I made my monthly trip down to MY DAD’S Town last Thursday, and I stayed for a couple extra days. I brought my bike with me too, so I was able to ride around and get some imperfect photos of imperfect things for the almost-perfect August Challenge. Now I’m back in MY Town and I’m ready to post those imperfect pictures of Iowa imperfections.
I saw the first item of imperfection within the first couple of blocks. That would be the sign shown in the featured photo. It would be hard to miss the imperfection in a signpost and frame that had no sign in it. After that, I noticed another imperfect sign. That’s when I decided to make imperfect signs the theme of my ride and, therefore, of this post.
Before I go, I want to show a photo for the Pattern part of the August Challenge. All of the downtown streets in Oelwein have a snake-like pattern of bricks embedded into the concrete sidewalks. Some folks might be turned off by it, but I think giant pythons slithering all over town are pretty cool.
