You Gotta Start Somewhere

Yep, I got to see it. According to the leftover sticky stuff above the painted lettering, it looks like we’re seeing the former world headquarters of “Sock Box.” (I’m hoping it wasn’t Suck Box, but one never knows.)

This brightly colored building sits about 20 feet from a railroad track in a somewhat run-down part of Decatur, and the color choice of the owner has always fascinated me. If nothing else, the headquarters certainly stands out from its dismal surrounding. And I mean, it had to be easy to give directions to customers… “Just look for the bright yellow building…” :)

And for the record, the sky was that blue, and the building was that yellow. The colors have not been saturated for this photo.
