Mourning in this Small Town

As I was walking around this small town, trying to decide where to set up my easel, I realized that every business but one was shut down or boarded up. The gas station was out of business, even the one traffic light didn't work. It was a town that died. During the 2 hours I was there, I saw one man ride by on his bicycle. And yet every local politician has put posters on the utility poles.

You have captured that loneliness, despite the sunshine. The sun shines even on forgotten places!
