PHOTO FRIDAY SIGNS

SIGN ON MADISON AVE. COVINGTON, KY

I am amused every time I see this sign. I laugh inside thinking, "Yea right, all the most beautiful Exotic Dancers are beating down the doors to perform there!"  That is why I am submitting it for this weeks challenge.

It was snowing this morning. Early, when everything was still quiet and very peaceful, I ventured out to take this picture. The snow was an added bonus. The small snowfall muffled the morning. Only a handful of people were braving the elements walking about, and only slightly more were driving. I appreciate these moments because they are very rare.

I am totally enamored with the bridges in Northern Kentucky. I could photograph them everyday and always find something new and interesting about them. They seem to offer a gateway to my imagination, a portal, an adventure, new beginnings, lost dreams and starting over.

With the temperatures in the high 20's and the wind chill must have been in the teens because my legs were frozen, I could not drag myself away from the Riverwalk. I wandered around for over an hour in a mini-adventure in the swirling snow.

OH man I am sure all the most beautiful are there and there alone. Do they really think that intices anyone to believe it. yes the snow was pretty but you know I was finally ready for it to stay warm. Now it acts as if winter is just beginning. Lori

And just in case you don't have any $$ to see the most beautiful girls in the world, you can go next door and pawn your "left nut" to get in for a quick "look see" . Hey girly, You need to get some extra britches on to stay warm. Anne

You have a great sense of humor, Mary. The pawn shop next door tells us about the clientelle of that joint too. I love the snow in it. It added some texture and dimension to the picture. Great job! http://journals.aol.com/dcmeyer420/DearDiary/

Hasn't Covington always been known for its gambling and "wild women?"  Interesting photo.

I always wondered what happened to Vegas showgirls after they hit 50, their implants had shifted, and they needed money for vein-stripping. PAD. who knew?
