Friday Favorite..... Black Friday

Please click on the photo for a better image...

This image, taken on a Friday, was created on a day that was dark and stormy. For that reason I had called it "Black Friday". So, what better day to publish a photo called Black Friday than on a day that is called Black Friday.

At the end of the day, some people may even think that this day truly did turn into a Black Friday.

Five days before Thanksgiving, on a chilly and overcast day, this business place is putting in their Christmas decorations. Sure miss the days when Christmas decorations never even came out of the box until "after" Thanksgiving was over. Maybe I am just showing my age.

Anyway, Happy Holidays to all of "You"...

Looking For A Better Location

This is but one of many murals that are located on numerous walls of buildings in downtown Cumberland, MD. This mural is located on a wall at the entrance to an alley situated between a beauty parlor and a dance studio. The alley ends just a few yards away at the back entrance to a restaurant...

South Cumberland Savings Bank

Please click on the photo for a better image...

A view of the South Cumberland Savings Bank building, built in 1904, from an area that was not available at the time of its construction.

Now, this is what one sees as they exit the railroad underpass that was not here when this bank was built. At that time, the then dirt road ran past the bank over the railroad tracks. Eventually, because of increased vehicle traffic in the area, and the making of hard surfaced roads, an underpass was built beneath the tracks and soon one did not have to worry about that trains as they traveled past the bank.

Now the building is being used as an automotive repair shop ( I think that they are still in business ) and the rear portion of the building is gone; only the front and sides remain as they were built. The bank building is still a visually prominent landmark known by most residents of the area.

Friday Favorite..... Umbrella Man

He slips out the door with plans under his coat. He knows not who his contact will be. Only the fact that he has an umbrella, with which to makes his presence known, will he be approached by the one who needs the information that he carries. He is known only by the name of Umbrella Man...

Dark and empty just as the night, it waits and watches and wonders who will carry the light, and drive away the darkness within, and fill its empty soul.

A Rainy Fall Day In The Neighborhood

Please click on the photo for a better image...

There are not many Fall colors left for photographing but this scene from my neighborhood caught my interest one rainy morning a few days ago. The soft overcast sky with a chilly light rain coming down seemed to me to show what Fall is really like. It is the change from a sunny Summer to a cold Winter and Fall is the gate through which the seasons change.

The warm colors of Summer with the coming stark cold of Winter is seen in one moment on a Fall morning one rainy day in the neighborhood.
