Continuing my series of images from last weekend’s overnight trip to Jerome, AZ:
Once we got to Jerome on Saturday, we drove to the hotel and parked the car, and then we walked everywhere we needed to go. Jerome is built on the side of a steep mountain, and our hotel was at the top end of town. Walking downhill to visit the shops and restaurants was a breeze, but walking back to the hotel was a workout!
As usual, the nice thing about walking while carrying a camera is that you naturally notice more details about your surroundings. The image for today is a great example. This little shop is located at the end of the street where there is a steep U-turn switchback in the road. Normally while driving through Jerome you have to be extra cautious because of all the pedestrian traffic (especially on the weekends), and when you get to these steep turns you have to keep your eyes on the road. For that reason, I had never noticed this charming little pottery shop with the bright red door. But when we walked through town on foot, it was hard to miss the bright colors, especially with the late afternoon soon shining on the building’s facade:

I will be posting my shots from Jerome to a new set on Flickr–Jerome Arizona – 2011.03.12. Most of them won’t get their own blog post, but I encourage you to check out the set, especially if you have any interest in visiting the Jerome area.
