Liquid sunshine is right :) Such a lonely rosebud on the sidewalk.

Great shots! But I do have to tell you that my favorite is the one of the Smart car VP.

You have such a great talent for making ordinary scenes sort of humorous. Love that Smart with the scooters. And the chained chairs are funny too - wouldn't want them to escape or anything. :)

I especially like the Smart car backed up on the sidewalk with its scooter friends!

Jack said...

Once again, you have come up with an interesting collection of sights on your walk. I think of these as vertical collages. Good work again, VP.

A rose in the rain
Chairs on a chair
Scooters make a train
Windows very plain and
a Madonna behind a pane.

Very bad but I couldn't help it.


I love the red rose though

The chairs and Smart are things we would see here too, the Madonna in her niche also...

Traveling Hawk said...

Again a nice series! The chained chairs show us that spring is not here yet, as we hope! But where is a hope...

Each photo is made even more special by the raindrops on the objects.
I love the rosebud.

The scooters make me want to hop on and go for a ride.
