LA is full of interesting doors.  Yes, there really is a door here, right below the obi.

To what shall
I liken the world?
Moonlight, reflected
In dewdrops,
Shaken from a crane’s bill.

Literal: expressed by letters.  In this case, the sentiment is also expressed, I am compelled by my inner grammarian to add, incorrectly.  It should read “Fake happiness is the WORST kind of sadness” (unless there are only two kinds).  I’m also quite sure this isn’t a quote from the fiddling Nero, but I think the sentiment worthy of sharing and it was a fun find as we wandered the streets of Philadelphia last year.

Debbie at Travel with Intent hosts One Word Sunday (as well as Six-word Saturday–what is it with the number thing?), but she set us a hard one this week.  Looking forward to seeing other interpretations.

After our visit it Tony Packo’s in Toledo, Ohio, I took a quick shot of this bit of street art from the car while we were stopped at a light.  (I was the passenger.)  And yes, I like Abba.

Not all street art encompasses a door. But this creation in Urbana, Illinois blends door into art seamlessly.

The day after a baby shower for my friend in Urbana, Illinois, we spent the morning having coffee and relaxing. On the way to my parked van, I spotted a bit street art on the back of this building.

I’m in the midst of hockey mania.  The first round of the Stanley Cup finals is drawing to a close with our Chicago Blackhawks in a seventh win-or-go-home game, so I’m occupied with trying to help them win.  Not much time to do an in-depth post.

But as we enjoy the end of a day of summer-like sun and temperatures just ahead of a much cooler day tomorrow, I thought I’d share a shot of this lovely mural on the side of a building in Hillsdale, Michigan, part of a project to bring murals to the town.  I’d say that as bricks in the wall go, these are winners!

It’s the final week of 2015 and as it’s also a fourth Monday, that means it’s time at Sally’s for Challenger’s Choice.  My choice is street art from the subway in Philadelphia.  It’s not what we usually think of as street art–art done directly on a building or other place.  But someone created this ad, so it is art, subway art in this case  At any rate, just enjoy.

If you like to take photos with a non-traditional camera, such as a phone or an iPad, we’d love to have you join in.  Or we welcome you to just take a look at what everyone else is doing. Sally also has links each week to photography sites, so pop over for a look.

I hope your 2015 was wonderful, but either way, I pray you have a 2016 filled with blessings and thanks so much for spending time on my blog.  I always appreciate you and your comments.
