In my previous post I commented on how I was unsure how to title this next one. I guess the main things I take away from these photos are the properties of paint and the unique textures they provide.
Perry has a number of murals, or what remains of murals, painted on the side of many buildings. Can you tell what is painted here?
My sister giggled as I got up close and personal with this next mural:
This was on the same wall as the Laundromat sign from Perry Part 2:
Before this I had never used chipping paint as a focus of my photography. However, I have to say I quite liked it, and will probably try it again!

And now for the more artistic photographs of Perry…
As my sister and I walked through Perry various signs caught my eye:
This front window was so clean I was able to experiment with what is on, behind, and before the glass. What do you notice?
One of my favourites from the day. I like to see the natural, weathered look, that happens to objects.
These photos make me wonder what Perry was like 5…10… 20… or 50 years ago.
For more information behind the inspiration to these pictures please see Perry Part 1: Storytime.
For more pictures of signs see Halifax: Part 2.
Stay tuned for the third and final part of our Perry journey– AND my FAVOURITE pictures from the trip! I am not sure whether I should title it “Paint” or “Textures”

For years my family has been going to Letchworth State Park. On our way there we pass through the town of Perry. I have always admired the quaint little town and as a child marveled at the downtown core (as an adult I view the downtown area a little differently). On our most recent camping trip my sister and I decided to walk its streets and see all it has to offer. My main objective was to take photographs, but other things happened along the way.
First, we stopped by this great thrift shop! If you follow me on Pinterest or Twitter you may already know about my love for second-hand stores. Not only do I love a good deal, but I mostly feel good about reusing an item rather than always buying new. I try to be environmentally conscious.
Anyways, the deals at this store were great! The staff was also very friendly. We ended up purchasing three, 1000 piece puzzles for 25 cents! If ever in Perry (New York) please stop by The Community Clothes Closet and Thrift Store.
As we continued our travels I was excited to find a Little Free Library! It’s the first I had ever seen! I have been following Little Free Library on Twitter and always wondered where these things pop up! Well the posts are true, these mini libraries do exist and they follow the reuse and give motto.
Finally, I can’t forget to mention here, the wonderful posters outside a store that promotes animal health as well as the importance of spaying or neutering your animals. I took a picture of my favourite sign:
Stay tuned for the actual photographs I am proud to say I took that have more of an artist’s flare.
