Le Blog 2 / 10: Main Street

Postby Gary » 19 Feb 2011, 19:20

Welcome to a slice of small town Americana at the turn of the 20th Century that probably never really existed.

- But perhaps we all like to think that it did..

- and want to live there now..

- as long as it comes complete with modern day comforts.. :)

Main Street USA is a dazzling small town of imagineering lit up by numerous gas lamps and adorned on either side of its wide road by lavish shops, ornate balustrades and beautiful neapolitan ice cream coloured architecture.

Every now and again the sound of a claxon from a vintage bus carrying visitors to another place pierced the air warning others with their cameras to basically get the heck out of the way.

In the real world people would show their contempt for someone honking their horn.

But not in the place where I was standing on that chilly sunday afternoon.

I was standing on Mainstreet USA - Near Paris.

And it was a very happy place to be. :)
Please pass through the turnstiles if you are riding again.
