Shadow Shot Sunday #142 ~ A Road Less Traveled

Do you imagine that the Montana road crew who painted these lines was completely sober?? Or, perhaps the painter had the hiccups! For more exciting Shadow Shots go visit Tracy at Hey Harriet.

Another possibility: the painter was irritated with his boss, so he purposely painted the lines crooked.


SILLY SHADOW DITTY

Shadows may or may not be
Patterns of urbanity.
If a shadow threatens you,
Here, my dear, is what to do:
Grab the shadow by the throat,
Toss it to a billy goat,
So the goat can chomp and chew,
Keeping it away from you!

The squiggly yellow lines are hilarious! And love the play of shadows round them too!

Ralph said...

The road crew added a whimsical style to the double yellow lines. Since you are in AZ, perhaps the stripes could be painted like this in order of the rattlesnakes crawling through the Sonoran desert...

Funny! A long time ago, driving a country road, I saw the officially painted "Smoke" "Idaho" "Green!" I can imagine that the paint crew thought it was hilarious!

Cassie girl TOO FUNNY !
maybe a combination of a little hot sauce and hiccups ? haha .. we always remark on what could the situation be when we see something like this .. I wonder if the road crew knows how entertaining they can be ??

LOL.. you sure that's Montana....I've seen that road somewhere!

Cassie said...

Hehe. Yup, It's route 508,the back road to Rexford, Montana, up the Yaak. A beautiful drive, but you better have a tank full of gas!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Cassie, How funny... It does look like someone had a little too much of something to drink that day!!!!! ha

Hugs,
Betsy

LDH said...

Well, something was going on when these lines were painted :) Great photo!

Stopping by to say hi and catch up on some of your posts!

Hmmm. I'm thinking the road may have been bumpy. (I'm giving the workers the benefit of the doubt...I haven't a clue why as you are probably correct about them having had too much to drink.)

im not an expert on the weather in montana...but generally this happens in very hot weather..the bitumen/asphalt on the roads semi melt and become runny..so the white/yellow marker lines painted on them become runny too and when the cool off...this is the result..i have seen it happen in my city during the peak summer season...
