The route out of Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, heading to Mountain City, Tennessee, we passed a couple of old Gas Stations along the way. SuzyMae and I had to stop for a few photos.
I shot this last year on my trip back from SXSW 2010 on approach to JFK, but it seems more appropriate pic for this year, way too may people, way to spread out, way to crowded. I hope they tighten it up for SXSW 2012.
ps. not that it wasn’t fun and informative, just fell short of expectations.
FinallyÂ heard from Kassandra today via a blog post, looks and sounds like they are having a great time
