The Graffiti Building

This building is on the campus of the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts; previously it was where the City of Lubbock stored their graffiti-removal equipment.

On a related note, I sure do like irony.

Three Toilets

This amusement park has been around forever.

When I was a little kid, my parents took their sixth-grade Sunday School class there. One of the kids threw up on a ride. That’s practically my only memory of the place.

I drive by there every couple of years, and this time I saw three portable toilets. Not that they made me think of throw-up kid or anything like that.

The solar lights had been moved out of the way of the mower. But they were still intent on doing their job. Except for the two on the left, who are slackers.

My photography afternoons would be pretty uneventful if people put their stuff away when they were done with it…

Cast Away

My friend Gerald and I meet for coffee three times a year – at Christmas and on our birthdays. We’re running behind this year: our Christmas meet-up was in February and my March birthday had been long gone when we met at the end of April. It was an unseasonable cold day, when we finally did meet, and I had to park down the block from the coffee place because it looked like everyone in town was in need of a hot beverage to get them through the day. A normal person* would have walked on the sidewalk to get back to the coffee shop.

Anyway, I saw this in an alley between where I parked and where I was meeting Gerald.

*So, not a photographer. That’s usually my main way to define a “normal” person. And also a “normal person” wouldn’t have brought along a camera.
