My granddaughter Anna texted, “Doesn’t look too safe” with these three photos she took on Friday.
You might remember Anna’s guest blog of pick up full of mannequin legs and another of a driver brushing his teeth.
I can see her taking the photo in the side mirror reflection.
Thanks for being the guest blogger today.
I had to turn the car around and take a photograph when I read this street name.
Someone was creative in Venango County, Polk, PA.
Do you ever wonder who names the streets?
In the same zip code 16432- Frozen Toe Road, Riddle Street, Hells Kitchen Street, Rainbow Road, Broken Arrow Road, Log Cemetery Road, Fishermans Cove, Gameland.
If you had a time machine, to what period of time would you travel?
Back to the Future
Billboards along the highway in Crestline, Ohio.Landscape
I was not in a car on the highway for this shot.
After I bought the couple of items I needed, I had to drive and turn around and come back so I could photograph this sign. There’s a median in the middle of the road and LOTS of traffic so it was a bit of an effort but I knew I wouldn’t be this way again in the near future.
This location is near the Pennsylvania Turnpike Entrance/Exit.
The motel is old school in appearance and it would be nice to include the sign AND the motel itself but too dangerous to shoot from the highway itself so pulled into their parking lot. There was a lot of truck traffic.
Here is a slice of the motel taken out the passenger window.
A GOOGLE car with a big camera mounted the top, driving down an alley way off of Bryant Street.
Collecting images for Street View? Here is information on how the photos are turned into Street View.
I don’t know. You can sure see them coming. By the time I got the camera to my eye they were going.
Headed in a different direction.
I wonder how much the camera costs that is on the top of the car? I looked up LIDAR camera technology.
Above view is the cropped version of the photograph below.
Well, this was one of them. Seriously hot, too.
Millbrae Way is the name of the alley shown and it’s near the historic marker of the Billy Eckstine home on Bryant Street. Born in 1914-Died- 1993. I just went to look up his grave and he was cremated and ashes given to a family member. There are many famous graves in Pittsburgh.
How I went from the signage at the East Exit Motel, to Google camera car to famous people buried in Pittsburgh I’m not sure so will close and post.
This is Ellis whom I met in Cambridge Ohio. I thought he was selling eggs. Cambridge, OH on Interstate 70 is halfway between Pittsburgh and Columbus.
I’d pulled into a Cracker Barrel to buy a giant set of checkers and use the rest room.
We got to talking, he told me about the price range for the various brands of balls but I didn’t need any golf balls.
Turns out he was from my neck of the woods. West Mifflin, McKeesport, Duquesne- all in the Pittsburgh vicinity.
He will attend a niece’s wedding and unfortunately that’s the same day as his 60th reunion from high school. Hope I got that all correct, sir. Thank you.
To give you a better perspective on his location- above is a crop of the photo below.
