Conversation has ceased

I guess there’s nothing left to talk about – the chairs aren’t facing each other, the light fixture has fallen down, and the coffee pot is empty.

Beat ’em

An abandoned school spirit sign doesn’t send the message that it was intended to, does it?

How to get noticed

The population of this town is about 1,600 people. When we got there, we didn’t see anyone driving along the main street. Or any of the non-main streets. But then, when we stopped so I could get photos of this lovely old gas station, approximately 125%* of the town’s population drove by, very slowly. No one stopped to ask me what I was up to, but the Patient Spouse noted that all of them stared at me as they crept passed.

What once was shall be again

The modifications are falling away, letting us see how things used to be.

Unleaded (with bonus bird)

The gas-pump soldiers stand ready. But it’s going to be a long wait since the place is out of business.

And, in the meantime, pigeons coo and swirl all around. And, in one case, get caught in the image.
