50/365-Antique Liberty

I needed to get out of the house so I headed to an antique store. I guess I figured there would be something I could photograph. It was different than I thought it would be. I expected a dark, musty smelling, dirty junk house. Boy, was I wrong! This place was well lit, beautifully designed and organized, and the owners were kind enough to let me shoot. It smelled good too.

Anyway, I chose this picture for Presidents Day. I like the clock in the background. Sometimes I wonder how far off we are from what famous historical figures expected and hoped for. Times change and each generation interprets the past a little differently. So, how far off the intended mark are we?


  1. Beautiful. Great significance of the clock...liberty enduring time. Great idea to go to an antique store, I might try that sometime.

  2. Cool idea to go shoot in an antique shop! I bet there were lots of really neat things to shoot in there! I am always afraid that people will complain if I get my camera out in stores and stuff, so way to go!
    I can't wait to see you in the morning and have some fun shooting orchids with ya :)

  3. P - I might name the photo "Liberty enduring time" on flickr.

    M - I'm excited to go out shooting with you too.

    Both- When I went in the store I told the owner about the project and asked if I could shoot in the store. That way I could avoid any confrontation.
