Some Things Never Change

(50 mm, f/1.4, 1 sec, ISO400)
Taken in the dark at 9:30 pm with no flash. I love my lens.

I've mentioned my home town of Mantua Ut before. I remember as a little boy my Dad would give me and my sisters 25 cents every Saturday and we would walk to the one store in Mantua and buy penny candies. The other day while taking my girls fishing in Mantua I was able to do the same thing for them. the shelves still held the same selection of penny candies. Some things never change.

Ahhh, but do they still cost the same? I like the composition and angle of your photo, and the blue sky is beautiful! Great time of day (or evening, I guess).

Great shot. Very nostalgic! About Rattlesnake . . . the snow is gone on Pipeline, but I'm don't think the gate is open at the top yet. We rode Dry Creek on Sunday though and it was only wet in a couple of spots.

You're totally gonna think i'm a fibber, but I swear i've been to this exact store!!!!!!! In high school some girlfriends and I jumped in the car and wanted to drive to Vegas (yeah, wish we would have brought a map.... better yet, wish there TomTom's were invented) but we got SO LOST and found ourselves talkinig to the sweetest man here and getting directions. I bought the homemade fudge there. Oh sweet memories.

by the way, i don't think we ever actually made it to las vegas.

GREAT photo, the angle is perfect and the dark blue sky looks so pretty, awesome!!

I love Mantua, I love small town stores... ESPECIALLY the ones with penny candy! We always went to the Corner Market in Newton, Utah (know where that one is? It's little!) when we lived there to get penny candy. So much fun! I love how you captured it... Great job!
