Clarity of light

Hello, and welcome to Which One Was It? day here at the blog.

Look at the photo above, and tell me if you think
1. This was a careful compose-and-wait situation.
2. It pretty much an accident.
3. It was a complete accident.

Declare glory

I surely did like these jaunty curtains at the Dixie Dog in Spur. And check out the lettered Bible verse there in the window!

Pro tip: if you eat there, you and your travel/photography companion can split an order of fries. And you’ll still have some left.

Infinity always gives me vertigo
And fills me up with grace

If having a crush on a town is a thing, then I am pretty sure I have a crush on Spur. I go there often, and always find interesting things (like telephones or swimming pools or mysterious signs.)

On this particular trip, my friend Mary and I stopped for lunch at the Dixie Dog; we sat at the counter, which is how we were able to hear the cook say, when she’d caught up with the lunch orders, that she was going to step outside and smoke “a piece” of her cigarette.

How can you not have a crush on a town when you can hear something like that?
