The first one, a "Gun & Pawn" shop in Birmingham, AL because it's something typical you see almost everywhere and the second from a minor highway in Georgia (IIRC, it was the 166 towards Atlanta) because it's such a great shot in terms of composition. Note that this is not cropped and was shot from the moving car while driving, with my compact (as was the other).

and it's an hour later again. Where does the time change?
If I had known beforehand that this motel is exactly underneath the flightpath of starting planes, I would have chosen a different one. So I'm stuck here again. Might go out and find some earplugs later when I try to find some dinner. Still, it was a good decision for the first night as I hadn't wanted to drive far but today I could have stayed somewhere further out as I don't have to return the car before 3. Bah, should have thought of that but I thought I'd have a nice long night without driving afterwards. Oh well, should be fine.
Am going to watch Planet Terror later which I bought on DVD.

This morning, after saying goodbye to [livejournal.com profile] martinhesselius and [livejournal.com profile] aeromancer13, I had breakfast at Bogue's Restaurant: Biscuits in white pepper gravy, scrambled eggs and sausage patties, greasy spoon-tastic for a fiver (incl. coffe and OJ).
After some cruising around, I stopped over at Sloss Furnaces, which is now a historic landmark. A wonderful classic industrial site, blast furnaces and all the paraphernalia. It would make a fantastic setting for a photo shoot...
Afterwards, I drove eastwards, mostly on Highway 78 and avoiding the I-20, taking it nice and slowly until I arrived at Atlanta, just gone 4 (or rather, 5).
While it was still grey and miserable in Birmingham, the weather picked up around lunchtime and I had sunshine for most of the second half of the journey. Much more pleasant!
