This business/small strip center's exterior was recently remodeled, but still no new tennants. This is part of an old, small neighborhood grocery store before there were gas stations/convenience stores on every corner. It is a small miracle that the main business has survived (it was thriving when I was a kid) for nearly nearly 50 years (not same owner or store name - but still there).
Although by far not one of my better photos, I think it is appropriate for the prompt. It was also one of those stand in the parking lot in front of people to take it image (although I cheated & sat in my car - reason why it is taken from angle - too chicken to get out -- I'm working on being more comfortable with that - think I could do better in a different town where no one knows me).
Picture details: 50mm lens, fused to show more of the grunge on the windows, a little tonal adjustment and very minimal cropping
