This one is for my friends at Kodak!

Despite Ektachrome being cancelled in 120 and 35mm formats, I happened to find a decent sized stash in the back of my stores, mostly E100VS.

Over the Easter weekend I had a chance to go south…to Tennessee, and one of my stops was the towns of Bristol. Why towns? Simple there are two Bristols, one in Virginia and one in Tennessee, and they share a common downtown along State Street, as the name implies is the State line. When I stopped in on the town on my way down I was quickly rained out, but Monday as I started the long drive back home, the weather was perfect so I took an hour and just wandered along State Street.

Of other interesting fact…Bristol is the birthplace of Country Music.

State Street, very idilic with the Stars and Stripes moving softly in the slight breeze.

I just love these old school signs.

I wonder what’s behind these shutters…
