Photography: The NC I See at Christmas

These are photos of Downtown Williamston, NC. I took these pictures on Christmas Eve. Downtown is equivalent to about two to four city blocks. I love it! Small towns have a certain charm about them during this time of the year. Otherwise, it was a great time spent with family and friends.

Thank you! *humbled* I look at life so differently since I picked up a camera. I try to see it at all angles.

That town sho is small... 4 blocks? Dang!

The black and white photo is really nice.

How was the Christmas? Eat alot? How was it being back there?

Stephen A. Bess said...

yes downtown is small. The total pop. is a little of 5,000 people. It's always good to be back and to see some of my family and classmates who remained. I did eat, eat, eat! It's seems like all the time. My Christmas experience was great! It was nice for us to be with grandpa. I enjoyed it a great deal. Thanks!

Thats wonderful!

Your grandfather is still alive? How Blessed he is and all of you to have an elder of such wisdom around still.

Is he the eldest living family member?

Stephen A. Bess said...

Yes, we are truly blessed. He is the eldest. There are a few family members who are around the same age, but I think that he is the eldest.

I'm wondering where Williamstown is. I'm from Charlotte and I've never heard of Williamstown. It seems like a small country town. Nonetheless, the photos are nice!!!

Stephen A. Bess said...

It's in Eastern Carolina near Greenville and yes...It's small. :)Thanks!
