I thought this was a very interesting sign for this business. It's in Carrboro, the next town over from Chapel Hill. Next town over makes it sound a bit far - it's really just a crossing of the street:). Check out the clouds in the background as well. That was a fortunate accidental capture:).

This is the center of downtown Chapel Hill. When I was doing Voter Registration, I had to be at the office at 6 one morning and figured I'd capture this rare time. It's hard to imagine Franklin Street with no people on it, though I was surprised to see the number of cars I did - I never thought of Chapel Hill as an early morning town...

Glad to be back:).
This picture is of a statue about 5 mins from my home that sits in front of a firestation. I've wandered if it's symbolic of the work the firemen and women do.

You may be wondering why I'm posting so many of these pictures. It's because I haven't been out to shoot in a few days. I'm working for an organization called GVO, and the campaign we're now on is Voter Persuasion. I'll be in Colorado for the next 3 weeks! I'll post a link to those pictures, which I'll post on photoblog.com/missleah :). Soon as I'm back in Chapel Hill though, I'll get to snapping:).

I was canvassing today around Duke University in Durham and saw this very cool mural create in support of Senator Obama and more importantly, getting people to vote. I had some other cool pictures from today but this one was the most symbolic. In light of the debate today, I thought it was timely:).

I've been canvassing for Moveon.org and it's been a very fulfilling experience. One of the many cool things is getting to go to neighborhoods I've never been to. This beautiful mural is near Lakewood and Roxboro Street in Durham not too far from North Carolina Central University, a Historically Black (College or) University (HBCU). There is writing all along the bottom of it stating that a bunch of organizations collaborated to create the mural. There were church groups, youth groups, and local schools to name a few. I love projects like this!

This picture, taken through a car window is of a local pool hall in Chapel Hill. Apparently this place has a lot of history. Notice the 4 people in the picture - more importantly, notice the light blue and white? Tonite there was a UNC football game. Tailgaters and happy fans everywhere. I know-next time, I'll catch a picture of more of that;-)...

I went to watch the debates at Southern Trails in Carrboro. There was a great crowd gathered and I captured a few shots. This picture is however of the cool decor on the walls of Southern Trails. It's an old rail car turned restaurant. I thought this picture brought the old and the new together nicely.
The rest of the pictures I shot you can find here if you like:) :
