TGIF: Sleepy, Locked in the Past and Unchanging

If you're not from the Midwest on visiting smaller villages, towns and cities they may appear a bit sleepy, locked in the past and unchanging.  Return at a later time and you will discover that indeed changes occur.

In 2009 begin photographing Huntington, Indiana.  At that time uncovered an example of change.

A brightly painted Tienda Mexicana.  Would seem to indicate that the population was more diverse than at first imagined.

Returning this year - 2017 - discovered La Morena is gone.

Often what is sleepy, locked in the past and unchanging is the exterior architecture.  Over time what changes is it's interior use.
