walk around town

what i love about lawrence: it has great coffee, people-watching and shopping. and it is utterly walkable. here are some of my favorite spots/scenes around downtown.


the casbah market. their "most nice hummus" truly is most nice.


la prima tazza. i enjoy sitting here and listening to people discuss their problems.


au marché. my local escape to europe. thanks, lora, for letting me take photos inside your beautiful store!


the front part of au marché. i love lora's ever-changing displays as much as her unique merchandise.


prairie pond clothing & bead studio.


genovese. actually, my favorite restaurant is teller's, but i couldn't get a decent picture of it.


round pharmacy, one of the oldest buildings in downtown lawrence.


the bay leaf in its new location.


this beautiful mural near great harvest makes me stop and think. i can't decide if this thought - "everything connects to everything else" - makes the world seem simpler or more complicated.

Your photos are great. Looks like a cute town to live in. It would be nice to live in a place where one could walk everywhere.
