Ripped Off


I am always on the look out for something to photograph.

We were at a set of lights yesterday waiting for the 'light' to change,
and I noticed this lamp post to my right.
There were only the remnants of a poster that appeared to have been ripped off.

    1. Thanks Louise. If I see 'potential', I try to bring it to the surface.

  3. You have a vision for the beauty in the mundane. I like that Jim! I wonder what was on that poster...?

    1. Me too, Keith! A 'before and after' would have another post altogether.
      I like to keep it simple and have an eye at the ready for things that can be easily be missed.

  4. Good Morning, Jim! Good portrait of an object being used and abused. I spotted that nail head right away. I'm sure that if the utility company that erected the pole had intended this use, it would have made a portion of its length sturdier. People don't care if they use property that's not theirs - shows what is happening all over the world in many different ways. It's a symbol, Jim, of disrespect.

    1. I never noticed that nail, Sharon. You writers are one for details....good eyes!
      I have no problem with people using these poles to advertise upcoming events. so long as they remove them when the event is over. Most do, some don't.

    1. Margie, thank you. I see what I see and if others like what they see that is a bonus too.
      A good weekend to you as well.

  6. Staples, tacks, and poster remnants on lamp posts and utility poles drive me up the ever-loving wall. Thanks for turning this one into art. I'm much calmer now.

  9. There is something interesting to photograph no matter where you are. You just need to 'see', which you clearly do! I like your artistic touches to this image. It pops right out of the page.
