Took a little trip to Mesopotamia Ohio recently. Mesopotamia is a quiet little village built around a town square, and most of the little stores have been moved together to form a quaint little montage of buildings. All are more or less attached to the original General Store. There is one church, one store, and one gas station and they surround the square. There's even a little band stand. Mesopotamia was settled by Mennonites, and there are also quite a few Amish folk there. I even caught three "two door sedans" for sale. When walking around the square, the scent of Horse Manure settles in the nostrils. The shots of the old store was kinda hard to get into with the lens I was using that day. Camera used is my Minolta X7a with 70-210mm Minolta Celtic MC Zoom. Film Kodak ASA 200.
Mesopotamia is originally a place of birth of the modern civilization. As I wrote the meaning of the word is "between rivers" in this case Euphrates and Tigris. It is hard to believe now. Both of them looks today rather a grave place of civilization. Though, that in Ohio seems to be much more peaceful
