Questionable photos

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words.  A picture is also worth few questions.


For Instance….


Pink truck

What inspired someone to paint a garbage truck pink?

What was so urgent that the driver found it necessary to pass me on the right, going 80mph?

Are garbage trucks normally capable of traveling at such speeds? 

If so… why? 

If not, what would possess someone to modify a garbage truck engine?


I will leave the questions to my readers.  I took this photo in my garage.



According to the sign, loitering is discouraged.


Why put a park bench next to the sign? 

Is this some kind of loitering trap?


How do you measure the difference between loitering and just sitting around enjoying the day?

I assume that loitering involves not buying anything.  But how much do you have to buy to not be loitering?  How much time does it buy you? 


Are there loitering police enforce human parking tickets? 

Do they mark you shoes and then check on you later?  

If you ran away from a loitering police could they charge you with anything?

Today I have more questions than answers.

    I’ve been wanting to take pictures of some pink sani-pump trucks in the city I live in.
    Maybe the company thinks pink garbage trucks will get noticed. … probably driving at 80 mph isn’t what the owner had in mind though.
    Maybe it was trying to outrun the flies. hee hee!

    I think most loitering signs are just put up so the owners can call the police when someone who’s a problem shows up.
    It’s like the “don’t talk to the bus driver” sign. I’m sure the driver will chat away quite happily with most people, but he /she needs something to point at when the weirdos show up.

    The entire “pink” movement has gone too far and offenders should be prosecuted!

    Your garage looks like it could breed paranoia.

    I think putting a table next to a “No Loitering” is an obvious ploy to put money into the Loitery police coffers.

    It’s been a while: what’s up?
    I hope everything is on the up and up.

    Maybe it’s a woman Garbage Truck driver. Were the mirrors broken from backing it into the garage, that’s a dead giveaway for woman drivers.
    Here in Tasmania (& Australia) there is a concrete company that has all their Cement Trucks painted Pink. The drivers even all wear pink macho truckie shirts

    remember the truck is probably a 16v 8.4 turbo straight from the factory and if there is no limmiter installed it can probably go as fast as the tyres will allow in a streight line!
