Sacked by the "downturn", an unemployed architect touring the country in a bus...



I used to live in New York City. I designed homes for the tycoons of Wall Street; Park Avenue, Scarsdale, Greenwich. It was great fun. And, after years of saving up for a down payment, I was just about to buy my own little place in Fleetwood, half an hour north of the city, when the economy fell apart. Architects are like canaries in a coal mine when the economy slows, and true to form, there were massive layoffs in firms all over the country. Devastation of the profession. So, I decided to try to find something else to do for a while. I bought a 23' school bus and I'm on the road to see if I can figure out what that might be.

Comfort, Tx

I got off I-10 a bit after San Antonio and took a frontage road for a while, which meandered a bit as it followed generally along I-10.  I allowed myself some stops to make some photos of farms and sheep, and then came across Comfort, an out of place, boutique-y little town full of lawyers, retirees, and the highest per capita collection of antique shops I've ever seen.
