One way

 this is in charlestown where we were just taking some pics, last sunday. here i used a circular polarizer on my camera! :) i started reading up on that on wikipedia, but that page is endless and extremely boring, with quite some math and diffraction and all that kind of stuff we had at school. so i just quote the package: "improves contrast and color saturation in blue skies and white clouds". i am telling myself now that this pic indeed looks better because of the filter.. but i didnt take one without so i cant really tell...
i like the sign. one way. do not enter. it is so definite, if you enter.. there is no way back. at least, thats how it seemed to me. the sign is in front of some huge, really huge, circular towers. i think, judging from google maps, there are 5 of them. we pass by them every time tim brings/picks me up from work. i always wonder what they are. and that i should really take a picture of them (but they were too big; didnt fit!). behind that is a parking lot for school buses. looks also funny on google maps!
sometimes, i wish there were more of those signs, haha. in life in general. here we surely did not go beyond that sign.... but thats for another time to discuss! tim is telling me i should goto sleep....

The sky is realy beautiful, with the clouds and the yellow busses standing there.

good that you are not driving, it means you are in the wrong direction of the one way street and would hit all the traffic if you'd enter.... but your interpretation is much more poetic:) It indeed would be nice to have signs for life. Sometimes I wonder why people do not like communism, everybody is yearning for directions and help, but on the other side, they want to decide for themselves under all circumstances.

thank you! i like the buses too, there were soo many of them!
i would be a terrible driver; i dont even know whats left and right. and i feel the roads here in the us are sooo complicated. often to me its not clear at all where exactly you have to go, road crossings are really not very logical often... so while im still wondering, tim is already driving.. and i then ask him; oh, is this right?!
