Love the subject and the capture! Very vintage! LF

Love this! I still miss the Woolworth stores.


Iconic capture Malissa! Takes me back to those snowy days during the last minute Christmas shopping, Manhattan...awww!

Awesome capture of this historical company store, Melissa. It brings back so many memories as we had one of these in my small community. It is now gone as are so many other stores. Our community is a good example of changing times. F/L

The place, F.W Woolworth's department store downtown Greensboro, North Carolina. Inspired by the words of Dr. Martin Luther King..."We must meet violence with nonviolence." and following his principle of meeting hate with love to bring about change, four young black men, students from the local A&T University, having no idea for sure what would happen, began a non-violent protest by sitting down at the WHITE'S ONLY lunch counter and ordering a doughnut and coffee, with cream on the side.

About Melissa Bittinger

Melissa Bittinger

Sometimes the camera is my only tool, sometimes it's just one of the artistic tools I will utilize to create my vision.

I'll leave off when exactly that was but will say there were no computers then....shhh! My portfolio includes more traditional photography along with images enhanced with layers, textures, filters and other effects blended with the original image. This technique is referred to by many as photographic art or artistic photography. Sometimes this may be very obvious, sometimes it's a very subtle addition. I welcome any questions or comments you may have about my work....
