Thematic Photographic 35: "Down" v.3.0 - After the Shutdown

"Down the Block"
Bethlehem, PA - November 2005 (Click to embiggen)

Thematic Photographic hosted by Carmi - Button Image by Smarmoofus Hosted by Written Inc.

This week's Thematic Photographic theme is "Down". As in "a collection of vectors aligned with the pull of gravity, or in the absence of gravity, some arbitrary and agreed upon vector".

This is pretty obvious in a way. I'm looking down from the top of one of the main streets in Bethlehem, PA's mill town. In another way, it's not so obvious, because this shot was taken only a few years after Bethlehem Steel shut down for good leaving many in the town in, no doubt, a very "down" state.

Stumble This!

That's a great shot, I want to run down the street. Or possibly drive a nice car down it very fast!

One with a pair of roller blades standing where you took the picture will probably scream out SUICIDE!!

A great take and looking good in B&W.
Hope your weekend has been enjoyable :)
