The history of shopping

It’s a fact of life that any place that attracts a lot of people must have some kind of town to offer all the important things like t-shirts, souvenirs and candy!   In the case of Rocky Mountain National Park, that town is Estes Park, Colorado.  The downtown area is filled with little shops and restaurants including a few old-timers like this one.

The vintage neon sign is what attracted me to this in the first place.  Interestingly, when you do a search for images of this place, the neon sign isn’t there.  I don’t know if they got this made and installed to look like it is old or if they found the old sign in storage somewhere and put it back up but it is pretty cool.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
