Historic Downtown Norcross (The Other Side)

One of my local favorite small town vignettes is Historic Downtown Norcross.  It is a very small train depot town from years past, replete with a handful of nice shops and eateries.  It has continued to improve with age over the past 20 years, thoughtfully blending nearby historic residential neighborhoods with new homes.  Many of the neighborhoods are a short walk from downtown and a nearby park, all reminiscent of the 40’s.  Lots of folks stroll the sidewalks with their family or significant other, and the town hosts  annual events like an antique British car show to arts festivals.  You get the picture … warm, friendly, inviting, and easily accessible.

Over the years I’ve done several outdoor portrait sessions along the storefronts, railroad tracks, and neighborhood sidewalks.  Also, a favorite photo spot has been the alley behind the main set of shops.

This weekend I was on a casual motorcycle ride and decided to swing through town, not having been there in months.  I  hoped there might be a Memorial Day parade or event in the works, but this was not the case.  Things were “dead” on my early morning pass through.  So plan B – zip through the alley and see if there’s anything new and interesting to photograph.  Much to my surprise, the old sleepy back alley had seen a facelift!  The color and artistic flare have made it come alive.
