    This city is pathetic, I havent gotten started on all the rundown/abandoned and/or condemned buildings here, So this set is going to grow.

    What it boils down to is simple, The casino is at the other end of town, Who wants to have a business over here at the far end of town :(

    cheap property, buy it all up and then put a competing casino at this end right next to your new studio!

    Lol, the building in the second pic actually has a sign on it stating "redused price" I have a shot of it but I did not scan it. unfortunately I am not permitted to own a casino here, This be reservation land, only the natives have that luxory.

    Besides I'd build a custom auto shop before a casino any who.

    I apologize for the delay but these where held up almost two weeks by the processing company and/or delivery company they use.

    Two of the many abandoned gas stations here in the city. The sheer number of gas stations is absolutely ridiculous, it is no surprise that many have failed to make enough to survive much less turn a profit. I have got to get out and get a few more shots of most of these but for right now, I am working on getting one or two basic glimpses of all of them to start with.

    I dunno if that sign still holds it's original meaning but I guess they get put up if there is a blind person who may wander out in the road nearby, I dunno

    Where do I live, Salamanca NY, Is everythigng deralict, No there is a bunch or fully functional working structures littered around this hole, but there is not much in the way of business. Business owners are afraid that the natives will cease their business once they begin to turn a profit so they stay away from rezervation land and stick to Olean (Oh-lee-ann), Buffalo and Jamestown.

    I know that town. I have an old friend that I believe may have moved back up there. Haven't talked to her in years.

    I go up that way every now and then. I like to take some shots, and do a
    little fishing. I love hitting some of the hole in the wall restaurants in the middle of nowhere. At night, I can't see my hand in front of my face. It's
    that dark!

    Definitaly a different world up there. Nice shots.

    I used to travel up there occasionally to visit her. I always enjoyed the drive, very peaceful & pretty. Even (& especially) in the winter. I always ended up taking the wrong exit coming in though :lol:. took me a few times to finally remember the correct one.

    I took a pretty nice picture (when I didn't know what I was doing & just using a p&s) of the sun rising over the One Stop as I was leaving once. I'll have to see if I can find it & try to get it scanned in.
