Alright now look carefully: In front of the Wendy's sign there is a lightpole. Now see how I carefully composed the picture so that the top of the lightpole wouldn't touch the bottom of the ROADSIGN GANTRY. I am very proud!

Using a bridge!

This gets people across ("acrossed") the Mississippi River.

This cantilever bridge was installed in 1929 and continues unto this day to complement the sleepiness and unwealthiness of the lightly-populated region surrounding it.

These ramps are more appealing than other kinds of downspouts. All of the waters from the rooftop get accumulated into a waterfall for the flowers to drink up.

I could feel the crosscurrents of the South and Midwest clashing here and making a mess. Recent weather had wetted the dirt. The historic porch at the left says ALEX'S FEED AND SEED.

Pancakes and french fries with treeleaves and water.
This is bleak and grim; the food is ruined. Open-close styrofoam food trays are funny-looking from certain perspectives, their lids bobbing with every passing breeze.

This is what I came to downtown Ashland Kentucky to see I suppose; anyone probably cou…

Trudging to CVS again.
There at the right, I flipped open the dumpster lid to help the picture. The word "pharmacy" is interrupted by one of the blue escutcheons at the tops of the downspouts. The interruption doesn't hurt anything because once you've decided to clutter up yo…

Sand dune landscape of the construction site of an "O'Reilly Auto Parts" biz, across the street from an existing "Advance Auto Parts" biz.
The U.S. is weird and embarrassing!, viz:

Advance Auto Parts: 455 Washington Ave., Huntington, WV 25717

But I enjoyed looking at the construction site's sand in the winter sunshine. The cons…

For all of you whose Earthly Purpose is to spend your days looking up pictures of fire hydrants on the internet, here's a 1983 Waterous for ya.
I'm not an internet fire hydrant aesthete so I don't have any opinions about whether the '83 Waterouses represent the end of the good old days or the beginning of a bad era, but it's probably pretty predictable that most of the internet fire hydrant aesth…

"We'll have you voted out if you can't get these powerlines buried," the dainty American rich crying that their aesthetics are being brutally violated by utility poles.
The new depression has finally halted the U.S. powerline burial drive and personally I'm glad of it, esp. on sunny winter days. Supposedly I'm antiprogress, according to schemers.

A picture of the noticeable differential between the respective widths of the Tanglez storefront and the Tanglez awning.
The awning's width was matched to that of the balcony upstairs. Tanglez was named in honor of the act of forcibly and eye-wateringly breaking up some poor kid's hair-tangles with a hairbrush or comb. Ouch!

The breeze in which this abandoned McDonald's's cautiontapes are fluttering is that of the propulsive flatus being given off by the happy customers of the shiny new replacement McDonald's a coupla blocks away.
