I have often seen signs that are old and cracked like this one (shown in the first and second photos) at the Star Fish Company. The design of the crazed plastic reminds me of a leaf. The Star Fish Company’s website shows their sign in earlier days. The Star Fish restaurant is one of my two favorite places to eat in Cortez. The seating is picnic tables on a dock. When I go, I always have the blackened mullet, served with hush puppies, cheese grits, and creamy cole slaw. Not the most healthful meal, but one of the most tasty. The other great down-home place to eat in Cortez is the Cortez Café. The name doesn’t even hint at their fantastic spanakopita and Greek salad. . . . But I digress. Here’s another crazy sign. The third photograph below is of a sign in Ohio’s Schoepfle Garden.
The detail shot reminds me of the cracked ice we see here in winter (but not lately).
I may have to go for fish today!

Now that you make me think about it, the crazed plastic is not that different in appearance from the cracked-up shale on the shore of the Vermilion River. See https://lindagrashoff.wordpress.com/2014/07/28/july-2014-shale-shore-3/.

Another great group, and I enjoy hearing a little of the background. Mouthwatering!
The first is a terrific abstract and the last – I love the way it floats on the background – perfect framing.

Thank you, Lynn. I confess that I shoot almost everything at ƒ13 (the sweet spot on my lens), but I knew that I wanted the background to go out of focus on that last photo. Was happy that it worked out—and now I’m happy that you like it.
