Laura bought me a couple of cheap toy cameras for Christmas this year. One of them was the Lomographic Society's Pop 9, a little 35mm pocket camera with nine lenses in a 3x3 matrix. Why would you want nine lenses taking the exact same picture on one frame of film? Hell if I know. I was skeptical of its utility, but I have to say, I'm actually pretty pleased with the way the photos from my first day out with the camera turned out. If one photo of a goofy sign is good, nine photos is nine times as good, right?
Goofy sign number one. I could tell you where this is, but it would spoil the mystery.
Sunrise was very pretty this morning, perhaps a bit too cloudy, but I think it works well in this photo taken in the empty lot between the bank and the drug store.
Ice cream's not enough for Carvel; they need rides to draw the kiddies, too.
This sign was in the window of the auto parts store.
Stepping into this barber shop was like walking 40 years into the past. Wood paneling, cheap cuts, old guys, sports memorabilia on the walls. I went here a few times as a teenager. I got my most recent haircut here. I liked it a lot. I still have it.
Sadly, the ambience of this place is all gone now. The barber shop shut down last week and moved across the street to a brand new location (hence the "NG", part of the sign saying they were "MOVING"). There used to be a drug store across the street, but it went out of business several years ago. Last year, someone bought the property and redeveloped it, adding a second story for apartments and dividing the space up into a lot of smaller shops. They probably brought all their old stuff across the street, but I just can't see it being the same. I'll find out soon enough; I need to get another haircut soon.
Really! Want proof?
