This week, Mary of Traveling Hammer suggested the topic "INCONGRUOUS: Meaning: Out of place, ridiculous, inconsistent, contradictory" I encourage you to go and see everyone's contributions here!
I live in a city with MANY strip malls - the bane of individualism. However, we do have our share of incongruity, where you have to wonder what the landlord was thinking when he assigned the spaces.
To the left, a gym, to the right a liquor store - 2 doors more to the right is a donut shop...Same strip mall - Beauty College on the right, Paint store on the left - really one in the same, no?On the left an earthquake preparedness shop, on the right a ceramic painting place - and I KNOW they don't use any of that Quake Putty there...Golf ball in an abandoned lot - not anywhere close to a golf course.Beautiful tree shot from same abandoned lot, at the back of a parking lot where likely no one will enjoy it.And the next few are all in the parking lot of my grocery store, and every time I see this it makes me wonder. From the far left, McDonald's, Dairy Queen, Papa John's Pizza, and in the middle of this strip mall - MediFast (a weight loss place).From the left, starting with MediFast, Subway Sandwich Shop, and Taco Bell. Seriously, 5 places in a row, only 12 parking spaces right in front, and they put MediFast in the middle?This is the other end of that same paring lot with Back Forty Texas BBQ and Papa Murphy's Take-n-Bake Pizza. Well I was also planning on going for the restaurants next to veterinarians, but I know another Shooter hit that a few weeks back with Outdoor Food theme. I hope you all enjoy the weekend!
