Unionville, Orange and Mine Run— A New Perspective

“Science and art have that in common that everyday things seem to them new and attractive.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

My travels took me up Rt. 20 to Unionville and Orange. On the way back I took a shortcut down Rt. 621 through Mine Run. Today I decided to put Nietzsche to the test taking photos of scenes that most take for granted, if they notice them at all, and ran them through my photo program to see if we can make the commonplace, “new and attractive.”

Orange-Out With the Old
As you come into Orange on Rt. 20 there is a beautiful sign welcoming you to the town. When you make the left to come into old town Orange glance off to the right as you come up the hill and you will see the original welcome sign at the edge of a parking lot.
