Unusual Artwork

This artwork was made from small plastic baskets that were painted and glued in place. I really like the way they make shadows and patterns.

Street Recycling

This street trash can was designed with a place for inserting your recyclables-- newspapers, cans, etc. It doesn't take up any more space than an ordinary container, but allows users to be part of the landfill problem in an easy-to-use way.

Renovation at Wayfarers Chapel

The bell tower and cross were being renovated last week for the first time in fifty years. The cross was painted and the carillon and its tower were restored. I was very surprised to see the scaffolding around the tower.

A Different Kind of "Doorway"

Math is the doorway to academic choices for most students. I don't mean that you have to be a mathematician, but knowledge of mathematics expands the career options tremendously. In addition, knowledge and understanding of math enables each citizen to understand the economic policies of her/his government.

November Theme Day: "Doorways"

Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
I love to take photos of doorways. This doorway was set up in a plant nursery. They had plants for sale so that you could decorate your own doorway. I have another idea about doorways, though.
Please check tomorrow's post, too.

This is a tough theme for me since I have to choose from so many different doorways. This luxurious doorway is the entrance to the "Mar'sel" restaurant at La Terranea here in RPV. Please check back tomorrow and Tuesday for two different interpretations of the theme.
