You gotta do something while waiting for luggage to emerge from the bowels of the airport onto the baggage carousel. In my case, after choosing just the right spot, I take photos of the carousel. 🙂 Sally’s Black and White theme for the third Monday of the month seems like the perfect place for this shot. We’re making 12+ hour trip today from Philadelphia to Chicago, but we’re driving, so our luggage is all with us and flies free, just like it does on Southwest. Yes, that’s a shameless plug for my favorite airline.
During the Tour de France, the routes are heavily decorated with a variety of decorations. Of course, bicycles figure heavily and, as yellow is the color of the jersey, the “maillot jaune”, worn by the winner at the end of each stage and, of course, at the end of the race, many yellow bikes are seen. This one would be a bit uncomfortable, to say nothing of not having gears, and how long would the rider’s legs have to be to reach the pedals? Odd, indeed.
Sometimes these things just pop into my head. 🙂
Is that Norm, shogun of Thursday Doors, on the right-hand door of this rather elegant piece of furniture from the Chicago Institute of Art? Perhaps not, but he does host one of the most enjoyable weekly challenges in blogdom. He is, however, a benevolent ruler, so if you have some door photos to share, please head over to his blog to link up with the rest of the troops.

“Against the Odds” is the theme for this week’s challenge and I think you’re unlikely to find a crossing sign like this very often. Yes, all of these were present in the area where the narrow French road twisted through a small farm. Looks a bit like a fairy tale illustration to me or a child-as-Pied-Piper sign.
I’d like to mention the editing for this shot, but as it was done a few months ago on my iPad, I don’t recall. You’ll just have to enjoy it without further edification. 🙂
