Image of the Week

Does anyone really know what time it is?

I love photographing the collections found in antique stores. This one is from Right Stuff in Coudersport, Potter County. Other collections I have spotted are keys, buttons and sassy little salt and pepper sets. Remember those? I am always looking for more collections to photograph, so contact me with any suggestions.

Please bookmark my blog address or become a follower and check back regularly. Blogging for me will be a process, but I will be likely to include journal entries and information about current exhibits, future photography endeavors and life topics which interest me and, I hope, will interest you. I will have a section with links to where I will post recent photos and links to other blogs and destinations. As always, I welcome comments, questions and debate.
