This photo may not be high quality, but I absolutely love the layers it has. First, there is the reflection of the cars on Main Street outside, and the buildings across the street. Then, there is the window itself, belonging to Bright's Candies, a century-old candy shop in downtown Walla Walla. Then there's what's inside: People shopping at the candy counter, the popcorn machine, and bags of caramel corn just inside the window. You may have to click to enlarge the photo before you can see it all. Bright's is a really fun place to go. Even if you don't want to eat anything (which I guarantee will not be the case once you get inside), it's fun to look at all the shapes of chocolate they have - and you can even watch the candy-maker at work behind a window! I've seen volleyball-sized orbs of chocolate shaped like a basketball in this shop. They also have vehicles, animals, fruits, and practically any other shape you can imagine. They make truffles, taffies, and chocolate-drizzled caramel corn. They even serve ice cream and chocolate sodas! If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place for you!

Imagine, here is a company that began business in the Depression and is still going strong.

What grabbed me, immediately, about this photo was the design of the sign. It's a classic and it's classy. I don't know if that's been Brights logo from day one but it looks like it could have been created 75 (almost) years ago.

Nice one Becky.

Becky this is eye candy! I agree with you -- so much to look at and all harmoniously blending together.

Plus -- did you really promise VOLLEYBALL-SIZED ORBS OF CHOCOLATE????!!!!!

I'm SOOOO coming to visit you!

I agree with Wayne. The sign pulled me right in.
