It’s not a Tuesday Trek, but it was still a trek. I went to Kentucky for dinner with my family. Before I headed home the next day, my mom and I headed out to Nicholasville for breakfast. We had delicious breakfast at Cottage Cafe on the edge of town. My current wish is to find a place like this on our Tuesday Trek! The service was great, the food was awesome, and the atmosphere everything I wanted. They also have lunch and dinner. That menu looked pretty good as well.
After eating, we went downtown so I could take photos of the courthouse. The courthouse itself is Gothic in design and looks different from most courthouses. I walked around a bit but I wanted to get home, so I couldn’t get as many photos as I wanted. But I will be back!

Signs are a definite favorite with myself and other photographers. Some are vintage, retro, or just retro looking. Billboards, neon, painted on buildings, I don’t know why we are drawn to them. Perhaps it’s that they seem to be art in their own right, created to draw people in. Even the most simple sign can garner attention and make us stop to stare. Some signs have the name of a business and some are warnings for what lies ahead. You’ll find a little bit of everything in this sign gallery.
