Today in Newnan...

Today I had a photo assignment in town. So as I wandered around taking the pictures I was brought on to provide, I also snapped random shots that caught my eye. Newnan is known as "The city of homes" and there are some lovely places around here. Houses that date back to pre-civil war litter the old streets, along with quaint little places that have been fixed up and sold for way more than they are worth, now housing transplants and the like around the city. The stately old manor homes are very beautiful. But as you walk around town or drive through, there are often little patches that you just never see... So I looked at the town from a slightly different angle...




































Of course being near the trains I had to put a quarter and nickel on the track to give to Patrick and James... I remember doing this with my dad when I was little... I still get a kick out of it..

We used to put coins on the tracks at Stone Mountain when we were younger.

lol I think they still do that, John. Of course when I was young, the only thing at Stone Mtn WAS Stone Mountain...There wasn't much else there.

...and when it's appropriate I still put coins on the track.

Have always thought that most cities are more interesting from the alley/train tracks point of view.. I always imagine the people that were there before.. How the store owners worked, lived and raised their families in the same building.. Or the different types of people who traveled those rails.. Much more interesting than who attended what tea in 1927..
