Old General Store And Wisteria

The itsy, bitsy town of Tyaskin, Maryland .... if you blink your eyes while driving through, you'll miss it.  Imagine our delight when we saw this old abandoned general store building, overflowing with wisteria.  At one time, we understand this was a gathering place in the town ... store, gossip, fellowship, etc.  Now there are plans to tear it down.

For those who might be tempted to enter, a homemade cardboard sign on the door reads:  KEEP OUT, EXTREME DANGER, NO TRESPESSING.    You think?

And sitting at the end of the sidewalk at the Tyaskin Post Office, we saw this rare sight .... a pay phone!

Once again you've managed to capture a feeling in your images. I love how your photography creates such an emotional impact. The b/w of the pay phone is exceptional what a find. The flowers on the side of the building the way you cropped and enhanced that, fantastic.

I didn't remember that there was anything in Tyasking or Bivalve to see. Years ago I went with another nurse to do a supervisory visit in Bivalve -- down a side road. Then it turned to a dirt road -- it was almost scary.
I don't remember when I last saw a pay phone.
I'm trying to help Carl with the kids while Jennifer finishes up her B.A. course work -- grad. cermemony is May 21. I hope we can have a fun day soon -- I would take a day during the week except that I have taken 5 days so far to go with David to different MD appts.
