Zen Monday: #65


Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo's about. I look for something worth thinking about or, failing that, at least something odd.

As I post each new Zen Monday photo, I'll add a label to last week's to identify it if necessary (if I know what it is).

a little color never hurt anyone. Including posts.

Is this where the NASA tryouts are located?

That reminds me, I need to write my Senator about restoring funding for the space program.

I suppose J will say something like -- what's the sound of one post yellowing.

J+P said...

That's the sound of one joke proliferating.

Dorothy realized that she was most definitely lost.

Watch out for the post!

The whole thing, the posts, the railing, the drain clean-out, gives me pipe dreams.

But seriously, in keeping with the Zen directive, my thought of the week is 'division'.

Worried that exploration of the solar system by JPL spacecraft would trigger attacks by aliens, NASA built a decoy JPL lab nearby, using yellow - a color extremely attractive to extraterrestrials - as a lure. Petrea, this is a top secret facility - how on earth did you get anywhere near it?

Damn, I've fallen and i can't get up!

Well, the writing on the pavement is a little tough to see, apparently. But that is sometimes the case with a Zen Monday shot. You have to look carefully to see what's Zen about it, meaning what does the photo teach? (As if there was actual erudition to be found here on a Monday.)

I'm not sure what NASA has to do with this place, Katie. It's way across town from JPL and nowhere near Caltech. I'll find out and post the info in a few days. I remember the site has something to do with WWII and maybe torpedoes. ? Maybe Bellis is right and it's a decoy facility.

The mama yellow pole, with her young polelets close behind, walked from the sunshine into the shade.

By the way, NASA has several small satellite (no pun intended) facilities throughout Pasadena.

I have a tendency to drool. Sorry.

Art isn't easy

This would have made a great image for the upcoming October theme of contrasts.
