The Ghosts of Commerce
The Ghosts of Commerce

“The Ghosts of Commerce”
Photo of the Week #17, selected in September, 2019

I have always been fascinated by abandoned buildings, especially those that were storefronts, gas stations or other means of commerce. The photo of this rural drive-in store store was taken in Central Kansas and I have often wondered what it was like when it was first built and used. At first I thought it was a gas station, but there were no visible signs that gas pumps once stood there. Its sign has an odd shape on top, like perhaps someone wearing a chef’s hat, so I’ve been thinking it was a roadside bakery. It’s fun to guess!

This photo was also used for the cover of my fourth book of poetry, “Aspects Long Forgotten,” and also inspired the title piece of the book.
