This is why I run with a camera
It is a little camera, it fits it my pocket.
If it were a big camera, I could not run with it.
This might look better with a bigger camera, but it caught my eye.
First, the ad on the phone booth for Construction safety week, then the construction site behind it. Then I saw the ad for 1-800-GOT-JUNK. All in one spot.
Then I ran past the Meineke Shop that I saw last week. I was gonna just get a close up picture of the muffler family. But a friend of the owner offered to take my picture with it. He told me it is the second one to stand on that spot. The original was sold. I was so happy to here that it was not stolen. He said the neighborhood if full of good people, nobody would steel it. I told the guy that his shop should be on the Home Page for Meineke, not the bland suburban storefront shops.
Then, I ran around Green-Wood Cemetery (be be careful, if you click the link to Green-Wood, you get dead people music).
I noticed that it has a license plate. A Closer look showed that it was an historical marker. It is a New York State Historical Cemetery. Are the 3354 other historic cemeteries in New York State? That's alot. Or maybe there are 3355 historic people buried there. Whatever...
