It’s been a quiet week but strolling around Gainesville provides a lot of photo ops, so this week features the strange and wonderful city that is my recently adopted home.
Gainesville has a ton of trees, of all sizes and shapes, and when the sun is out, it pays to look up at the treetops.
The local utility has a plant in town and this week I finally went down there to take some shots. It has great potential for future photo sessions.
Another day, I stumbled across Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church, the home of the oldest black congregation in Gainesville. This is the third church on the site, completed in 1906.
There are a lot of old houses around town, and this one caught my eye.
And then there was this, outside — appropriately enough — a funeral home. Right on Main Street, in the center of town. Yep, I told you Gainesville was different…
Who knows what I’ll see in the next week?!
There’s still a carefree atmosphere of diversity and freedom and just a really homey and calm vibe to the town.
