I've been going through vacation photos and thought I would share this "barn".
This is the Boyds Bear store in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee which is just on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains.
Unfortunately, the store was not open very long. I know there was at least one other store in Pennsylvania, but I do not know if it is still in business.
We've been back to The Smokies a few times since these photos were taken, but I don't know what the building is used for now.
Notice the date stamp. These were made with the first digital camera I bought.
I think I used it 3 or 4 years before I upgraded. And when I did upgrade, I realized what an awful camera it was. The lag between my hitting the shutter button and when the scene was completely recorded was tremendous. And, it ate batteries. I still have the camera card I used. 128 MB. Yes, MB. It would hold only 7 or 8 of my RAW+jpeg now.
So much has changed with technology in just ten years. And I love it!
Anyway . . .
If you've never been to the Great Smoky Mountains, consider putting it on your vacation list.
