And here we have...the street where she broke up with me.

Alex and I took these Friday afternoon...

You are standing on Fry Street. Oak is to your left, Hickory to your right. That hole in the ground was the front of The Tomato.







SO WEIRD to be able to see the Language Building and the Art Building from back here...





cue the pathetic fallacy



At least someone salvaged a piece (as seen while driving down Hickory).

Oh wow. Thank you for posting these! That is so weird to see the language building. Love the gum ball machine.

*sobs*

Great pictures. Just so odd to see.

Make me a friend on your flickr account so I can find you.

For the outsider here, what's The Tomato?

Ellen Aim said...

Vel: It is kinda ew. and is it wrong that the gumball machine just looks like a giant Tom Servo to me?

Tri: Will do! I also need to get a digital camera which will inspire me to download more!

Al: If you scroll down a few posts to "Dear Josh..." you'll see not only what The Tomato was, but what became of it. (College pizza joint, basically).

It's nice to see that Tom Servo found a new home. I hope he lays off the steroids, though.

CSJ: He's been hitting the Weight Gain 4000 AGAIN...

Triana: I DID IT! It was VERY sad how long it took me to figure out how to add someone as a contact. I shouldn't be around anything dangerous, like paper.

Brilliant!! :) Got you added. I'm totally hooked on the mini-moo cards, but I have no photos that would translate well with them. And I bought my very first polarizing filter today. It's like I'm a real photographer! (ok, everyone STOP laughing..I'm allowed to pretend!)

Oh yes, Rebel XT, my friend. I can't go back.

Veloute said...

I think it's Tom Servo, too.

Ellen Aim said...

CSJ--I can totally see it!

Triana: *DROOLS*; I'll have to check out the mini-moos, fun to say too!

Vel: Not sure where I would have put it, personally. But then, I would have gone for the jukebox...

Crazy pics -- never thought I would see a day without those old buildings on that corner.

Hey, thanks for stopping by!

Yeah, it's weird and depressing as hell. I'm not sure it's really Denton anymore without the Fry Street staples.
