Downtown Chesterton

My previous posting of a picture from the 2009 Wizard of Oz Festival elicited a comment about the retro look of the town of Chesterton. Here's another picture I took along Main Street where I was trying to capture that feel.

I was looking at the "Main Street" and "Peggy Sue's Diner" signs in the viewfinder of the Holga camera. One of the many quirks of the camera is that you get more image on the medium format film than you see in the viewfinder. Thus I wound up with the old-fashioned barber pole on the right and the Wizard of Oz character (the scarecrow, I think) attached to the building at the top of the photo.
