Zen Monday: Park It Here

Good morning. Had your coffee? This is the parking structure on Hudson just south of Walnut.

Has everyone gone green and taken public transportation this morning? Can you imagine a world of empty parking structures? I wonder how we might repurpose them?

Bibi said...

OOo, coooool! Love the green, and Kelly's idea of how we might use empty parking structures. Block party! But leave this beautiful green. Wonderful photo.

Stef said...

Beautiful colors!

What is the sound of one attendant napping?

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz …

Christie said...

Yes, I had my latte and croissant this morning! It was lovely, as is this bright green color! Can you imagine parking in a dingy cement colored one after this?

Lydia said...

Don't know how you caught the moment without one single car but what a shot!

I love Zen Monday, when the commenters write the commentary.

Kelly, what a marvelous thought to start with. So many things we might do with them, eh?

Thanks, Bibi. Yeah, I was captivated by that green, with the red pipes. Looks like Stef and Marley were, too!

uselaine, a free-form haiku from your free-form heart-mind. Thank you. A gentle challenge for bernie k.

Christie, I imagine if one has a positive outlook this green would be a pleasant morning greeting after latte and croissants. On the other hand, I wonder if it glares when one's not quite awake on Monday morning...

Lydia, I don't know either. It was kinda spooky.

Wow. I looked first without my glasses and thought it was a far distance view of gorgeous green fields and hills. Blur your eyes and see... !

Monday wasn't zen day for eee-may but I do favor the color green above all others. Hmmm, a new profile image?

Petrea said...

Lynn, you and I both need new glasses but for different reasons...

Palm, you're back! This means a new post on Palm Axis. I've glanced, and am intrigued. As all your posts do, this will require a leisurely hour of perusal and I look forward to it.

Petrea, a wonderful composition!

I do have to wonder, like a few others, where are the cars that belong here, though? And the Burlington Mall ... that looks pretty empty as well.

I shop in much the same way you do :)

Petrea said...

Thanks Chuck. I think I just got there late enough in the day and chose the right level. As for the Burlington Arcade, it was a matter of waiting for my moment...

What an interesting parking lot. I love the colors and the lines in the photo. It's almost like an artwork.

Love it - love it - love it!

Now if only the AMC theater parking structure here in Burbank was as empty as this. My legs kill me to walk that far because the lot is full...
