Signage method; kind of sign.

Northern Southeast Ohio.

  • I will be safe under this old bridge, along this frozen creek.

    Having been informed by a nearby historical marker that this bridge was a shelter for slaves attempting to escape the United States and its cruel horrors, I will eat a granola bar and think about the Underground Railroad. ----------------------- In New…

  • A large door but does it open?, does it slide L-&-R on tracks.

    I'm strongly getting a pigeon-manure-&-mice feeling about the place. Here is the old "What Smells Musty" building, a/k/a "Ol' Bigwalls." What is the meaning of the series of vertically-oriented demarcations, above the doorway. Did there used to be a flo…

  • A comb-over, over a blue slight-puffiness of a building.

    The sculptedly blue shapes appear to jump out & grab the viewer. The section of grey metal reminds me of the Backyard Shed architectural scene. ("Everyplace can't be expensive" etc.) Dangling icicles take me back to old memories of Cold War oneupmans…


  • This one's called "At Farmland's Edge."

    Possibly it's the husky brute you've been waiting for!, a knuckle boom loader to sweep you off your feet, and swing you dangling through the sky, and hurl you into a pit of bodies, and cover you over with soil and snow. ----------------------- In Deaver…

  • Signage method; kind of sign.

    I like the design and I wish that these kinds of signs weren't disappearing from the landscape. I disagree with progress. A passerby saw me taking pictures and told me, "They's gonny need to change they's name to 'Quinn the Eskimo' if this awful winter…

  • 50 wet McNuggets and old sausage patties and dirty scrambled eggs, strewn among the undergrowth of a snowy hillside in dreary southeastern Ohio, 3 days pre-xmas.

    During a variety of the phases my life I have eaten McDonald's foodstuffs, and at the times of those ingestions I had a hard time shaking the feeling that the food objects might not be nontoxic. ----------------------- In McConnelsville, Ohio, on Decem…


  • From people rubbing up against it w/ their skin oils.

    Historic architecture in cities needs to be subject to the same kinds of "Do Not Touch" rules as what art museums have. Look at the damage, from people's thoughtless hands and asses and whichever other body parts. I am becoming increasingly upset. ----…

  • Take me, Lady Luck, behind the pleated shades of your five different sizes of window.

    I see where some broken and tippy fiery-coloured uppercase letters are lightly affixed to some diagonally-oriented strips of grey wood this morning. ----------------------- In Zanesville, Ohio, on December 28th, 2010, in the "Sunrise Center" shopping ce…

  • Strawbales and pepsis are yet lit-up in electric, as a sunrise struggles to ascend behind gloomy December overcast.

    One of my favourite digital effects in all of photography is: the berserk things fluorescent lighting does when it hits onto straw and similar kinds of materials. The morning was too cold for needing pepsi so I didn't vi$it the ma¢hine. Vogue says: "Saf…


  • Every heart in town is enlarged and warm with gladness at the news of our raiders' recent pillagings.

    All of our godless enemies are starving to death and wailing because we've taken all of their food!, thank ya raiders. ----------------------- In downtown McConnelsville, Ohio, on December 22nd, 2010, a message re the "Morgan Raiders" of Morgan High S…

  • The erythematous congregants are wildly aflame. They know how to worship harder and faster than everybody else.

    Stopping Dropping & Rolling is the new snakehandling! The new inductees bear small electrical appliances during their baptisms — plugged in and turned on! The laying-on-of-hands ritual is a fusillade of smacks and slaps, to redden the skin and induce…

  • There are thirteen stripes at the left side of the flag, but only nine at the right.

    Forgive the muralist; it's an easy mistake to make. That Mediterranean-style decorative roofing up there transports me to historic Italy or someplace like that. The simplest kinds of snowcapped mountaintops are sometimes my favorites: Very few jagged cr…


  • Enticement to liver.

    Souvenir of my visit to the exterior of Peach's Place Restaurant-Pizza. ---------------------- In downtown Crooksville, Ohio, on December 22nd, 2010, on the north side of East Main Street, opposite Star Street. ---------------------- Library of Congre…

  • Curtains for Williams.

    That is to say, 'It is curtains,' as they say. A cute saying. Look close and you can make out the 'Williams Insurance Agency' message in the window. ----------------------- In downtown Shawnee, Ohio, on December 22nd, 2010, on the north side of Main S…

  • Food ideas.

    Oh sure the words are cute to say in juxtaposition, and it's funny to think about country people. ----------------------- In New Straitsville, Ohio, on December 22nd, 2010, a concession trailer parked on the south side of Main Street (Ohio Route 93), we…


  • Upturned Ford in Ohio.

    During a visit to Ohio on a cold and dull winter day in 2010, I found this car repair work being done amid these pink and green plastic jack-o-lanterns in a residential yard. I couldn't help but sneak a picture of the unusual scene! --------------------…

  • Very cute sign of Appalachia business.

    The latch hook owl wall hanging is missing an iris from one of its eyes. ----------------------- In New Straitsville, Ohio, on December 22nd, 2010, on the east side of Clark Street (Ohio Route 93) between Ewing Street and Main Street. -----------------…

  • Yellow appalachian storefront.

    In downtown Shawnee, Ohio, on December 22nd, 2010, on the north side of Main Street, west of 3rd Street. ----------------------- Library of Congress classification ideas: NA6225 Storefronts—United States—Pictorial works. HD257 Abandoned buildings—United…
