I see you've taken an out of state trip:-) These little fireworks places are so abundant in Missouri it's pitiful...to me. An excellent image.

The letters on the billboard looks greater than the building itself ! Great!!! ;-)

These fotos are so special, are you going to have an exhibition with them? You easily could do so.

I love this shot Grant. These little jewels that you find along the roadside are so amazing...

I like the owner's sense of humor - Emporium in a fireworks stand is very funny. Nice shot of the place. I like the road included to help us "get" the setting.

I like the label and the composition

always impressed by these fireworks "emporiums" "warehouses" and "superstores" but, why are they always tucked away like this? i like this.

@david: i'm guessing they don't make popular neighbors...
I’m sure the sign can be seen for miles, but the hut seems lonely with nothing but distant fields and empty roads surrounding it, but you found it so I’m sure others have as well :} I like the framing that includes the distant fields as well as the foreground windswept grass to give context.

amazing is the space between the camera( you) and the subject, gives a special effect!!
15 Jun 2009 6:16pm
Wonderful shot and excellent quality, I'm just imagining Laurel & Hardy going in there to ask for a job....!!*!*

Simple and effective B+W image in deed
15 Jun 2009 9:45pm
Very special shot....passed many of these in the South.

A little early for July 4th, but that's fine. This is amazing- a fireworks vendor in the country side? What are they trying to start a forest fire, haha.

@Howard F.: they're all over the rural highways around here. this one is off a big highway. the road in the shot is just an access road. i don't know how they stay in business.
A tribute to isolation Grant! Superb image in every respect!

I suppose when you're in the middle of nowhere, it's comforting to see a huge Fireworks Emporium sign. Terrific find/capture. Love the lettering, perspective, compo...
16 Jun 2009 3:14am
looks like the ABSOLUTE place to get your fireworks!! :) you can even set them off nearby!! ;)

Cracking shot, love it.

This wonderful image cracked me up. The composition is excellent and helps exemplify the notion of a rural emporium.

This area seems to be deserted and the house seems to be alone in the vastness of the country. Again a great finding, Grant.

I like shots of fireworks stands. I'm going to have an get out and shoot a few of the numerous ones that line the road on the way to my house.

looks like an emporium to me. and more of a fun place to blow $$$ than a casino (just my opinion).
something about how you've framed the sign is just lovely. as if you've left room for the fireworks sky.

@michele: i do like these places... (and hate casinos)
Nebraska? Almost looks like a beach scene.
16 Jun 2009 10:46pm
I like this composition and the perspective and as always this BW is just great
