I had my camera with me when I was in Big Spring, TX, and on my lunch break, I decided to go through a drive-thru and get some food, then go exploring the downtown area. Even though the light is the worst for photography at noon, I decided to see what I could find anyway.

First I came upon the Petroleum Building that had interesting hanging lights. I took a few pictures of the front, then headed on. A little later, I circled around and found myself on the backside of the building. There were some pretty interesting things back there.

The building next door had a very cool rusty door on the back.

Also next to these buildings was an abandoned bank. The drive-thru lanes were still there, as well as an old sign.

From there, I drove down 2nd Street and down some side streets where I came upon an old café and an old tattooing parlor. I’m really not sure how long these have been closed down.

From there I decided to head back, but before I made it back to Gregg Street, I found the hotel that looks as if it’s being renovated.

There were quite a few things to take pictures of, and I could’ve spent more than an hour taking pictures. I’ll probably head back sometime to photograph the rest of the town, as well as the Big Spring State Park.

    I was stationed at Webb Air Force Base in Big Springs from Feb 1962 until Nov. 1963-It was absolutely the worst assignment of my 20 yr. career.

    Truman: Sorry to hear that! Care to shed any light on why it was your worst assignment, or is that classified?
