Universe Closed

    Newer Older

    For reference: Universe and Rainbow are two streets in town that are really close to each other. Universe was closed and people were being redirected to Rainbow. It's quite the amusing sign.

    I had originally written that people were being redirected to Paradise, but that's not quite accurate. Paradise is another street in the area, and I have no idea why I thought it was involved whatsoever. :) Odds are good that the photo was taken on Paseo Del Norte. The intersection of Paseo and Universe is here.

    I acquired this photo from a friend who got it from a friend. I don't know who the original photographer was, but was informed that my usage was authorized.

      I love this! An instant fave for me... Is Paradise the next town or something?

      @shutterbugK8 In this context, Universe, Rainbow, and Paradise are all streets in far northwestern Albuquerque, NM. =)

      I used the photo in a blog post over here. It is attributed. You OK with this?

      That's the beauty of creative commons licensing. You've got it linked properly per the Flickr API, and you've got a simple attribution on there, and you're not making money on it, so you're meeting the T&C of the license. I'm cool with that. :)

      Hope it's OK - I posted this on my blog (with full credit to you and a link back). You did a great job getting this sign out to folks -- it's so cool! keaneato.net/2012/06/07/speaking-of-sign-language/
