Linda Grashoff's Photography Adventures


Beats Me 2

May 7, 2018

Scroll down to see what I think the purpose of these things might be. And if you are curious about the iridescence, look at my reply to Bluebrightly’s comment on yesterday’s post.



The long story about the possible purpose of these things starts with the following two photographs.


I took the photograph of the centaur and its home on the dumpster before walking from the parking lot into the Oberlin Dollar General store. While I was paying for my purchase, one of the store employees came up to me all grins and asked if I was with “the remodel team.” When I conveyed total puzzlement, she went on: “We saw you taking photographs of the dumpster and wondered if you were with the remodel team; this store is about to be remodeled.” And that’s why a dumpster was parked in the parking lot. Try saying with a straight face that you just like to photograph dumpsters. I had to add that I photograph other things, too.

So, back to what beats me. I wonder if these things are used to move everything out of the store while it is being remodeled. I can’t figure out how they would work, but they are another new addition to the parking area of the store. I could have gone back into the store for clarification, starting with, “I just took some pictures of those . . .” Nah, I didn’t think so. Why push my luck.

Wall with Wires

I did eventually make it to the alleys of downtown Sarasota that Sunday, where I took this photograph and a few others.

The Cover-Up 1

As I wended my way toward the alleys of downtown Sarasota Sunday, I walked past a relatively new condominium building. The first-floor windows—probably destined to let passers-by look at shop wares—were still more or less covered with white plastic on the inside. I liked the folds, rips, and sags of it, and the moisture caught between it and the windows.
