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?

      timothychughes 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/
