Now, for the second day in a row of trekking around town … I present my trekking adventure entitled STREET SCENES. I call it that because each photo either tells a story or reminds me of a book, play or movie.
SCENE 1 — THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS
This photo of a seven-foot tall Missouri Thistle immediately reminded me of John Wyndham’s 1950s sci-fi novel OK, it was also a play, movie, television movie and even twice as a TV mini-series.Trivia fact … I never had to look up to a flower to take its picture before this one.
SCENE 2 – TWO CHAIRS IN SEARCH OF STREET CHARACTERS.
SCENE 3 – THERE JUST HAS TO BE A STORY IN THIS SCENE!
SCENE 4 – BERLIN-PLATZ
That was the name for this tree-shaded street now filled with mansions. It was named for the home town of the German immigrants who originally settled there when they arrived in the US in the early 1800s. The name only survived up until the start of WWI when it was renamed for an American general. Sauerkraut was renamed Liberty Cabbage, and all the other streets with German names disappeared about the same time.
SCENE 5 – FRACTURED REFLECTIONS
SCENE 6 – PLOT FOR A HORROR FILM WAITING TO HAPPEN
And that’s my Street Scene Trek for today.
BTW, Mlle. Renee asked me to repost this message for her …
