This week’s photo challenge was kind of fun: unusual. That really leaves the door open to a lot of different ideas, doesn’t it? Here are my contributions.

This is a poster in an old weaving mill.. It claims that P. T. Barnum was wrong when he said that there is a sucker born every minute. The company knows its customers won’t be suckered by inferior goods. Keeping quality high means keeping customers, which means keeping jobs. That’s an idea still valid today!
A directional marker pointing the way to various sights around Portland, Oregon, USA. The marker is made of basalt carved into a hefty column, with the brass markers set into it. The height of mountains is listed in feet. Note the marker for Mt. St. Helens, a volcano that erupted in 1980. Its height is listed before and after the eruption.

What’s left of the batteries of a 1912 Detroit Electric Car. We’re still working on the concept one hundred years later.

This is a fun shot. Is it a giant corkscrew moving through a tunnel? No! It’s a wide angle shot of a spiral staircase going up to the top of the Astoria Column in Astoria, Oregon, USA. The column sits on a hill overlooking the city and the Pacific Ocean. The exterior denotes a pictorial history of the area. At the top of the column is a viewing platform that gives you incredible 360 degree views of the area.
Thanks for stopping by!
