I am about to head back to Florida. To get ready, I am uploading this photo from one of the many roadside fruit stands that can be seen all around. I forget if these were Oranges or grapefruit.

This historic church building dates back to 1870, but was altered and a new facade was added in 1914. I don't believe this building is on the National Register of Historic Places, but it was one of six nominated in 1983 as the "Churches of South Nashville." Today, the building is "The Bell Tower" event venue.

From Wikipedia:
The Southern Railway Depot is a historic building in Decatur, Alabama. The depot was built in 1904–05 along the Southern Railway line. Decatur had become a transportation hub of North Alabama by the 1870s, with its connections to the Tennessee River, the east-west Tuscumbia, Courtland and Decatur Railroad (later operated by the Memphis and Charleston Railroad and the Southern Railway), and the north-south Louisville and Nashville Railroad. It functioned as a passenger station until 1979, when Amtrak cancelled its Floridian service. The station is built of brick painted white, with quoins on the corners. The building has a rectangular central section with narrower wings stretching along the tracks. The central section has a hipped roof, while the wings have gable roofs; both have deep eaves with decorative brackets. The main entrance is covered by a porte-cochère with arched openings. The depot was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

Painted as part of Rock City's barn painting advertising program, this building is along highway US27 north of LaFayette, GA. You can't really tell now, but it's not actually a barn, but instead is an abandoned auto mechanic shop.

Although I just recently visited this barn for the first time, I learned about it several years ago when the owner tried to revive the business and Rock City repainted the roof. I guess it didn't work out. Here is a photo of the repaint:
www.timesfreepress.com/news/local/story/2013/mar/05/georg...

Here is a Google Map view from 2008:
goo.gl/maps/e64BMcyPJSk

This is now one of 87 different Rock City Barns I have photographed and uploaded to Flickr in my Rock City Barns set. People often ask me how I've found so many of them. I have drawn from many resources such as books and web sites and sometimes luck, but there's not really one "go to" place to find them all. Well, now on my website, I have tried to create a one stop source for the locations of all of the barns I've been to. On my Map of Rock City Barns page, I have plotted each barn on a Google Map.

From Wikipedia:

The most recognizable gifts in Big Spring Park are the iconic red Japanese bridge and cherry trees, given by Japanese Major General Mikio Kimata. From 1964 to 1966, Kimata, then a Lieutenant Colonel, attended Redstone Arsenal's Ordnance Guided Missile School program. As thanks to the city for its hospitality when hosting him, Kimata donated the original 60 Yoshino Cherry trees. He followed up on this gift with the donation of a "friendship bridge" to celebrate the United States Bicentennial. The bridge was formally dedicated on May 3, 1977. In 1998, Kimata and the Japanese Society of Alabama partially financed a major $36,000 renovation of the bridge. The bridge was restyled, expanded, and given a gentler slope.
