I love having the opportunity to go out and photograph local small businesses, the owners and their employees!! It's a great way for me to get up close and personal with these workers as well as get a feel of the community that they work and serve in.
Not only did I learn a thing or two about tires, the process and skills that go behind it but I also was able to gather a feel on the small, quaint town of Carbon Hill, Alabama! These guys have a nice following of locals within their community and the perfect location. They are situation off the main hwy, probably just a half mile off of I-22. The two workers Bob and Jeffery have been with this company for over 10 years now and the owner John has been in the tire business for generations.
To say these guys are knowledgeable would be an understatement. They could probably work on cars with their eyes closed!
I also enjoyed meeting some of their local patrons that frequent the tire shop. David was one of the friendly faces. He drove the most awesome vintage orange pick up truck.. so of course I grabbed a photo!
