On my way home from buying study aids at the bookstore, I passed through a small town not far from my own. This Mexican restaurant caught my eye, and I stopped to take a picture. I couldn't help but think about how we're constantly being told we're coming out of the recession, yet here sits this empty restaurant with the sad sign, still closed because of the recession.
Funny story: I took two pictures of the restaurant before I was approached by a sheriff's deputy. He asked if I was okay, and I told him I was taking photos for a project. I told him I thought the restaurant made an interesting subject. He walked away muttering something about interesting, so I skeedaddled out of there quick as I could.
Okay, so maybe the story wasn't so funny. I still wonder what that lawman thought I was doing.
