to time and the elements and never get to speak. Maybe getting older adds some emotional understanding to these places. It also helps that we find them on a nice ride when all is quiet and we are the only observers at the moment. ;)
