The weird tiles layout depicts light-gray avians in flight, zoomed-way-in-upon until their pixels are huge, each birdshape subtly different from the next, except for a couple-few which have identical mates.

She is a stockphoto with huuuge pixels, on a featureless spread of grass across the street from the "Federal Building."

The crinkled-up piece of paper reminds me of ancient memories pre-internet of the uncountably numerous days when I needed to dry out a…

I needed to waaay way super-reduce the saturation in order to even be able to see it!, but there it is, you can see where the dirt got splashed onto the bottom of the wall during a heavy rainstorm.

It is trees that are what will lead us into finding ways to learn how to develop personal appreciations for these kinds of architectural surfaces.

This windowless wall is in downtown Burlington, North Carolina, and here's what it looks like on an approx 95° F afternoon. The large shade tree has got an ecologically commensal relationship to the wall, in that it needs the wall's reflected heat to sur…

"Disgruntled Tyco trial jurors return to deliberations today" ... "Four IPOs scheduled as momentum grows" ... "Workers pay for travelers' low fares" — It was totally boring!, and I don't particularly like to remember back upon '4 anyhow. I am ongoingly g…

This is in downtown Burlington, North Carolina, and I liked the area because it seemed so real or genuine somehow.

But prior to setting off on my tourism visit to Burlington, I 100% dipshittedly failed to do the minimal research that would have led me to…

A new staircase downtown, to launch you up the dirt embankment, onto the streetlevel and beyond.

A new staircase downtown, to launch you up the dirt embankment, onto the streetlevel and beyond.
Good idea to give people an alternative to scrambling up that dirt, and sliding back down it, esp. on rainy days. The plantlife along the bottom of the embankment are intended to stabilize the soil. The new steps will look whiter & brighter once that wh…

You're supposed to kill-your-own-meat at the AT&T concertina wire, and then old Stavro's'll cook it up for ya.

Naaah I'm just kidding that's not what happens. The razorwire's only for making coleslaw, supposedly.

Corp logoes [sic] look all the more sinister when they're glaring at you from behind weaponry-fitted fencings. AT&T's message to people is: "You're go…

Noise & exhaust of barrelling semi trailerload of bacon strips & scrambled eggs with buttered grits & buttered biscuit.

Noise & exhaust of barrelling semi trailerload of bacon strips & scrambled eggs with buttered grits & buttered biscuit.
LITERALLY TONS OF TONS OF AMERICANS need semis for nearly their every bite and chew and swallow of densely rich foodstuffs, but during their ingestions ("sittings") they seem hardly ever to think about the noises and smells of trucks and truckers, as part…

My idea for a U.S. smalltown business-name is: "Anyways." Don't anybody steal my idea!

If anybody in charge is reading this, I'd like to see a bed of orange-&-yellow marigolds in woodchips, to separate the sidewalk from the parking spaces.

I had the entire Category: Musicians from North Carolina to select from, but the only tapes I felt like listening to were by Nina Simone, who appears to have gotten the hell out of North Carolina as quickly as she could. I listened to her tapes and thoug…

Ophthalmologists dislike optometrists but for now let's set all that aside how about.
This is True True True: If you travel around the U.S. a bit, you'll begin to notice that there was a wave of construction of standalone optometry-eyewear shoppes in the nation's smallish-sized cities in the years circa 1980. The ones of these that still…
