I've photographed the old post office at Cedar Falls, North Carolina many times over the years. Local folks have worked on restoring the building that was once the office for the Cedar Falls Manufacturing Company since the last time I shot it.
Daisies bloom in front of the building on a Saturday morning.
I look back through my earlier work and occasionally find something that stands the test of time. In 1976 during my Tri-X film days, I photograhed my friend Emmitt in front of his abode near Chapel Hill, North Carolina. That's "Geronimo"s Cadillac" on the calendar and that's the song he's singing.
Still life from the Alston House near Sanford, North Carolina. Also known as the House in the Horseshoe, because it sits in a horseshoe bend of Deep River, the house was the scene of a Revolutionary War skirmish between patriots under Col. Phillip Alston and Tory troops under David Fanning in July 1781. The house still has bullet holes on the front porch from the battle.
Neighbor Richard Whitaker in his tomato hot house in Grays Chapel, North Carolina on a warm afternoon this week. Richard and his family raise tomatoes, strawberries and other produce and run an extensive garden center at two locations in Randolph County.

Saturday was a cold and rainy day, but the cyclists were out in Asheboro for the inaugural Asheboro Criterium. Riders in several amateur and professional classes raced on a closed .6 mile street course in downtown. The events were a combination of timed rides plus sprint finishes. Great turnout of riders, spectators were a little scarce. They missed an interesting event.
Located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Ocracoke is an isolated yet extraordinary destination. You have to try hard just to get there (accessible by ferry only), but it is worth the effort. Haven't been in a while. I really miss it. From my film archives.
Odell Routh had his 56 Cadillac Fleetwood out on Saturday. It was owned originally by his wife's aunt and uncle Jo and Ed Thompson, who bought it new. I remember the Thompsons driving it to church when I was a young boy.
A stop by Liberty Farm and Garden on an April Saturday morning to pick up a bag of chicken feed found Melvin Nunn's crew starting to move seed, fertilizer and other spring garden products. It's that time of year again.
