Around Town - Perspectives Photo Challenge #11

Welcome to  Perspectives Photo Challenge co-hosted by myself,
Lena of Lena B Photography & Natalie of When Shutters Click!

Perspectives is a weekly photo challenge and link up.
Basically we (the hosts) have 1 theme to share each week.
We want YOU to take and share 3 photos of said theme in YOUR perspective!
Show us how YOU see things.
We will do the same, and then link up to the party.

This weeks theme is Around Town.
I had SO much fun with this one! 
So much so that couldnt help but share MORE than 3 with you all.
You can find the rest of the photos of my town in {this post}.
But Ive saved my FAVORITE photos from Around my town for this weeks challenge.

First up:
This is a lovely old building, which I have always admired.
That man with the top hat on the side of the building always catches my eye.
Plus I just love walking around INSIDE this building and checking out all the lovely antiques it holds.

This is the old State Theater. I remember going here to see a movie when I was really young.
But they dont show movies here anymore. Its more for live shows.
But its a gorgeous historic building, with so much history.
I truly find it fascinating, the old ticket booth out front, the decor on the inside, 
the "coming attraction" window displays. Its all wonderful to me.
The beautiful clock tower is one of my favorite things about my little town.
"The Cone & Kimball Building, with its 100-foot ornate Victorian clock tower, was originally built in 1886 and became “one of the most photographed buildings of the region.” It was often referred to as the “heart of Red Bluff” and was a regional icon." -Via
The clock tower used to be a part of a gorgeous building, but it burned down 1984. It was then rebuilt (I believe) in 2001 as part of cone & kimball plaza. Please check out THIS photo of what the clock tower building used to look like before it burned, and was rebuilt.

To thank you for linking up, each host is picking a photo to feature.
This week I am sharing this beautiful photograph from Lena!

A Little Tour of My Town

 Shirt: Ross, Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters (old)Shoes: Payless (a gift for my birthday!)
Necklace: Chains Of Grace (read about the necklace here),
Bag c/o: Jo Totes (I won it!), Custom Key Chain: DIY, Headband: Agape Love Boutique

For those of you who are familiar with the Perspectives Photo Challenge link up I Co-Host,
you might already know that this weeks challenge theme is "Around Town"!
Such a fun theme! I was super excited for this one.
Ive been wanting to photograph some amazing places, building and things around my town for a long time now. Just never made it a priority to do, until now!

I put on some comfy clothes and shoes, pulled my hair out of my face, left my face mostly makeup free, and grabbed my gorgeous camera bag before heading out to drive around and photograph my town. I mostly stuck to my favorite part of town which is right around Main street, Red Bluff.

This is where the beautiful clock tower is, where all the old time looking shops are, with lots of antique shops, and pretty things to look at. We have a beautiful little town here, with lots of history. The photos Ive taken don't even cover the half of the pretty and interesting historic sites here and things to see here.

Since the photo challenge I co-host is limited to only 3 photos,
I decided I would share the photos from my town today and save my 3 favorites for the challenge! :)
So here is a small look around my beautiful little town of Red Bluff.
I hope you enjoyed a little peek into my town!  I encourage you all to take some time to photograph your favorite spots in YOUR town and link your photos up with us on Friday!

Sometimes you just need a laugh on a Tuesday Morning.
I saw this and it made me laugh a little.
Mostly because I was about to work on this sponsor call post,
and talk about my great prices.... ♥
So I couldn't help but share this "unbeatable price" with you, first. ;)

Well anyways, if you are looking to get the word out about your blog or shop,
you will find my prices truly are a great deal. Priced with those who are just starting out in mind.
I know how it is, Ive been there. And I believe everyone, big or small, new or well established deserves good advertisement! On top of that I am offering a 15% discount to those who purchase any size ad space from now until the 30th. Just use code "UNBEATABLE". ;) Ive conveniently added my passion fruit ad shop at the end of this post for you. If you need a little help to decide if its worth it to sponsor this little blog of mine, here are a few of my current stats:
