  1. I just posted a poem inspired by espressos, and I came here to see ‘Black Coffee’. Looks like we’re on the same wavelength! Really enjoying how dramatic and edgy the black and white looks – completely transforms the ‘mundane’, like all good art.

  2. The first photo looks like haunted Nola or the old west. Love it.

  3. I couldn’t find any benches either in the archives or locally that I thought would make good shots. Ehhh… But yours are awesome! Love the old wooden benches – looks like an old school or church?

  5. I thought that 1st one looked like the Biltmore. It’s too bad the state took over the grounds. It’s a zoo to get in there now.

    • I haven’t been in years. We used to go to see the Christmas display when I was a kid. But it’s been 15 years since we’ve been now.

      • You can’t just drive through anymore. That vista of the winding road to the mansion….now you have to park and take the tour bus.
        The first time I went was in 85, and we parked right out front in the circle drive. I was so enamored with the views, and the history. The Pisgah mountains are just amazing from the big second story verandah.
