Once you finally transition to making a hobby into a job, you forget to just go and do what you love for the sake of it. Last week, I did some wandering and exploring, which used to be the only thing I did regarding photography. I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who actually loves taking photos in the city of Belvidere, IL. I think it's so beautiful, especially going into the fall. For those of you not familiar, it is also known as the city of murals.
I also have a thing for doors, and this city has some legit doors.
This door sort of makes me feel like I'm about to walk in to the Moulin Rouge, which I have actually been to and there is lots of red and gold!
Cutest candy store ever, by the way.
I die for buildings like this!
