Strange shots from the I-5 Corridor
As promised last week, here are a few pictures from the jaunt down the interstate. What's going on? Click here for an explanation.
The horse tied to a bike rack in Chinatown. For obvious reasons, I'm pretty infatuated with this shot.
The restroom at The Tube. Take note of all the cartoon marshmallow people on the walls.
The mutant cat with the 6.5 toes is the orange one. With a thumb that size he'll be learning to type and/or hitchhike in no time. This is shot from the owner's blog. For a closer, click here.
The icky Lithia water fountains in downtown Ashland. With all those years of green mineral build-up on the sides, they practically dare tourists to go near them. The spot is in dire need of a webcam. I'm guessing that the fountains cause more than a dozen unsuspecting people to gag an hour. The pavement surrounding the podium is covered in spat-up water. This stuff is supposed to be healthy?
Graffiti found at the top of a slide in Lithia Park. Hard-Core-Vallis? Hil-ar-i-ous!
And finally, the over-60 crowd at the park concert. Behind that three? Hundreds and hundreds of elderly people. You'll have to take my word for it. Strangely enough, they weren't staring at a gigantic TV showing an episode of The Price is Right.
Pictures of the Oregon Vortex and the Port-o-Pots of Mystery? On the way, someday. In the meantime, you should read this.
