The Perseverance of Yellow

A foggy day is a good day to take some photos.

If you ask me.

Failure (Eleven Frames)

In the 1960s, someone thought Lubbock was just the place for an amusement park, so they built one. It was called Rimrock City, and it had staged shoot-outs, a restaurant, a miniature golf course, a zoo, and some other attractions.

It’s been gone for years, although the concrete curbs from the golf course are still there, as are the frames on that ridge that used to hold the letters spelling out RIMROCK CITY. But this is what bothers me about it – was there really not a space before the word “city”? Or did the sign actually say RIMROCKCITY? I sure wish I could remember…

A Static Parade

When I was in college, I drove a Pinto.

For a while, I went out with a guy who drove a Corvette. It was fun to roll around in a town in a car that caused people to not look at you with pity, which was what I was used to.

I kept that stupid Pinto for ten years, which is probably some kind of record. I don’t know what happened to the Corvette guy; I don’t think he was at this car show, though.

Yellow

For various reasons (including, but not limited to) feeling like I’m I a rut, I headed over to the Corvette show, which is not thing I’d normally attend. And took some color photos while I was there. And – and this is a big one – put PEOPLE in the image. I wonder where all this will lead?

The Gist

Why, yes. That graffiti is exactly what you think it is.
