Different directional orientations of laydowns of bricks are abutting one another here.

Imagine these are palmtrees. The gravel area is a spread of white beachsand. The parking lot is the parking lot for the beach.

A huge dumpster enclosure for one puny dumpster, meantime over there there's another dumpster and it ain't even inside the enclosure.

This being Atlantic City, nobody cares about the mismanagement of the space occupied by the dumpsters and the dumpster enclosure. Land areas are not precious around here right now.

Good view of a parking garage access road from the topmost level of the parking garage it accesses. In Schenectady.

I think maybe the double yellow line and the dashed white line were the wrong design choices for communicating the multidirectionality of the center lane? Oh well, nobody cares, this being Schenectady.

Overgrown righthand side.

Extremely guardrailed expanse of pavement.

Extremely guardrailed expanse of pavement.
Guardrails are ideal for demarcating the boundaries of parking lots. People ought to use guardrails to demarcate the boundaries of parking lots in more places than they do already.

A streetcorner Dunkin' Donuts facility in downtown SLC.
What a wonderful city. I pushed off from my overhead perch across the street and landed gently on the sidewalk in front of the shop. I entered the building. I purchased and consumed (ate) a glazed chocolate cake donut.

It's fine with me if the sidewalk becomes overtaken by plants but I don't live around here so I shouldn't be the one to decide what happens.

An excellent view upon the street "500 West" in downtown S-L-C.
Like all of the other streets in Salt Lake City with "West" and "East" designations, this street runs north-south. You will have to decide for yourself whether you like that. I am not going to tell you what to think.

Hilarious view of the Salt Lake City urban experience and a long wide street.
To my eyes and mind the city's general overabundance of spaciousness was comical.

It was better to see it from up here: My laughter ended when I went downstairs and began to walk around in the overabundant spaciousness. I got bored!

I boycotted the bridge because it doesn't have a sidewalk. The absence of sidewalks on bridges is one of the things horrible people like about the United States.
