i heart faces - Places I love

I want to start challenging myself to participate in more i heart faces challenges. At least two a month. I am so excited for next weeks I can hardly stand it. I already know what I am going to do. Anyhow, this week is places i love. If you know me well at all you know how in love with Jerome AZ I am. In fact it is my very favorite place in all of AZ. I love it so much I have already been there twice, (just in the past year) and plan to go back quite a bit more. Since my husband knows of my love affair he willingly tags a long with me, and I think is even happy to do it. I also credit Jerome with helping me find who I am as a photographer. Okay, here are a few of my favorites from Jerome, and a few of the reasons why I love it so much.

It's full of fun shops, and art galleries.
Jerome 1
The old rustic architecture is any photogarphers dream.

I love the nostalgia, and the history. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that the food is good too!
Jerome 3
Just in case you aren't up on your AZ history. Jerome was an old copper mining town (set on a hill). It's population peaked in the 1920's, and then quickly dwindled in the 50's when the mind shut down. In the 60's in was considered a ghost town even by the less than 100 people who still lived there. Today it is a national landmark, and state park.
To see more of the places people love visit i heart faces.
