Be Afraid...

CW4. I discovered an incredible sign for the Tee Pee Toy and Novelty Company in an abandoned warehouse, but only had time for a grab shot. So, I thought a spooky treatment was in order. I really need to go back and explore that neighborhood!
This is a wonderful find,l love the happy face of the clown and the balloons.
Great processing it's a happy shot.
A FAV.

Totally creepy! But I agree, go back!
April 26th, 2014  
Fun and fabulous.
April 26th, 2014  
Oooh, I am. Nice one. Great treatment!
April 26th, 2014  
Very cool!

@skippysue Thanks, for the fav, Suze. I guess you are not a victim of "Coulrophobia" - fear of clowns!

@darylo @sansjuan @amandal @soozieqt Thanks, everyone. This whole industrial neighborhood is full of weirdly cool stuff. Too bad it is 90 miles away.
April 26th, 2014  
Awesome sign and a great capture of it.

A fun, fanciful sign. Great happy face on the clown!! Love his 'wild' hair. Great find! NOTE: We're going to be out of touch for the next two weeks. Will catch up with posting when we return. Hopefully..... because five days after we return from Norway, we'll be in the RV heading North. Really looking forward to meeting up with you and Linda, and at least Bruce and his wife. By the way, how's he doing!
April 26th, 2014  
@aglennc He's doing OK. He called here about an hour ago. I'm hoping we can get other 365ers here too when you arrive, so the more advance notice, the better. I have two trips lined up, plus possible surgery for Linda, so I hope we can work this out. It should be fun!
April 26th, 2014  
@aglennc One more thing, Anita,.. I am planning to drop off or drastically cut back 365 in 9 days at the end of my second year, so here is my email address. Please keep in touch. I would really like to make this meeting happen! idbearlakers@msn.com

I surely hope so too. It would be great fun. As it is, Montpelier is the final "planned" stop on our trip, on our way home. We will be coming from Yellowstone. Plan to stay there several days. So our schedule will be pretty flexible then too. I have your email address and can contact you days or longer of approximate arrival. You can tell me yes or wait, or "forget it" (Hope not the latter! -- We'll have peanut brittle with us too!) Surely hope LInda's surgery isn't major, and so glad to hear Bruce is doing OK.
April 26th, 2014  
Now that is an interesting sign. Leave for your direction in less than two weeks now!!
April 26th, 2014  
This is such a fun find. I love it and hope you get to go back. Reading above and my husband does not care for clowns, I think they are really cool. Maybe all those visits to the Cow Palace when I was little to see the circus. I finally packed away all but one that is not creepy to him. FAV By the way I hope you stay on in some capacity and send my best wishes for your wife in regards to having surgery.

@rvwalker LOL...Ross no I love Clowns. :)
April 26th, 2014  
Fav - I love the drawing and the colours - wish I could draw like that!
April 26th, 2014  
Super colours.
April 26th, 2014  
Great find Ross. I have to admit clowns can creep me out sometimes! I'd be curious to see this before your special spooky treatment. I will miss your wonderful shots as well as your much appreciated comments if you cut back on 365. Of course you must do what's best for you and Linda. Sending positive thoughts her way!
April 26th, 2014  
@libertylady Have a safe trip, Alice. I'm sure we will find a way to get together over the summer. I'm sure you have my email address.
April 26th, 2014  
@darsphotos Thanks for the fav, Darlene. Nothing is set yet for Linda's surgery.
April 26th, 2014  
Clowns are scary! Cool shot Ross.
April 26th, 2014  
@rvwalker I don't but does your photo club have a website or Facebook page? I bet I can round up some interested as several from our photo club are going back to Logan this summer.
April 26th, 2014  
@quietpurplehaze Thank you for the fav, Hazel. I can't draw either, so photos need to be my substitute.
April 26th, 2014  
@libertylady Here's my email: idbearlakers@msn.com. My personal web site is www.hisandhersphoto.com and there is a link on the left for the camera club. Please keep in touch, Alice.
April 26th, 2014  
@rvwalker BTW, I hope it is drastically cut back and not drop off this site. I think a lot of people would miss you. I hope Linda does not have to have that surgery.
April 26th, 2014  
@libertylady Thanks for the kind words, Alice. I suspect I will post occasionally, but who knows? Nothing is definite for Linda yet.
April 26th, 2014  
@soboy5 @ivan @michaelelliott Thanks, everyone. It has been fun reading the pro-clown and anti-clown comments.
April 26th, 2014  
@mccarth1 Thank you, Kerry. Linda has had a hard time for the past few years, and while nothing has been set yet, I need to be able to take care of her. I can't begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed your photos and comments.
April 26th, 2014  
Just read through some of your comments - hope all goes well for your wife. Hope you'll post when you can, enjoy your pictures.
April 26th, 2014  
Fun shot and treatment! I hope you know that my thoughts and prayers will be with you both as your wife Linda has surgery. Good luck and thanks for your wonderful advice and friendship. We need to have another photo shot outing when she gets feeling better!
April 26th, 2014  
Great find and totally creepy. You capture such a variety of things. Not sure that I liked what I read about you dropping 365.
April 26th, 2014  
Bob
Nice find.
April 26th, 2014  
Nice find and processing.
April 26th, 2014  
Fun capture.
April 27th, 2014  
@kbird61 Absolutely, Kay. Maybe when Alice gets here you can meet with her and come up to a Sharp Shooters meeting. You are on our email list, so you should hear about our occasional field trips. Nothing is definite on Linda's surgery, but it is probably inevitable. Thanks for your prayers.
April 27th, 2014  
@ivan @tesssa @bobhuegel @anazad511 @moxy Thanks, everyone. 365 has been great, but it will be time to move on soon.
April 27th, 2014
