Glass work

 

This is the same out-of-business from yesterday. I always like the mixture of glass textures on this 3×3 grid at the front entrance.

Winners never quit

Winners never quit: it says so right there on the restaurant wall.

Also: the restaurant has gone out of business.

Ah…irony.

…and never the twain

The fun thing about big event centers is that sometimes scheduled events may not always exactly align. A fancy fundraising event was scheduled just across a walkway from the tattoo expo, and I guess these drapes and fence were supposed to prevent any overlap.

But I think we all know that there was some degree of crossover between the two activities.

A wide range of options

Last August, I got a tattoo on my leg, to cover up the scar from knee-replacement surgery. I hated the scar, which made me feel really old since knee-replacement is sort of an old-person’s thing. I am aware that the tattoo is far more visible than the scar, and that my logic could be considered a bit flawed. But it makes me feel better about the whole situation.

And it gave me the cred I needed to head over to the local tattoo expo the other day.

I can’t explain my recent need to photograph people, though.
