May pride swell forevermore the bosoms of the residents of the city of Strawberry Point, Iowa, when they see the world's largest strawberry out in front of their ultramodernistic City Hall.

'10 Best of Year.

Among Tim Kiser's albums



  • Smiling Philadelphians!, of Philadelphia Mummers' Day Parade of New Year's Day '10.

    Or maybe they're grimfacedly hostile? I have never been very good @ recognizing the subtleties of facial expressions. I hope that they were enjoying Broad Street!, & that they were looking forward to a Year '10 that would end up being completely happy…

  • Philadelphia City Hall blue lineup of the "A Royal Flush" brand of portalets.

    I needed a pic bad of the Blue PortoSans at City Hall but Philadelphians kept getting in my way. Sorry I couldn't do better! ----------------------- In downtown Philadelphia on January 1st, 2010, the southwest corner of Philadelphia City Hall during th…

  • Somebody's wires or cables effort.

    Is there no better method for doing what ever the hell kind of wiring. Plus Jesus the glare coming off of that brick-red paint is eyescalding me and I am happy that I have got a camera to do my seeing for me 'cause I cannot look @ that. I'm sorry if I s…


  • A handrail to ease me up and down the outdoor staircase.

    It was somebody's design! "Oof just one more to go" is the self-talk that I shall ever associate with this staircase. Clutchin on to the safety rail means bendin way over @ either end of it, but I try not to let my crack show. -----------------------…

  • Billboard advertising idea of digging colourful gemstones out of the wet insides of poultry eggs.

    They gleam as prettily in the light as a Waterford Crystal Goblet of albumen does. In the time it took me to notice what I was doing, I had already bought three jewels. Fried eggs are delicious accompaniments to fried potatoes. ----------------------…

  • Let the plastic block the cars from entering.

    Well we're definitely into the new century/millennium now aren't we!, re: the futuristic styles of barricades available. Breezes are an ongoing challenge for this new kind, but autos usu. respect them because the yellow is an attn-getting colour. Imag…


  • Wilmington Delaware in a section of modest homeyness.

    I threw on a few underclothes and a pair of slippers and sat on the steps and toothlessly smoked. At night the motion-sensitive floodlights were the only things that pissed me off. ----------------------- In downtown Wilmington, Delaware, on January…

  • Old "Office Max" shop I noticed !!

    A very dreary clouded-over sunset. There is an "Office Depot" a short walk down the street but I forgot to snap any pics of it !! ----------------------- In New Castle County, Delaware, on January 3rd, 2010, on the south side of Churchmans Road (Delawa…

  • Looking out towards the sounds of flowing water.

    But I worry that the proximity of the open window to the urinal — and the awareness that there might be people just outside it — could trigger a paruresis. ----------------------- In Harrington, Delaware, on January 4th, 2010, inside the men's room of t…


  • Example of southern west-central Delaware style of architecture.

    To my eyes right now it looks like one of the strings of colorful streamers is interfering with handicapped accessibility but I've always found it difficult to try to translate back & forth between 2D & 3D so who the hell knows. I do like what's happen…

  • Tarpaulins partway got blew down by Delmarva fierce windstorm, and now the weird secrets of the little fenced-in area are all out and unenshrouded where people can see.

    I'd like to see a little more privacy how about. The grey lump things inside the fence, are those organic forms ? Are they Bushmiller Nancy/Sluggo "three rocks." ----------------------- In Bridgeville, Delaware, on January 4th, 2010, along the north s…

  • The oldtimey metal awnings are near to the buried remains.

    Ha ha when did zoninglaws start, when I die I want some awnings. In my belief, with a couple of minor tweaks to quirks of history the U.S. could've easily ended up with completely different customs and taboos re: what to do with people's old corpses? Wa…


  • Southern Delaware vertical blinds display.

    The neon burns so dim I cannot read what it says. Those little scraps of things down front could maybe be picked up and put away. ----------------------- In downtown Laurel, Delaware, on January 4th, 2010, along the north side of Market Street (Delawar…

  • How in the hell did the Canadians' beloved chain of donut restaurants "Tim Hortons" ever end up opening up a shoppe in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Of all places.

    First time I saw it I said, "What kind of a freakish experiment!" Canadian donuts in deepest backwards West Virginia, did you ever hear of anything so ridiculous in your whole entire life. Or your hole entire life ha ha. There are two (2) (2!) Tim Ho…

  • The kinds of quiet days I enjoy in the kinds of residential neighborhoods I enjoy. Except for all the cold.

    Re the street, I like that the snow takes on different colours as it mixes together with other substances. There are lots of things to feel good about here. ----------------------- In Parkersburg, West Virginia, on January 9th, 2010, Dillaway Street be…


  • Waiting for my ride to the airport!

    I've got my things all packed up and I'm ready to go, I wish my ride would hurry up and get here it's cold. I am a snowbird flying to Fort Myers! I know Ft Myers has got one of the biggest messes of U.S. Realestate-Mageddon but I'm just going down there…

  • Wet mess of sidewalk among double sunniness of downtown Minneapolis.

    Cool 2 suns! This will be the view from the lawnchair I might start bringing with me downtown. To explain the Saturday abandonment of this particular area of heart-of-town Minneapolis: The blue shiny new lettered bus-stop electronic readout signs ("A")…

  • Today the snow is light-brown in colour, plus so are all of the buildings.

    Part of me is getting hungry for a large bowl of warm oatmeal with brown sugar stirred into it, but the other part of me is getting revolted by the sewer-type odour that that pile of snow is giving off. "Centre Village," way back there, way up there, was…
