Parking Structures

It’s grungy parking bits day (or abstracted view-o-ramp to get there day, anyway). Have a great weekend, everyone!

Nick Miller: “Why are you holding Fish Sticks?”

Jessica Day: “Because… I’m gonna go scare the feral cats away that live in my current parking spot, Nick… I’m gonna throw Fish Sticks at them… while singing memory and… don’t you dare criticize me!”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

Here’s the underside of an overpass… which is… up-ish, right? I’m not exactly following these challenges to the letter (hopefully I won’t get into too much trouble).

Larry Johnson: “I thought…”

Officer Foster: “Don’t think boy. Meow, do you know how fast you were going? Meow… what is so d*** funny?”

Larry Johnson: “I could have sworn you said meow.”

Officer Foster: “Do I look like a cat to you, boy? Am I jumpin’ around all nimbly bimbly from tree to tree? Am I drinking milk from a saucer? Do you see me eating mice? You stop laughing right meow!”

Larry Johnson: “Yes sir.”

Officer Foster: “Meow, I’m gonna have to give you a ticket on this one. No buts meow. It’s the law. Not so funny meow, is it? MEOW!”

Tower, Alton Illinois

Here’s a tower… deal. Since I’m on an Alton kick. It’s printed a bit flat… someday I’ll probably scan the negative and pump up the contrast in a few spots, but for now, I’m kinda digging all the similar mid-tones. I think.

Prince: “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair…”

Rapunzel: “Not a chance, dude. Do you know how long it takes me to condition all this stuff? Get a friggin’ rope. Then we can talk.”

Concrete Piers

Here are some concrete piers I photographed down by the river. Have a great weekend everyone!

“Now as your father probably told ya’, My name is Matt Foley, and I am a motivational speaker. Now let’s get started by lettin’ me give you a little bit of a scenario of what my life is all about. First off, I am 35 years old, I am divorced, and I live in a van down by the river.”

SCP

OMG, look!  Someone finally wrote on my wall!

Okay, this isn’t really my wall (although it is right outside our store). It’s possibly our landlord’s wall, although it’s probably the city’s wall. See what I’ve done here? I just kicked off the weekend with some underwhelming exciting commentary on property rights, land easements, metes and bounds and… other… zoning… stuff.

Oh well, I guess all lame exciting stories must come to an end at some point. Have a great weekend, everyone!
