Groceries! Part whatever.

I’ve captured a few interesting shots here and there lately, so it’s time to share. I’m gonna save my fave for last, but let’s start with this one, found in the cheap wine section:

That pretty much sums up the attitude of people who buy box wine. YEP.

I’ve been wanting to capture this little mixed message for several trips now, but located as it is at the front doors to the store, and given the fact that I never remember about it until I’m on my way out and my phone is already stored away, it’s been a hard one to catch. But on a recent quick trip where I was just picking up a few things I remembered to leave my phone out, and although the shot’s a little blurred I think you can still make out the quandary this might put a shopper in if she or he is too literal-minded:

I’m not sure what to do here.

I passed by these pastel-colored booze bottles on the way to the checkout line one day (didn’t pay attention to what sort of booze they contain) and couldn’t resist a quick snap. On its own the picture wasn’t worth much so I gave it the Pixlr treatment:

What happens to your vision if you drink too many of these.

This is one of my favorite iPhone captures of recent memory. This little heart post-it was stuck to the parking lot concrete right behind some dude who was getting out of his car when I stopped to take the photo; he looked at me like I was bonkers, but he did keep his feet out of the shot.

When searching for art in the everyday, be sure to look down on occasion.

  1. Funny and observant, as usual. Love the bottles picture – Explore written all over it, imho. Taking pictures in public requires nerves of steel and disinhibition, probably something everyone should do therapeutically :-).

    • That reminds me I mean to keep making a post about “how” to get on Explore, although supposedly there’s no trick to it at all. I’ve still observed a few things that tend to up the chances. Thanks!

      • That would be really interesting. I just assumed you have to be somewhat expert to get noticed that way but sometimes I see pictures there that surprise me (most of them are fab though).

  2. I too love the wine bottle picture.
    Did you know that it is against most “Mall” security to allow pictures to be taken within the mall? Of course everyone with a phone does it, but set up a tripod and camera and you’re liable to get a snotty kid with a security badge, saying “No-no.”
