"Wet streets, alla time wet streets..."

...is a favorite quote from a long-ago parody in MAD magazine. Tonight, it even fits....

I wanted to shoot some pictures tonight. Had a theme picked out and everything. But then, it began to rain. Even worse, my back, which has been hurting all day, finally decided to go completely wacko on me. I barely managed to crawl back into the car and make it home.

But I did get two shots which, minus any sort of theme, I'll post simply because I kinda like "em.

First, the "Indian Room," one of the city's finest seedy dives, has restored its neon sign....



And I had one last shot -- so to speak -- at furthering the "New Art Form" I "invented" yesterday....



That's it. You may resume your regularly scheduled routine now.

Bummer about the back, Scribbs. Hope you feel better tomorrow. :)

Thanks, L&s...I've taken some snake-bite medicine, and it seems to have relieved the pain.

Hi hon, sorry your back is causing you probs! Hope it gets better soon and loved the pics! :)

How'd you back the car up so close to the pool??? I sympathise with the back, hope you feel better fast

MrScribbler said...

kahew -- that's not a pool, it's the street!

I'm sorry you're hurting!! I sure hope this is something that will pass - and SOON!!!

The Indian Room sign is crooked. Then again, it looks like the kind of place that wouldn't care. :-)

*hugs* and alooooooooha!

p.s. THANK YOU for taking off the word verification thing!!! it has been giving me a hell of a hard time!!!

Dang.....maybe I DO need glasses! Us Californians don't know what water looks like on the streets. That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!

MrScribbler said...

Shame, shame, kashew! This was California rain, too!

I like that street shot. I'd probably never go in that place, but it makes a nice picture.

I'm glad I don't have a camera in my car. I'd be spending all kinds of gas money looking for things to shoot.

I wouldn't go into the "Indian Room," either, dal...

But, like so many places, I'm glad it's there and would miss it if is was gone.
