One of these things is not like the others…

One of these things just doesn’t belong.

Well, it does belong, because it fits the

theme of grey, but when I looked at all 4 of the pictures I picked for this post, I flashed back to Sesame Street and their little “doesn’t belong” game.

And the fun thing is that my infrared camera works perfectly for this theme, so here are some more infrared pictures.

I’m not sure what a “dry standpipe” is, but this shiny chrome setup is on the outside of the parking structure they built with the building next to the Chevron.

Great captures but also very bleak looking shots.

Hate to say it but I will be so glad when all the utility wires are underground. They are always spoiling my shots.

Standpipes are pipes to which fire hoses can be connected. I'm liking the 'wired' streets. Let us all push for underground utilities.

This was a fun game! What a lucky break having that super cool new camera just for this theme. Your last photo, I'm not sure what it's for either, although I've seen if before, and yeah I will probably have to google it now, thank you very much! But Max the shine is very impressive. What a fun camera!

Very very grey! I like the shiny chrome whotsit.

Rita - I'm with you on the underground wires, above ground ones are always getting in my pictures.

Jim - thanks for the info. They're starting to push for underground cables in new developments, but there's not much chance of getting the ones that are already there put underground.

Karen - Thanks, I'm still learning about the camera, but having fun with it.

Alexia - that's what drew me to take the picture, the shiny chrome of it.

Hi Max ~~ I call all those wires and also the high and/or large signs 'sky pollution.'

Thank you for peeking in on my grey cat. It too was a 'find' at the little bit of grass beside the childrens playground in sand base.

Love the dry standpipe. Nice shiny greys! The skies look pretty threatening, too!

I think the sesame street song might just play through my mind the rest of the morning :) I like your grey!

Max, will you be able to take pictures of aliens with your new camera?

As long as they give off body heat I will.

There's an ethereal tone to everything you've shot here. Dreamy, almost. I love looking at the world through your lens.
