I made it back to the State Capitol to cover the first floor and with only minutes to spare before closing, I ran down to the tunnels to see if they are worth photographing. They will be off-limits in a week and my decision is that I need to go back and spend one day shooting them. Next week is basically the last week of summer and with the State Fair in town I don't know what to say about spending 3 hours or so down in a tunnel system but I'll see if I can manage it. If I don't, I may miss an opportunity to capture them before they are renovated.
At any rate, I also made it into one of my old neighborhoods this past week for an errand, and whenever I get over there I usually end up stopping in my old favorite grocery store, The Wedge.
It is a cooperative that features organic food with a focus on sustaining local organic growers. It's a real feel-good experience shopping there. The food is healthy and buying there means supporting local farmers who are using clean growing methods. But I'm not going to kid around, the real reason my kids want to stop there is for the cookies in the bakery.
I have a favorite in there too, it's called the Black Angus.
It could be after the cow or maybe there's an AC/DC fan working in there. Either way, I love it. The bakery, the cheese department, and the bread section are all wonderful.
So, please take a trip with me through The Wedge and I will be reporting back on the State Capitol soon.
