About 4 years ago, I was first given entrance to one of the defunct textile mills in my hometown, by a man name Ronnie Stonica, who has a long history with the place. (Some of you may remember him from another post) Over the years, the mill became a place of exploration and solace for me as I learned more about myself and my camera. Along the way, Ronnie and I became friends.
Just over a year ago and shortly before I left Georgia to make my big move to the Pacific Northwest, I went to visit the mill and have lunch with Ronnie. Afterward, he took me to the elementary school he went to as a child. It has since been converted into an office and storage facility for a small carpet manufacturer, but the upper levels still carry evidence of the building’s scholastic history.
It was neat to watch Ronnie revisit a bit from his past and it meant a lot that he thought to share it with me.
More from Friday’s trip to Homegrown Co-Op.
It was a gray 4th of July here on the Point, but I had my camera when manandhisworld and I biked over to pick up our basket of veggies from our local (and inspiring), Homegrown Co-Op.
I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos of some of the wonderful things going on over there and I hope to return soon for more when the skies are blue.
