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

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.

Cigarettes and candy locked up tight.
The stacks of newspapers inside the building absorb moisture from the air, keeping the cigarettes and candy fresh without need for additional climate control.

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.

Public art idea: a rock on a column for plaza seating.
But wait, it is more than a tasteful decoration: The sculpture is Asteroid Landed Softly by Kazuo Matsubiyashi, completed 1993. It is a sundial. Its timetelling gnomon casts a shaft of light (as opposed to a more typical shadow-casting gnomon). The seatin…
