That street sign pisses me off. I’ve shot this place poorly so many times, and this looked like I’d finally gotten it right … then I noticed the street sign.

Back to the drawing board, I guess.

    Ah, there’s always an ugly streetsign poking in to the otherwise lovely vista of our lives, don’t you think? x

    Nah, the street sign works. It’s all part of the location, the sense of place. And Champion is such a good name for a street.

    Love this shot. I drove by here last week when I was in town and took note, but didn’t take a photo. Columbus is such an interesting place; I wish I’d been in more of a photo-taking mood when I was there.

    Thanks, Ralph! Columbus is interesting? I don’t hear that often.

    It’s just too bad we can’t ever have a breakfast here, Angie. Npe, I don’t think I even knew that the original Resch’s was there! Which corner?

    Oh, the street sign is excellent. It might not have worked as well with another street name, but a boarded up, run-down restaurant building on Champion… great piece of irony. Better still if the sign said Skid Row, but I don’t think that is a very common streetname.
