Outsiders aren't supposed to be looking at this, yet here I was.

Yes of course littering highways is fun and emotionally satisfying.

Nevertheless it is unlawful, so do not do it.

"First, be lawful," remember. Also, everything is a highway.

"Injure/kill a worker," imperative sentence.

"Injure/kill a worker," imperative sentence.
These signs are all over Michigan, but I rarely see any workers I could injure or kill.

I know from my experiences of driving cars around the state of Michigan that "Injure kill a worker! Injure kill a worker!" is a fun and easy-to-remember chant for pas…

Old worn-out sneakers!

Imagine if walls and signs were made of athletic shoe material, then exposed to harsh weather conditions for a long period of time.

I liked this yellow fence, and the view of Highway 86 that this parking lot affords.

This was a good view of one of this kind of sign, a highway numbering sign, in the context of its ordinary everyday Louisiana surroundings.

Very very rustic.

Very very rustic.
The stylized depiction of a blue river gives me the feeling of a "tongue" of water coming to touch me, beneath the brown sun. Welcome to downtown!

Wow I love the way this sign is catching the sunlight.

Wow I'm totally starting to love the way this orange reflective ROAD WORK AHEAD sign is catching the sunlight right now. I think I'm going to love this picture!

Out on the streets with the Terre Haute police!

Out on the streets with the Terre Haute police!
I complained to the officer about men on local road crews blocking sidewalks with their laying-down road construction signs, completely unnecessarily, thereby preventing people in wheelchairs from using the sidewalks.

This picture is from 8/30/11 which I…

I love to dig this kind of effect!, everytime I see an example of it.

I love to dig this kind of effect!, everytime I see an example of it.
If I didn't have to work I'd spend time trying out different kinds of experiments with the primitive photograms effect of doing sun stenciling, whereby grass starts to die when you lay stuff on it. It's okay to do, because our modern-times breeds of engi…

Give me a utility pole, a stop sign, a parking lot, some palms, and some mowed, and I'll torture them into arranging themselves into a super-super-fussy composition.

Definitely a compo! The widette lens of a Canon G10 will illusorily bend straight-rod shapes into gentle curves.

As a temporary and fragile desert city Las Vegas oughtn't to be using its precious last few drops of wate…

A shade-darkened blacktop street to honor Tony Bennett the beloved singer. A view upon the end that the memory of his fake stage-name came to!

He has never yet been the mayor of Las Vegas despite being smart enough that he could easily do the job. There aren't any buildings along his new street yet but the spaces will fill up with something once this economic depression goes away. It is guaran…

Upon the backside of the roadsign are scrawled: Notes about the weather conditions of various days in the winter-spring of the year '07.

It's true. And here I am in Aug '10 getting transported unwillingly back to the Feb-Mar-Apr of an annus horribilis that I absolutely do not want to think about at all, so thanks for nothing whomever. I think people ought to use spiral-bound notebooks fo…
