  • Old familiar IGA logo and weird unfamiliar IGA logo.

    Lefthand comfort and righthand discomfort. Tall column of siding! Two garbage cans seems like one too many but I'm not from around here so maybe there's more to the story than what I could know. ----------------------- In Mackinaw City, Michigan, on Ju…

  • Eccentricity door.

    The kinds of people who like to do this kind of thing are probably attracted to "123" address numbers, right? ----------------------- In downtown Schenectady, New York, on August 29th, 2016, on the east side of Jay Street, south of Franklin Street. ---…

  • A visit to the Beauty Complete Esthetique in downtown Sault Ste. Marie.

  • Exploding fireworks of clump of delightful goldenrod in a private lot.

    It's hard to see it from all the way over here, but it's the "private lot" for Mr. James Hairstylist, which closed in 2013. "But don't paint over the sign and don't let people park here for free, I guess," I said disapprovingly. -----------------------…

  • Bricks go to grass and gravel.

    Different directional orientations of laydowns of bricks are abutting one another here. Ah how our view of the foreground transition zone from gravel and grass to bricks gets messed with by the shadows cast by sun shining on bare branches. Gets messed wi…
