City Pumpkins and Bicycles


Lots of people head to the farm stand or the farmer’s market or even the Giant Eagle to get a pumpkin.

A bit rainy today but what a colorful surprise to see pumpkins on display on Carson Street in the South Side. School had a day off for the observance of Yom Kippur so I made good use of a midweek vacation day.   I was on my way to see my printer, Tom, so couldn’t stop but swung around and parked briefly, got out and crossed the street.  The bus with the bicycle was a bonus in one of the shots.  I liked the double yellow lines and the bumper converging and the repeat of the bicycle on the bus AND in front of the Hardware Store.  Next time I am going in the hardware store but I had a lot of errands to run so didn’t make time today.  Next time!

  7. Great pair of photos, Ruth, but that True Value’s garden center needs a little work.
