Not DC, Denver

My travels have prevented me from shooting any My DC photos this week, so instead, I’ll post a couple of pictures from Denver that I might not have taken but for this project. Both Hillary and sprite have mentioned in their My DC posts the importance of looking up — that what is interesting in our day-to-day world is often above our heads. This is true, of course, but sometimes it’s also beneath our feet. Trying to get an interesting shot or two each week has, I think, made me more observant overall.

I have no other explanation for why, upon noticing what I suspected might be an unusual quirk in the elevators in my hotel, my first instinct was to pull out my camera. On the second day of my stay, I realized I was right — the elevator had days-of-the-week carpets! The vertical transit equivalent of days-of-the-week underpants! Hee hee!

(Yes, I think this is hilarious. No, I don’t know why.)

    Maybe it’s in case the guests have had too good a time the night before and they just can’t miss those signs if their heads are hung down 🙂 In any event, cool!

    @ Eileen – Yeah, that’s what Bossman said when I mentioned them to him — that sometimes travelers are on the road so much they forget what day it is. Makes sense to me.

    @ Mom – I’m pretty sure the H is for Hotel (as in Oxford Hotel), not for anything to do with me. 😉

    Very funny! I know some young learners who would have a ball with that!
