Uncover Rolla
Uncover Rolla” is a project developed by a Phelps County newcomer discovering beauty through photography in Rolla, Missouri. This project will contain photos from in and around Rolla. The subjects will be based upon nature, architecture and culture found on a weekly basis as the photographer scouts out new content. This project was realized by Rachel Jung in early Spring 2013. As an IT Analyst by day and amateur photographer by night, she is looking for Rolla’s hidden charm that is waiting to be \x34uncovered.\x34

As I was editing photos from my Easter Sunday stroll about town, I realized how easy it was to capture Pine Street while everyone was in church or spending time with family. The streets were clear. Businesses closed. I had Pine Street all to myself. I had to laugh when I thought I saw some “walkers” and if you watch “The Walking Dead” you know what I am talking about.

Let me just take a moment and say how much I love book stores. Especially used book stores. Flipping through the pages, the smell. Trading in old ones for new old ones. I can easily find something to read here. And spend hours looking. Just looking. Reading back covers. The first photo is of Violet Sunshine Books & Beads. On my first trip in some time ago, I bought a copy of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Essays: Second Series written in 1844. The original owner gave her name and dated it 1920. It was fragile.

Reader’s Corner is another favorite. I spend time in the Autobiography/Memoir section. I recommend The Liars’ Club by Mary Karr.

Used. On the corner at Reader's Corner.

Kent Jewelry is a usual stop for me. Ring cleaning. Watch battery. Engraving. My go-to jeweler. And the nicest people work here!Kent.

The Phelps County Bank building was built in the 1930′s not only as a bank but also a hotel.

Into the sun. PCB in living color.No right turn.



Langston Interiors, Rolla Rare Coin & Stamp and andFlew! Studios across the street. I love these old brick buildings downtown. andFLEW!
