Recess: Paving the Way for Pictures

Recess means we take a break and play; it’s important to do that once in a while.

Doubtless some of you will appreciate pictures of pavement more than others will. Not everyone finds photographing architectural bits like pavements, smokestacks or bridge buttresses to be fascinating (you don’t have to be autistic, but apparently it helps). I take photographs of such odd objects where-ever I travel.

This first was taken on the campus at Kansas State University, in Manhattan, Kansas (US):

This second was taken at the Legoland in Windsor (UK):

This third was taken in Delft (NE). If you don’t get the joke, I was tickled by the fact that I’m standing on a yellow brick road (“Wizard of OZ” joke):

    Wonderful pictures! I was showing some pictures of Joey to his therapist, and she saw I had taken pictures of the brick sidewalk- and she burst out laughing. But the texture was so wonderful!

    I am a shutterbug too.

    You should Photoshop the last one. Make the brick more yellow and change the slippers to either Silver like the book or Ruby like the movie. That would make the joke more intelligible.
