This week’s PhotoPhun Challenge was to shoot some pics “Out of Town,” specifically, outside of Lorain. While I had a grand plan to hit certain cities around Lorain, life managed to get in the way. I was only able to get to two communities of the list I had made for myself.
I got the first one on the way home from work one morning this past week.
