A nice Marquette County blend of house reds.

Last post was approaching The Rustaliscious Resale and Architectural Oddities Shop from the left and now this building is just to the RIGHT of that shop.  I don’t remember the real street name, but I think it should be Wabi Sabi Way.

In three days of questing and snooping and perhaps a certain degree of trespassing (shhhhh!) Karen and I were questioned only once as to what we were doing and that was behind this building. A friendly guy in his 20’s with the air of a co-conspirator said “Taking pictures for the judge?”

I smiled. Karen winked. We kept shooting.

On the backside of Main street, downtown Negaunee. Same block as the Wabi Sabi Wonderland Architectural Salvage Shop and Rust Emporium.

One more look behind the resale shop and then out to the street.

In Negaunee.

I should have been patient and set the scene for these pieces with some street and building shots, but I started to play with a few close-ups and the next thing I knew…

So, I’ll show you the street next time. This was the rear yard of a resale shop connected with the community theatre. Had I worked for days, I couldn’t have set up finer groupings.  Treasures. Everywhere you looked: treasures.

What’s this?

If I remember correctly, part of an old street lamp.

Lastly, a close-up of the guys from the larger picture above. I swear they are in a pub and singing. Singing what, you ask? 

One, two and three Jolly Coachmen, sat in an English Tavern. And they decided, and they decided, and they decided…to have another flagon!”
