    Real Name:
    I intended to document the final 6:00 am opening off this small independent grocer for a local paper in Monroe County, Illinois. After twenty five years it has been purchased by a national chain and this was its last day of existence. I also wanted to photograph it without the distraction of cars and people.When I got there I noticed the bare tree and the store bleeding all over the parking lot from its neon sign and decided that was my picture. The closing of this store has resulted in mixed emotions from Monroe County residents so I thought the slight melodrama of the image was appropriate.
