If I see something interesting, I shoot from the driver's seat or jump out & set up the tripod for a quick click. It's the drive-by life of a photographer on the move. Welcome to my world.

Country store in Ethridge, Tennessee

On my way to Lawrenceburg, TN I stopped at this country store on US43 in Ethridge, TN and took some nice photos as I walked around. But on a Thursday afternoon this place was closed. Too bad. I would have liked to get a cold drink and a sandwich. Maybe next time.

Along US43 in Ethridge, Tennessee

Ethridge, TN DSC_0509_E

I was on my way to Lawrenceburg, Tennessee the other day, driving south down US43 and I found this spot in Ethridge. I first heard about Ethridge a couple years ago when I aked my friends down here where to get fresh fruits and vegetables. They told me to go to Ethridge because the Amish sell these items in an open air market and in stands along the backroads.

But when I got there (it's still too early Spring) there was none of that but I did find this place to take some photos.

Many of the homes were built by prominent architects, such as Albert Kahn, Louis Kamper and William Stratton, for some of the area's most prominent citizens, such as Edsel Ford. A lot of homes are very large, with some over 12,000 square feet. Many have a carriage house, with some of those being larger than an average suburban home. Some of the houses also have large amounts of Pewabic Pottery tiles.
