Plate of Shrimp

Ah, yes, another hydrant. One of the earliest ones. Just a pencil sketch of the hydrant you can see from the porch at the summer place. The same one as in that painting I posted a while back. And about a month back, while walking to the train, I came across this:

I grabbed my little traveling camera from my bag and took a couple shots. A worker came running up to me, telling me it was nothing interesting, they had shut off the water. I tried to tell him it was interesting to me, but finally just said "It looks cool." He gave me every indication that he thought I was a kook without actually speaking and walked away. Then I got this shot:

Fans of Repo Man will recall the plate of shrimp phenomenon. And really, this whole post was just to bring up Repo Man, which I loved but probably haven't seen since the 80s. I think I'll add it to my netflix queue.

Hi Lorie,

I really like the close-up with the water draining away.

That is really fantastic photo, as expected before I visit your site. I really look forward to seeing the found images you have composed and thus created.

I wrote some notes on bouillabaisse for you, on that particular posting, and my stomach grumbled when I read your dinner menu.

It is time for breakfast, but I want dinner.

I have never been into New England. I now want to learn more of your cuisine, and come for your autumn.

Hello Lorie,

I wanted to say thank you for your e-additions to the e-world...


I have given you an award here:


No need, though, to do anything at all. I just wanted to thank you publicly.
