This week's photos from around Columbia:
Clowning at Tacos to Go
And here's an emaciated devil dog.
Alas, poor Yorick!
Never dance with a creepy clown in the pale moonlight.
This is what happens when you smoke that devil drug - marijuana.
Even this Jack O'Lantern is fully lit.
Looks like someone wanted to park - sign be damned.
Multi-unit birdhouse -
Well, at least one apartment building got built in town.
Glinda the Good Witch?
Abandoned skull in Avenue G
Permit for a retail pharmacy?
Apparently, this is for sale.
(South 4th Street)
Gallery on 4th - now with more gourds
Magical Mystery Tour?
Digging things up at Columbia Crossing
A trench, in fact
A former councilman called the building, "The gift that'll keep on taking."
Many-gloried street signs glorified
When Lowe's is all out of stockade fence
An alternative to those outrageous Comcast bills
At the gazebo in Locust Street Park
And there it is.
Meanwhile, on South 2nd - painted flags - literally on South 2nd
Must be some sort of revisionist history - two original colonies and no states?!
And here, complete with sticker, is a cardinal-shaped birdhouse, big enough to terrify any bird in sight.
Getting their "S" in gear
That's small change these days (but nonetheless acceptable)
Alligatoring in Avenue E
That's strange - This sidewalk on Poplar Street ends here, skips over two front yards, then continues further up the street.
And here it just kind of . . ends.
On the other side of the street it ends but continues at the last house in the block - at the intersection of 5th and Poplar. So, if you walk over the front of someone's lawn to avoid walking in the street, can you be cited for trespassing?
Three flats; therefore, it's in E-flat major
But can you live on a hedge that lives in a hedge?
Let's hope he plugged the meter . . . because - see next photo.
There's the reason.
Too bad he didn't nail this one.
Clean it up!
Tree down on the unpaved section of Heritage Drive, most likely due to last night's horrific winds
Work in progress
Artist at work
Another work in progress
Still another work in progress
Yet another work in progress
And a few submitted photos . . .
Street sweeper barely bypassing that nasty, unattended ditch on the 300 block of South 2nd
There it is - naked in the daylight.
And finally - the former Embassy Hotel - apparently after a fire
