The 2 Things Challenge for this week is Prize/Door. This actual door is only plate glass and aluminum, but ooh the prize. First, there's the curly design on the burglar bars, neat. But even better is the inside of the store. It's like the old hardware stores when I was growing up, stacked floor to ceiling with all sorts of stuff to explore and see, like Brute plastic garbage cans, a metal garbage can full of holes on the side (what's up with that?), and a sign for Presto Cookers in the window. And this one is right in downtown Birmingham in the heart of Five Points South. I also loved the pattern in the brick facade. They just don't bother with that stuff in the new strip malls and the corner Ace Hardware or Lowe's.
