Port Gibson

Port Gibson

One of the towns I've been wanting to visit for a while is Port Gibson, which is just up Hwy. 61 from Natchez. We stopped there on our way home from Natchez and spent a couple of hours there walking around and photographing the downtown area. One of the things that kept standing out when looking down the main downtown street was the courthouse tower, so I wanted to capture that. Unfortunately, as is the case in most places I visit, power lines were EVERYWHERE! I love electricity, don't get me wrong, but I hate power lines, because they ruin the asthetic of historic small towns. The good thing about digital photography is that they can be removed, although it can be quite tedious at times. I felt it was worth it to remove them here to rid the photo of the distraction.
