Cellphone Photo of the Day #8

Picture of a stryofoam ice chest.

"This ice chest belonged to Sharon Stone."

I had to get off my bicycle to snap this picture. 

(I didn’t know Sharon Stone was into styrofoam). 🙂

A man walking his dog commented on the ice cooler and said, “That neighbor of mine.  Sometimes he does the darndest things.”

Eileen was surprised to see that I ate the entire middle of this Tartine croissant and all the edges of the sticky bun.  My favorite bits!

From far away it looks as if I'm in a foreign place, but I'm in the good ol' US!

Cellphone Photo of the Day #1

Tiny Christmas Ornament
I must have passed this by a few times. I thought it was dirt on the window sill

Today’s Cellphone Photo of the Day starts at #1 even though I’ve posted numerous cellphone photos on my Facebook page.  Hey, if I am going to post it on Facebook, why not post it here first?

Adding new trash pics on my Facebook page…

I’ve been using my Wall Photos feature on Facebook to post my cellphone pictures of the trash I’ve taken since 2009. It’s easier to upload from there and I just let the photo speak for itself. I’ve called these photos I take randomly the “Cellphone Photo of the Day.”

Hopefully, when I get more chores out of the way, I will re-post them here since it’s my content:


The art/trash photos begin with a photo of Bruce Lee~

Fire hydrant, a la paper mâché

A paper mâché fire hydrant?  Only in San Francisco.  Now, while I was all for these two guys plasting the hydrant on 19th & Alabama in the name of art, I was a little saddened after 5 months that they haven’t cleaned up what they did.   By now, the mâché (á la of wheat paste, Elmer’s glue, water and newspaper) is completely dry.  Ready for anyone to turn it into a mold.

When asked that balmy day in June what they were up to, they nervously replied that they were trying to make a mold of the fire hydrant.  “Very cool I said.”  And, I walked on my way.  That’s what you do in San Francisco, you see, you leave people alone and don’t nose around.

As I walked my dog past them, one of them yelled out, “Hey, you’re not going to nark on us? Right?”  I turned around with my dog patiently waiting for me to continue our walk, “Hells, no.  More power to you for transforming the street into art.” 

But now, since they haven’t been back to unplaster the mold, it’s time to complain:  the fire hydrant’s ability to tap water when needed in a fire has been compromised.  Even though it appears to have some access to the tap, it is completely obstructed by its tightly bonded paper sepulchre.  It seems as if it is rendered…functionless.

But is it art?

Dirty hands

Just don't rub your eyes anytime soon

Took the new car out for a spin and decided to wipe the brake dust off the rims.

Leaves wash ashore a sidewalk like a tidal wave

wave of leaves

Taken yesterday afternoon. 

I’ve noticed something peculiar in my neighborhood.  It appears as if someone is raking or sweeping leaves out of the way of gutters.  For example, the other day, I saw a street gutter clumped with leaves and debris.  A few days later?  Leaves and litter are neatly swept up off to the side. 

I will check back at the above site to see if the same phenomenon has occurred.
