This sign caught my eye right as I was starting my drive down Apache/Main in Mesa. It wasn't until after I looked at it for a while on my computer screen that I figured out what kind of store it was...

Some people love to plan the perfect picture and execute. I like to plan the perfect random process and get surprised by what emerges. When I started digging into this picture I found all sorts of fun things, which I have annotated above. (Explore)

    i caught 'separation anxiety' sign after the 'personal preference' sign, but i missed the light pole causing the separation in the beer bottle.

    great fun !! love it !!!!!
