Native Threads

I love little shops like this! This is another cool spot on 9th Street.

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 :). Soon as I'm back in Chapel Hill though, I'll get to snapping:).

Silver Surfer!

This I found on that same street from yesterday in Durham. This is a great little comic book store and of course, I couldn't pass up the Silver Surfer! I'm sure you can't find him in too many other places ;-).

Duke University Students Supporting Voting!

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:).

Beautiful Mural in Durham

I've been canvassing for 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!

Car Crash

Well this picture is a little different. It is something that is unique to Chapel Hill, as it's part of the back of the car I was in after we were hit from behind. Everyone's ok save for backaches and headaches. I filled the time waiting for the tow trucks taking pictures:-).

Bub O'Malley's

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;-)...

Southern Trials in Carrboro

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:) :

The Busiest street in Raleigh

Hillsborough Street in Raleigh can actually look like a major road in a big city at times. This shot would totally convince you - if this is all you saw;-).
