Coney Island Ride, carousel poles, birthday candles. Hair in a twist. Lighthouse in Florida. A gnarled tree.
More Effects of Elements and Time
WEATHERED appeals to me cause I’m finding a lot of photos in the archives to post.
Vintage Toy Garbage Truck from the 1950’s
Larimer School, Pittsburgh PA-
Okanogan, Washington and surrounding area-
orchard heaters no longer used, and apple boxes, an abandoned school house with an updated roof and a No Hunting sign posted on the building with the old vinyl couch out front.
Your Handwriting Reveals your Character sign in Coney Island-
-Bakery, Drug Store and the Lunchbox Diner* (see below for how it used to look) in Manhattan– New York City-
Quinwood, West Virginia-
Conneaut Amusement Park- Pennsylvania-
Roller Skating Rink- McKeesport PA-
Train in Alaska
Lego Store New York City
New York City-Coney Island.
Who knew that I must photograph every sign I encounter?
The trick is to cull the signs and show the most interesting.
BUT I am astounded at how I am attracted to them.
As I kept exporting the variety of signs from different locales, I remembered my travels and who I was with and what we were doing.
Just being out and about I see a ton of signs.
I am going to me more mindful of my capturing them and figuring out why I press the shutter button.
Guess I read them and document what I read.
A sampling of signs-
Chinatown New York City
Greenwich Village NYC
Coney Island NY Sign
Brooklyn Botanic Garden
The perfect twist ice cream cone as suggested by this week’s challenge eluded me. These photos are taken today expressly for TWIST.
Steve and I went over to the South Side to the Dairy Queen where one of my students had a shift Saturday night.
I asked for a small twist cone! and this is how they make them on Carson Street. Waaaaah! It’s a half and half.
There was no licorice to be found so I had to think of another TWIST specifically for this week’s challenge.
Twist on a medicine bottle!
I saw TURN and an ARROW but no word TWIST what I was looking for….. a TWIST CAP! childproof? None to be found in the medicine chest here.
The leftover sock yarn ball has a twist to the strand! Finding a twist in the house
the base of the red glass goblet ( my friend Joanne knit me this patriotic dishcloth)
For the final image for TWIST
a couple of hanger tops.
and a couple from the archives Coney Island Ride
and a student made this scarf in knitting activity period this year
Is this a twist or a swirl?
You’ve seen some of these if you’ve been a follower for awhile.
Some favorite reflections. The weekly challenge prompted me to continue to search the archives for a couple of reflections I wanted to share.
Swimming at Ohio State Natatorium
Blue jeans in the glass of the Penguins exhibit at the Columbus Zoo
From the subway on the way to Coney Island

Hope the dripping faucets keep the pipe flowing, too.
Rob, good to hear it’s 81 in Florida today.
Check out the flip flops in the photo above. A few more months. Unless you are Rob!
Oh my- there were too many to choose from for Window. My post today is WINDOW with an S- plural.

Too too many window pictures and this is with culling.
I photograph them a lot.
thanks to Cheri Lucas Rowlands for this fun challenge. You were right about a lot of possibilities.
Apparent horizon or visible horizon. The line where the earth meets sky.
We’ve got plenty of buildings and trees that block the clean line around here.
First up – Coney Island Horizon
Another clean line separating earth and sky in Cumberland Ohio at The Wilds
Charleston West Virginia Horizon
New York City Horizon
And a vertical taken in traffic at the red light Pittsburgh PA
Okay, that’s a pretty good sampling of horizons.
Starting to get too many choices to put up. I’m stopping now and going to bed. I thought about going into an external hard drive and finding British Columbia or Okanogan WA but it’s late.
