Charming Lafayette Part One

What is Lafayette? It’s my new hometown for the foreseeable future, one hour’s drive north from Indianapolis and two hour’s south from Chicago. Lafayette is full of charm- it has a quaint little downtown with a Main street and many little ‘mom and pop’ shops. Walking down Main street with a Leica and vintage lens circa 1950s, I took these images with a romantic eye towards a bygone era this town may have once enjoyed. This is part one, and there’s also part two which you should check out. Hope you’ll enjoy.
