Cool pic!
Hey, what's that in the middle of the street, in the building shadow...?
"Dead Cat in the Middle of the Road, Stinkin' to high H......."

Looks like a Pile of Rock or a Cactus ? Is there Cactus in Georgia ? Of course Could also be road apples with all the Horses.

Road apples from the Amish around here Get scattered Pretty Quick By Trucks & Cars. So We don't see much of them in the Wild.

Alot of ghosts walking around back then.
I think that's the reason when portraits were taken back then,
people were told to be still for what appeared to be long periods.
if someone moved in the middle of the exposure process
they left a ghost :coffee2:
