Phoneography Challenge: My Neighborhood

13 Mar

I don’t have an iPhone, an Android, or a smartphone that collects something called Apps. I’ve got, according to others, an old-school phone. Circa 2009. No touch screen, just a screen. It’s an LG phone that is partly made of “post-consumer recycled plastics.” I was trying to be Eco-friendly. You know, care about the environment and even though it’s all beat up and hanging on for dear life the camera still works.

So I present a small glimpse of my neighborhood via phoneography.

 

This is what I see in a typical morning or afternoon, but it's often accompanied by people walking their dogs some of course without the much needed plastic bag. They think just because their dog is small the poop is invisible ... but you better believe that it still exists and it still smells when it gets on your shoe.

My neighborhood market, which sadly has a small parking lot and is usually crowded any time of day.

This is the park where I hang out with my kids, and where the Mommy & Me Mafia try to give me the stink eye.

My local Regal Beagle. This is where I usually want to go after an encounter with the Mommy & Me Mafia, but they frown on bringing preschoolers and toddlers.

But I usually end up at my neighborhood hole-in-the-wall Thai place where pad thai and prad prik king are my usual choices.

Then I drop by my usual Lottery buying place where I hope last week's ticket brings me some awesomeness. It hasn't happened yet.

Once I see the Actor's Studio with the people talking to themselves, making dramatic gestures with their hands and pacing back and forth I know I'm only a few minutes away.
