Downtown Vicksburg is great to shoot. The diversity of storefronts makes for interesting photos. I shot some nighttime shots a couple of times in December, especially when the leaves were just right on the little gingko tree at the corner of Clay and Washington. It's hard to catch the street cleared of traffic at night, but it can be pretty empty just after sunrise. You don't notice how many cars park along Washington Street in downtown until you try to shoot a picture of it. At night, the lamps make for a nice symmetrical photo. And fog doesn't hurt, either.
