Bad 1986 to 1988.

Bad 1986 to 1988.
It was wrong of people to spend the years 1986 to 1988 building this, but that's what happened. The building's colors and shape were bad ideas, as were the four little spires on top.

I was aghast on account of its unsightliness, and "Demolish that," I sa…

50-50 of San Francisco crab magnets and Frito Lay corporation.
Frito Lay are room temperature fried things in colorful sacks. Crab magnets are promiscuous people. This was probably the most comfortable Walgreen's I had ever entered.

Unsightly fountain!

Unsightly fountain!
I've done prettier spraywork with a gardenhose in my dad's driveway when I was washing his car.

Who aims the nozzles!, and do they need to be re-aimed by an aesthetician. To my eyes there looks to have been little or no aesthetic consideration given to w…

The plant is definitely the nicest thing around here and I would hate to think of anybody intentionally damaging it.

Splendid view of: The "the fifth street parking garage."
The Worldwide Web isn't giving up the secret of this parking facility's Erection Year, so we're all just going to have to stand here and make guesses. The facility is city-owned. The facility badly dwarfs the tiny traffic signal.

Laughing at a tree from up here.
It's funny because it's deciduous but has grown into a shape we associate with conifers. And because we cannot see the shadow it casts.

That parking lot beyond the sign is LITERALLY CRIMINALLY underutilized in my opinion. The underutilization ought to be criminalized.

Windowblinds too small for their windows.
Venetian blinds are probably the most mistreated windowblinds in the U.S. People associate them with poverty.

Do you remember the old ads on American TV for venetian blinds, the ones that ended with a curly-haired female spokesmodel looking into the came…

Drivethru banking scene of downtown Galveston during an overcast sky condition.
I have always gotten a kick out of seeing the tops of drivethru canopies, gaspump canopies, etc. Ordinarily people aren't supposed to be able to look at the canopies' topsides, nor to spend time thinking about them.

The boxing and unboxing of cabbage.
This unites our understandings of the notions of bald eagles in flight, of cabbages, of bushel measurements, of Florida, of Lake Okeechobee, of freshness, of garbage.

A view toward "Terrace Plaza" from the intersection of Market and Jefferson in downtown Muskegon.
The lamppost-style streetight makes me want to feel elegant as I stroll the area. The pigmented concrete shapes are of the same kind that young people walk upon in cities, toward cafés and gallery openings.

"Terrace Plaza" yonder was erected in 1978 and…
