Asheville Argus: Archive purge

I spend a good deal of time downtown and I photograph compulsively (a fact that has been covered in previous Argus posts and ought to be self-evident by now anyway).  The combination leads to a staggering amount of downtown photos. 

I try to make the Argus timely and cohesive, but on occasion I must admit defeat.  Sometimes there are great photos that just aren’t relevant to any deeper trends.  Those go into the archive, which now contains photos that are going on five years old.  Good images, but no context in which to place them.

So for today, an archive purge.  It’s summer, everyone is lazy, and the streets are packed with people.  From the way they’re dressed, it could be inferred that no one cares about context anyway.  So here are some photos.  File them under “Seen Downtown.”
