Question - was it dusty? I always imagine these stores as being dusty old places - which adds to the atmosphere
Darren: wonderful capture - location, composition, subject are spot-on, and these can be so hard to do. Congrats...about your post processing. I suspect I know what you did...perhaps you might take it just a bit further. Desaturate the color even more, and add another 30% sepia to the mix, or adjust the colors for that "vintage, faded postcard" look. But even without any suggestions from me, this is a winner. Cheers!

What a collection - I like the Street Girls notice at the top!
I've been to Helen so many times, Darren, but never been to the Old Sautee Store. Next time I'll make an effort to swing by. smile
You will be able to get the stick of a fighter plane, or maybe you like light aircraft flight entertainment, no matter that the you found all sorts of games that will take you to the white clouds!
