Naugle's Store & Post Office - Brixey Missouri by 

This is the old Naugle’s Store & Post Office, located in Brixey Mo. Whenever I used to take my Mom on a drive to Rockbridge, we would always come to Naugle’s Store to buy some picnic supplies. Mom would always visit with Bessie Naugle, the owner, about old times. The last time I was here and it was open was about 15 years ago. My family lived about a half mile from here in the 1950’s (before I was born) and my older brothers & sisters went to both Upper Brixey and Lower Brixey one room schools.

    Clue me in. Do you add anything except enhanced color? I find them emotional.

    This is a 3 exposure HDR image. When the images are combined, the resulting image has to be tone-mapped and then the colors enhanced. If there is emotional content, it would come from the subjects chosen, I would say. This old store in particular, is a place my family and I visited many times during my childhood. So for me, even though I never lived here like my older siblings, it still has a feeling of “home” and “the good old days”. I can take hours working on an image like this, which is fun for me, so maybe you get a sense of that from viewing the image. Thank you for your comments!
