Light up horse-and-buggy in the mulch.

Light up horse-and-buggy in the mulch.
1) The horse is failing.

2) The buggy's passenger area contains a decorated Christmas tree, and that is not a historically accurate representation of the use of horses-and-buggies. The decorators' nostalgia needs to be corrected, raised to the standard h…

Old tired mailboxes and BVILDINC.

Old tired mailboxes and BVILDINC.
These are for stamped mail only and metered mail only, respectively, so don't be stupid and use the wrong one.

Here was the VNION BVILDINC, the Union Building, erected in 1902, a time when it was thought that buildings ought to be made to resemble plants…

The thing reaches out its stubby red arms, to hug onto your face forever. It wants to be your lamprey.

It was easy enough to imagine that I could see its soft & warm central dome lifting & falling as though breathing; and that I could hear it whispering: "My sweet & buttery filling is still delicious."

The "Captured Moments" lighthouse's photocollage has badly faded unfortunately.

The "Captured Moments" lighthouse's photocollage has badly faded unfortunately.
It has pretended to shine on plenty enough gravel and asphalt since the civic pride dinner at which I assume it was unveiled too many years ago, and is due to be retired in my opinion.

I think that even if a freshly-printed photoillustration were to be…

Just exactly enough of the modernism decorations on the cinderblock wall. Just small gentle touches' worth of them.

I like what the creators did but I'm also glad that they stopped when they did. It is very easy to go overboard with this kind of stuff and to end up with too many of the small protruding triangles.

Some Motel 6 Dubuque Flowers.

Some Motel 6 Dubuque Flowers.
Classily midwestern! Plastically potted in a terra cotta colour, and planted upon the grey-painted sidewalk next to the blacktopped parking lot. The paint disguises the old pittedness of the concrete. Clearly this aint no grave spray.

Creative freedom of blue-orange "ART" doorway of shape of building, and 3 picnickers.

Creative freedom of blue-orange "ART" doorway of shape of building, and 3 picnickers.
Can I maybe start to see where some kind of a slanty-roofed section became old & useless & was at last detached & disposed of?, or is that an optical illusion. I love the idea of a picnic in the grass, way away from exhaust fumes and parking lots.

The motorbike in there is looking sharp and I maybe should have spent some time trying to figure out what kind it is, I love the sounds of motorsports.

What are those languidly-walking figures, with the dangling pinkish seashells, painted onto the L &…

To celebrate Cinco de Mayo, dancing nylon tube decoration gets rented in Mexican flag colours.

To celebrate Cinco de Mayo, dancing nylon tube decoration gets rented in Mexican flag colours.
Roadside attention-getter rollicks all day among the street festival turnout. In this particular setting, the thing seemed generally to be regarded as an obstacle to be stepped past, rather than as an attraction to be drawn to. But I am certain that such…
