I hate shopping but I decided to take advantage of the Cold Water Creek Memorial Day Weekend sale.
I would have preferred to shop at their online store but I needed to try on the clothes I required.
Their store is in the mall portion of the Triangle Town Center but after shopping I walked around and photographed the miscellaneous stores that are outside of the mall.
The shopping center isn't far from me but it's relatively new and I'm not in the habit of going their (actually it opened over 10 years ago but that's new for me). Also, they didn't complete the shopping center until more recently (perhaps 5 years ago).
I have to laugh at their advertising which boasts they have North Carolina's only Saks Fifth Avenue store.
In my book once the store is in Raleigh, NC they should take Fifth Avenue off their name.
To me a mall is a mall but the part I photographed (called the commons) is fairly appealing to me.
I think they did a great job with the landscaping.
They also had some stores that looked intriguing, although I didn't go inside them.
I almost never go into a store unless it's totally unavoidable.
I guess I've made it pretty clear how much I hate to shop.
Many of the shots I'm using are centered around the Himalayan Frontier shop, the play with your food restaurant, and the Orvis Store. They captured my attention the most.
It was a cool morning but turned into a beautiful day so I wouldn't be surprised if weary shoppers ended up taking a break on these outdoor chairs.
I like to take photographs and I use blogging as a way to share my photography. I started blogging for other reasons but no longer feel the need or have the desire to write beyond a narrative for my photography.
