Our Town... by thewatersphotos

Our Town...

I live in a rural part of our county in the southern USA. We have towns close by, two within 20 miles and a larger one within 30 miles. We enjoy the rural life. It offered us a quiet and peaceful place to raise our family and now is comfortable for us.
We are staying close to home with the continued virus spread.
However, recently I took a morning to visit one of the closer towns and walked its streets (the "downtown" is probably fewer than 10 small city blocks) taking photos of what interested me. Over the next several days, I'd like to share those photos with you, to give you a glimpse into life here.
I've said before that the railroad runs right through the middle of town. This is one of the warning arms in town.
We have railroads around us, too. I'm looking forward to your installments of your town's story.

Even though I live in a very metropolitan area... I'm in a more rural county and downtown Acworth has a rail line running right though its center... so your shot made me think of it. I look forward to seeing more pictures of your home town. We are staying close to home too... it is a smart choice.

That will be lovely to see your local point of interest....I really love the everyday lives of our 365 friends!

Nice capture, it will be interesting to see your part of the world.

Lovely shot of the sign, I can't wait to see your images of life in your closest town.

I look forward to this adventure!

Your area sounds very much like my town - and about the same distance to others. We, too, have a railroad that runs by the town.

Nice lines and blue sky.

@k9photo Thanks!

@kvphoto Thanks, KV! I think I have been to Acworth (does it have a small station and fencing?) and took photos of the train going through town. Our town is smaller with fewer shops.

@thewatersphotos yes... it has a small RR museum and a train station that is ornamental... I don't think the trains stop there. You can see a picture I took of the train station and posted last February: https://365project.org/kvphoto/365/2020-02-22

@kvphoto Here is my train shot in the North Georgia town we visited. Other photos following this one were from the same town.

@thewatersphotos oh... is this shot from North Georgia? You live in Alabama... right?

@kvphoto I do. I discovered the North Georgia town is Cartersville. We were close to there for our family Christmas, 2019.
