I was just on a regular ride to the grocery store to pick up a few items for dinner, then to the post office. While on those errands, I saw the parking lot lamp shown above. That reminded me of this month’s challenge.
The red pole and red casings are telltale signs of Target parking lot lamps, but Target closed its store in MY Town about four years ago. The property is being turned into a Mill’s Fleet Farm Store. (They’re pretty big in Minnesota.) Part of the transformation includes removing any evidence that a Target ever existed here.
I’ve got a lot more lamps coming up. On one hand, I’d like to post only interesting and unusual lamps. One the other hand, I want to post as many as I can to ensure I win a no-expenses paid vacation to Hoopeston. After seeing the luxury accommodations Rich posted, I am more determined than ever to win the top prize, which in this case is 2nd place. I just have to be careful not to post TOO many lamps and reflectors, thereby earning only ONE week in the vacation capitol of middle America.
At least those lamps were turned off. I moved on to some residential areas and I could not believe how many lamps were still on in broad daylight. There were a LOT of them, but I limited my photos to just two.
That brings us to the end of the LAMP portion of this post. Now it’s time to move on to the reflectors. The next picture alone should pretty much GUARANTEE that I’ll be one of the top prize winners.
Well, see you again in a couple days.
