another of life's small ironies...

Yesterday was my first day of work following the change to Daylight Saving Time. Thus, for the first time in a while, there was a significant length of time after work during which there was still light out. So I took a trip to Durham. I wanted to use my five dollar coupon to Hayden Sports, but I didn't see anything that struck me. After another great meal at the Durham House of Pizza, I walked back to my car.

As I did so, I turned my head over my shoulder, and noticed a spectacular view - the kind that made me pull out my camera and start shooting. After taking a couple of shots, I looked down and saw an old Ron Paul campaign sign, which had probably been there for over two months. The funny thing about this is that on my way home, less than three hours prior, I had thought about trying to procure such a sign from one of the intersections along Route 1 in Portsmouth. So I picked up the sign, cleaned it off, and threw it in the back of the Minivan o' War.
