What Is It?

A mere US$6.00 to look shiny and new...


High in fiber, but all the additives cancel out its virtuousness...


Black is boring...

Today, I bring you something light and fun. Can you guess what these photos are showing? If you think you know what the first three are, leave your guesses in the comments. I'd love to offer a prize, but I'm at a loss regarding what would be of value to anyone.

Time for a new round of public service ads, I think...

This last photo is one I took at L'Enfant Plaza a week ago. I liked the framing and perspective. Composition aside, though, I despise laziness and littering. Surely a person can hold onto their trash long enough to throw it in a proper receptacle!

The first one took me a few minutes, but carwash, popcorn, umbrella! And I LOVE the umbrella one, by the way. I used to have a boring black umbrella, but that was because I had BRIGHT orange rain boots. When they sprung holes (not helpful in puddles!), I bought new black and white ones and switched to a purple umbrella. They make rainy days a little more fun! It's the little things, right?

Oh, ok...too much hospital food or something! I got the 3rd one, the umbrella. Beautiful shot:) I like these snippets of life.

Cowbark: You're right on all three counts! Good job. I'm going to have to make these harder next time. So, if I offered a prize, what would be a good prize?

Lisa: Thanks! I had fun taking these. If you enlarge the one of the umbrella, you can see the raindrops on the other side.

That's a cheap carwash, Janet! I think I paid $10 last time.

Love the first photo. Hate what the last one shows, for the same reasons you do.

Have a nice and bright weekend! :)

Lara: Excellent! Any particular something you'd like as a prize?


Cowbark: I think I can accomodate that. I was just at the Einstein monument last Sunday. I'll post it on Monday, just for you!


Fénix: It's totally cheap. Normally, I pay $18 bucks to have it washed and vacuumed. This place is at a gas station and the added bonus is, there are a couple of guys with brushes and buckets of soapy water who pre-wash your car before you go into the washer itself. Best $6 car wash ever!
