Perspective Photo Challenge ~ Around Town

I have been wanting to go and take pictures
around town for a long time
this weeks Perspective Photo Challenge
gave me the opportunity.

Loved how the colours of the leaves framed one of the church steeples

this building was once the First National Bank, now it is a second hand store

I am thinking this was the railroad station at one time.
Laurium and Calumet are two attached towns in Upper Michigan.  During the mining time they were flourishing towns and at one time Calumet was going to be the capital of Michigan. These towns have a lot of history and I didn't even realize how much until I started walking up and down some of the streets.   Many of the stores and buildings have wonderful architecture but upkeep is needed. There are still many more pictures to take and ones that I still have to share, one of these days I will do another post of "around town".
