Streetwalkin' Monday

by Oldbabe October. 06, 2008 1543 views

In case you haven't been following our blogs, my friend Queen911 [] and I have started packing our lunch on Mondays and Wednesdays. Then we take turns driving each other to a surprise destination where we walk the streets, take photos and eat lunch. We post our favorite 7 pics of the day plus vantage point (where we sat to eat lunch and take most pics).

I still haven't learned to check my battery before we go off on a photo adventure so I didn't have many pics to choose from in order to get my quota today. (Duh! And to believe I have always told my children repeatedly to “plan ahead”). So I really didn't have a fav 7 or a vantage point! I only took about 10 photos before the camera died. 8-(

The corner of 2nd and Gaines where we were streetwalking today.

A lady found one of the benches a nice place to read and eat lunch.
We took our pictures and ate our lunch on a bench opposite to hers.
My battery died before I got a picture of this nice little brick circle with 4 benches.

German American Heritage Center []
Used to be the Standard Hotel - or Whoretel as we called it when in high school.

I love this building. I'd like to have a round area with windows in my house. I'd hang lace curtains there.
I also liked the guy sweeping up in front and the other guy just watching.

Boarded up windows and doors; rickety railings.

View to the east.

We need to live nearer to each other...the "whoretel" shows me your sense of humor is twisted enough so that we'd keep pace with each other. Love the b/w of the building--nicely done even with your dead battery. Were you a Girl Scout? If you were, were you asked to leave? :0)

I like the picture of the German Heritage Centre with the brick contrasting against the colour of the windows.

Very nice. Again we saw different things. It's like opening a present when I see your blog. Never know what I'm going to get.
